PATH TO YOGA, SHORT VERSION

2003

Started with simple asanas, that were meant for pregnant ladies and dealt with the body.

 

2009

My family doctor introduced me to Tiina Pakostaga, who introduced Art of Living and the teachings of Šri Šri Ravi Šhankar to Estonian public. I took part in several courses and practiced in this tradition.  I helped Tiina locally to organise different courses and events and am connected to the organisation till this day. The beginner courses of Art of Living, Sahaj Samadhi meditation, Ayurveda and the visits of Swami Jyotirmayah were enjoyed by the people of Rakvere. Last visitor was Kishan Agarwal.

In parallel to that i got to know the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and viniyoga at Kai Rohumäe group class.

2013

I asked K. Desikachar if he would take some Estonian kids to his private yoga therapy sessions via Skype. He agreed. I translated the sessions, when needed and thought the practices he gave. It was a great learning opportunity for me. That was the time I felt i became his student.
