Ksenia started her yoga journey in 2012 with a Bikram yoga class: having always thought yoga was boring, she found that the hot challenging sequence connected with her in a different way. Two years later she became certified by Bikram (2014) and started traveling the world sharing her love of yoga.
Originally from Moscow, Russia, Ksenia has taught in Europe, Asia and North America. Teaching and practicing in different parts of the world has inspired her to explore other styles of yoga.
In 2015 while teaching in Jakarta, Ksenia fell in love with Ashtanga yoga “the practice of the warrior” that brought her all the way to Mysore, India – the birthplace of Ashtanga Yoga where she studied the traditional practice and asana adjustments (2016).
In 2017 Ksenia came to the Bay Area to complete the 300-hour Teacher Training at Samyama Yoga Center in Palo Alto, CA where she studied under John Berg. Inspired by her anatomy teacher Louis Jackson, Ksenia continued movement education and completed Yoga Tune Up® Level 1 training in 2018.
“Yoga is my one-on-one time with the real me. Yoga practice gives me a clear mind, great ideas, insightful thoughts and of course, health benefits! Yoga gives me, me” – she says.
Ksenia’s Vinyasa classes combine yoga experience from different parts of the world. She feels they reflect the power of calmness, promote posture alignment and encourage the synchronization of breath with movement. Students often say her classes are challenging but somehow, she makes it easy for you to get through :).
