**Dmytro’s first priority will be each student’s safety and comfort.
Dmytro grew up in the small town of Veselinovo in southern Ukraine and speaks both Ukrainian and Russian. His father was a personal trainer and motivated him to engage in an active lifestyle from a young age. He started wrestling at the age of 6. He enjoys an active lifestyle, especially calisthenics, movement arts, and climbing. He also is fond of photography, art and trawling.
In Dmytro’s first class in New York City in 2012, he was shaking intensely and found holding the poses super challenging. Amazed that after a lifetime of physical fitness and sports, he found yoga to be a provocative practice to develop a new and different approach to fitness and health. He committed himself to return to class and has been motivated ever since by the continuous challenges that yoga presents for the body and mind.
In Dmytro’s class, your world will be turned upside down with arm balances and handstands in a guided and safe way. He wants his students to feel freedom, trust and the ability to engage in a playful spirit. His classes are known for intensity, community, and fun.
See you on the mat.
