Elina comes from St. Petersburg, Russia. She graduated from St. Petersburg State University of Economics and Finance. Since then she has worked in finance. After the birth of her second child she was looking for an exercise that would help her get rid of her health complications. She tried Pilates, step aerobics, Zumba and several types of yoga. Everything helped her, but she was not at all entertained. Only once she came across the Bikram Yoga Prague studio did she find an exercise that really engaged her. Right after the first lesson, Elina knew that she had finally found the right kind of exercise. It was love "at first Pranayama." She started practicing once a week, then twice, then three times, and finally she could no longer imagine a life without Bikram Yoga.

Practicing in a heated room at 42° C liberated her, healed her, and repeatedly delivered a good dose of endorphins. At the end of each lesson she felt like a happy rag doll. To help other people feel the same, she decided to become an instructor. Elina graduated from Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico in the fall of 2017 and immediately returned to teach both basic and children's lessons. She regularly prepares and participates in the Czech Championship. She deepened her practice at another training program in Thailand in the autumn of 2018. Elina raises two successful sporty children; Bikram Yoga is a common hobby for the whole family.


Most and Least Favorite Postures

Every posture of Bikram yoga affects the body and mind, affects muscles, joints, breath, circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems, all organs and glands. It is virtually impossible to choose my favorite. It is also almost impossible to select the least popular posture as well. For example, the Rabbit - Sasangasana. It is an extremely difficult task for someone with a sedentary job to round the spine, especially its lower part. Sasangasana immediately relieves stress, revitalizes the body, and is one of the best postures to get rid of belly fat. So, actually, it's a favorite?
