Ashtanga Yoga at PRANA Yoga Centre

PRANA Yoga Centre was founded in 2007. It is the largest in Moscow and in Russia with three studios containing several comfortable yoga rooms each, located near the “Barrikadnaya”, “Timiryazevskaya” and “Voikovsraya” metro stations.

Ashtanga Yoga according to the original tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois has evolved at PRANA Yoga Centre since its foundation. It was encouraged and promoted with a great contribution from Mikhail Galaev, the director of PRANA Yoga Centre, who managed to develop a warm and creative environment.

PRANA Yoga Centre has hosted various workshops with world-famous Ashtanga Yoga teachers like Petri Räisänen, Lino Miele, Mark and Joanne Darby, Govinda Kai and Eddie Stern. As a partner, PRANA has provided its facilities for workshops and events with R. Sharath Jois, R. Saraswati Jois, Richard Freeman, Kino McGregor, David Robson and Tim Feldman.

Two books by Petri Räisänen on Primary and Intermediate series “Ashtanga Yoga” (2011) and “Nadi Sodhana” (2014) have been published in Russian with the assistance of PRANA Yoga Centre. Today these books provide the most accurate and vivid description in Russian of the traditional series.
