Igor’s first love is fencing. He was encouraged by a fellow fencer to give yoga a try to improve overall flexibility and lunging. Right away he embraced the physical gains, but also the meditation aspect of the yoga practice. He found the hour devoted to the practice of yoga released the troubles and worries of the past day and anxieties of tomorrow. Yoga became a very Zen-like practice for him where he could concentrate on the present moment. Calming his mind and releasing the day's noise became an important part of his routine.
Igor brings this philosophy to his teaching. He strives to have each student reach the full expression of their bodies by getting lost in each breath and movement. He often says, “Don’t hold the pose for 5 or 10 breaths. Be the pose.” Igor’s classes are physically challenging opportunities to experience fun and well-rounded practices.
