For as long as Slava can remember, he has always been curious about the human body and it’s the complexity of expression. After taking a 10 day silent Vipassana retreat, he decided to dedicate himself fully to the practice of movement. He now teaches Yoga full time in Vancouver – holding space for weekly classes, assisting teacher training, hosting workshops and international retreats.Aside from his full-time practice as a Yogi, he constantly pursues different disciplines, from Hand Balancing, Circus Acrobatics, AcroYoga, Contact Dance, Capoeira, Chinese Martial Arts, Tai Chi and much more.
