Svitlana’s yoga journey, which began in 1999, has led her to the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. She is dedicated to bringing her training at the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, to her Mysore Programme at Breathe Yoga, the studio she founded in 2001.
Those attending Svitlana’s Mysore classes will be individually advanced through the Ashtanga yoga series of postures. Through one on one guidance and attention, students work according to their own individual abilities.
While learning the deeply rich tradition of Ashtanga yoga, students can expect to develop greater strength, flexibility and discipline in their physical practice while achieving calmness of mind – both on the mat and off – through the meditative element the series brings. Svitlana welcomes students of all levels of yoga practice to her classes.
When not teaching or managing the studio, Svitlana loves to travel with her husband, further her yoga studies, play with interior design and volunteer her time. She is an Ambassador for Operation Shanti, a home for destitute children and seniors in Mysore, India and serves on the Board of Directors at the UCC, a long term care home for Toronto’s Seniors.
