Influenced by Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar and a careful pinch of Kundalini Yoga, there is a focus on safe/gradual alignment and breath-to-movement connection in his classes. More than anything Yoga is shared appropriately with a warm, loving heart with those that are attending class on that particular occasion with no single class being the same. Dima has definitely been known to let the goofy out of the bag, so a boring time it shall not be, by now this is almost a guarantee! After homework practice is done, it’s flowing jazz time in class. Potential = Unlimited, + Beauty
Formerly teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Dima at the same time grew up with a personal appreciation of meditation practice taking from many traditions, though largely influenced by secular as well as traditional sources from Zen and Indian Source Buddhism. These days you may find him practicing with various sanghas in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village Zen tradition, Deer Park Monastery being home-base. Completing his Yoga teacher training at Miracosta College in heaven-like Southern California with the world-class master teacher Stacy McCarthy, Dima is most eager to share his love of functional psychology and some concrete biology in class while teaching safe and effective alignment-based Vinyasa Flow. In any class, a heavy emphasis is given to personal attention and a sincere human being interaction.
