Biography

“When yoga came into my life, it brought balance, freedom of thought, openness to people and new ideas, inner optimism and a sound physical shape. Yoga helped me to open new horizons in understanding the environment, people and myself.

With the help of yoga I’ve learned to look at every moment realistically, fearlessly and with love… …now I wish to share it with you”

Myla took her first Teacher Training with YogaWorks at Center for Yoga, where she acquired knowledge of proper alignment and anatomy of movement. Searching for the deeper meaning of yoga, she attended various workshops led by Annie Carpenter, Sherry Brourman, Andrei Lappa, Kia Miller, Duncan Wong, and Mark Whitwell, to name a few.

After spending four days with B.K.S. Iyengar at a conference in Moscow, Myla made up her mind to explore the origins of yogic tradition and to study it from the very roots. Grasping for more, her path led her to India, where she finished Yoga Teacher Training with Ayurveda. This intense training provided answers to many questions and made it very clear that yoga has much more to offer than asana practice.

Equipped with basic yoga therapy tools, Myla taught yoga in Ukraine for two years, working with structural and psychological imbalances. Seeing how the practice of yoga can alleviate pain and suffering, Myla shifted her practice from a strong vinyasa to a more therapeutic approach, by addressing individual needs in the class. She also finished her 300-hour Yoga Therapy Training led by Maetreyii Nolan, Ananda Deviika Ma, Sarasvati Buhrman, Mukunda Stiles, Jnani Chapman, Richard Miller, Gloria Tucker, Antonio Sausys, and Kelly McGonigal. She is currently enrolled in California College of Ayurveda.

Myla is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and registered with Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level.
