The Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Hindu scripture, describes Yoga in a number of ways. One of them is as following: “Yoga is a heightened sensitivity and awareness of all life around us and within us, and an outpour of love in reciprocation with life’s wonder and beauty.”
Hatha Yoga in particular is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. It uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.
Eugene’s yoga journey started in Dallas in 2006, when a friend introduced him to the practice of Bikram yoga. He immediately recognized the huge impact the practice could have on improving his overall wellbeing: he became a regular student and even started competing in the Annual Yoga Asana Competitions in 2007.
He was silver medalist in the 2009 Texas Regional and placed in the top 10 at the 2010 National Yoga Asana Competition. He was bronze medallist in the 2013 Texas Regional.
In 2010 He embarked on the intense Teacher Training Program and graduated as a qualified Bikram yoga teacher; since then he’s been teaching the Bikram beginners series across many studios around the world, as well as attending several advanced seminars and regularly leading advanced classes.
He treasures the opportunity to share his love of yoga with the students and see their lives change for the better through a regular practice.
