    Lev is a conscientious and deliberate teacher. He helped me focus on grounding my poses which helped me with building strength and flexibility. This is not westernized suburbanite yoga, Lev's teachings are rooted in a deeper connection with the self and finding physical release from a combination of breath, mindfulness, and posture.
