About

Yoga was born in India thousands of years ago, it is a powerful system of spiritual and physical self-improvement; today it became popular all over the world. Great yoga teachers said that this science belongs to all humanity. According to the insights of sages in ancient India, each one of us is Atman – a soul, and that means yoga lives in all of us, because it is a way of discovering your soul. And it does not matter where exactly on our planet we were born and where we live.

Our creative team practice yoga for a long time, and we consider it an important part of our lives. Many of our authors are professional yoga teachers. Our willingness to share our ideas and information, our desire to tell others about interesting people and events in the world of yoga, and, finally, just an urge for creative self-expression have brought us to making this magazine.



Dr. Maxim Yasochka

Founder, Director, Co-editor

I took up karate when I was 13. My trainer, who was also my teacher of programming, also made us draw and write poems. Since 1997, still being a student, I taught yoga and wrote books on it. Together with Sergey Sidortsov and Tolik Zenchenko, we produced our first-born, “Yoga of Eight Circles - Set Training”.

My body has been haunting me since childhood and I invented various ways of keeping it busy. As many yogis, I spent most of my school time in the karate brotherhood.
