Hi everyone! My name is Ivan and I have been doing Yoga from the age of 13. At the age of 14 and 15 respectively I participated in the Bulgarian Yoga Championship, supported by the Bulgarian Yoga Federation and became an Absolute Yoga Champion twice. Since then I participated in a number of seminars and explored different styles of Yoga - from Hatha to Ashtanga, Meditation, Pranayama, Partner and Acro. I also took part in public sports and private youth events. However, to me, Yoga was more than a competition and way to become flexible. Yoga is a lifestyle. Yoga helps you in being healthy both physically and mentally. Yoga brought happiness and joy to my life, as well as so much energy, will and discipline. I wanted to share all the positive aspects that yoga lifestyle brought to my life, that is why I have decided to become a Yoga Teacher. When I was 20 years old, I won a scholarship and joined a yoga teacher training course in the holy town of Rishikesh, India. A month in India was filled with knowledge absorption, thanks to the great teachers from Ojashvi Yoga Shala, as well as discipline, appreciation and gratitude. We had classes such as Applied Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy, Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama and Ayurveda. I have learned a lot and cannot wait to share it with other enthusiastic individuals! Drop me an email if you are interested in having a Yoga class with me. Currently based in Southampton, Hampshire. Ready to travel to nearby cities. Available for Hatha Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness, and Ashtanga Yoga classes.
