Karma is a Sanskrit term that literally means action or doing. In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to action driven by intention which leads to future consequences. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us. Hence Karma says : Be yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have in your life. Don’t’ forget When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
Karma is our greatest teacher, making us accountable for what we do and giving us opportunities to learn from our mistakes and make amends. So be Good and Do Good; It is a cosmic law; applies to everyone, everywhere, all the time.

Nitai Krishna, an adventurous yogi from Ghana aims to inspire more people into yoga as a journey to their personal growth on the physical, mental and spiritual level. In teaching, he provides a non judgmental environment and encourages students to focus on the breath, proper alignment, challenge themselves, while remaining safe, playful and lighthearted.
To Nitai, yoga is a way to control the monkey mind, to bring peace within and awaken pure devotion to our Divine Source. In one word, he describes himself as a learner. Apart from yoga, he’s also passionate about singing Kirtans and doing art.
He’s been practicing ashtanga, hatha and dynamic vinyasa yoga styles for more than 5 years. His class is an “all level” class and open especially for those willing to be challenged and expand their practice. His teacher training includes 500 hr Yoga Alliance courses at Radhika Yoga with Jayaprada Radhika and Jesús Qcori Malki & several workshops.
With an academic background in Philosophy and a special interest in cognitive sciences, Desire was always curious and fascinated by the ways mind works and found in yoga a perfect playground for such explorations.
Reconnecting body and mind, moving awareness out of the cerebral, instrumental, and patterned space of our heads into an open, non-judging landscape of the whole body offers endless opportunities to discover the depths of Self, to be with what is and process things as they are. Yoga is an inquiry into what it means to be alive, embodied, sensing, experiencing, focusing, engaging and interacting with life. The practice of presence. My classes are relaxed explorations of this presence and are suitable for everyone. Sometimes strong and fluid & sometimes softer with long holdings but always slow and deep with emphasis on the experience of movement and sensations within.
I love the rhythmic fluidity of Vinyasa, the static strength of Hatha and delicious depth of Yin â€“ whichever the style I teach I tend to offer a blend of movement sequences through which we are strengthening, stretching, balancing, expanding, grounding and exploring energies within, returning to ourselves.[/read]

The founders of Jivamukti – the wife of David Life and Sharon Gannon – spent much time in India in the late 1970s and learned the practice of yoga from the great Guru Swami Sivananda and Swami Nirmalananda. Back in America, Sharon and David created a unique method of transferring the knowledge of this practice – Jivamukti yoga – which includes five principles: ahimsa (nonviolence), bhakti (veneration, respect), meditation, nada (sound), sastra (study of yogic texts). The method is based on the principle of Vinyasa krama, i.e. conscious connection of breathing and movement of the body.
By embodying the basic principles of Jivamukti yoga, in her classes, Alyona inspires those who are engaged in comprehending yoga not only as a physical aspect also as a spiritual practice, transforming the traditional methods of yoga into modern life and encouraging self-knowledge. Alyona has a kriya yoga initiation from Guru Shri Shailendra Sharma (India).
Big thank you to Sharon and David life for the great adventure, to the Jivamukti team, To Yogeswari for her love and passion for life, and to NYM yoga (Jivamukti Yoga Moscow) for giving the possibility for to grow as a Jivamukti Teacher. Thank you so much to my Teacher Shri Shailendra. His presence in my life is priceless
