My name is Cosmin and I am a seeker.
My life is the Supreme Practice, my mat is the earth underneath my feet, and each and every step I take is my Asana.
My breath is the Pranayama, the movement through the space of my existence is the Vinyasa.
The Realization of all this is the Highest Meditation.
I devote my deeds and and my living to the Supreme. He is my birth, my death, the purpose of my existence. I breath, act, laugh and smile through HIM.
I am here, NOW, by means of HIS Supreme Grace.
Many years I was looking for HIM without even knowing, I was looking for purpose, for a scope. I wanted to belong, to identify myself with something. Why was I born? Why I go to school and learn all that stuff? Why I am happy or sad and why certain things make me feel great exuberance and others drag me down into the deepest darkness?
WHO AM I?
All my life I was looking for answers, and the more I was looking for them, the more darkness I had found. I got frustrated, sick, sad and desperate.
I tried to end this because I couldn't find its purpose, I couldn't find myself in the incomprehensible network of my own thoughts.
Drug abuse, addictions and rage became my natural state. I got off balance even more when I tried to live a “normal” life, working as any other person, in an office, from 9 to 5, coming home, enjoying TV, weekends and 2 week holidays.
I did not know of that time, but the Misery I was experiencing was the greatest teacher I had ever had; this Misery was the trampoline, the momentum that I needed to jump out of the well of sorrow. It was an extremely powerful force that enabled the will of liberating myself of all that darkness, so I could experience HIS Light.
As I was taking my first breath of Freedom, I could see and feel the wide Space of the Infinite. I realize that I have the hammer and the power to torn down all the walls I was building into the dungeon of my own and I started to hit; I hit them hard, with passion and thirst. I was rejoicing seeing them falling down, and as the Sun started to show from beyond the ruins of the past, I find myself surrounded with splendor and pure bliss.
I am Cosmin, and I am Free. You can be too.
Born in Romania, immigrated to Canada, Cosmin had his first encounter with yoga more than 20 years ago in a place and a time when everything related with spirituality was prohibited. During his youth, he practice martial arts and meditation, in search for his purpose, for his Dharma. In the last 5 years he dedicates himself completely to his yogic practice, leaving his architect job in favor of the spiritual development.
He studies different yoga styles with well known teachers, and in 2011 he meets his master, Bhooma Chaitanya in Dharamsala, India. An autodidact with passion for the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, Cosmin had the opportunity to train with Sri Manju Pattabhi Jois, the son of late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois – with which he keeps practicing each year – with David Williams (one of the early westerners that came to study in India with Pattabhi Jois, responsible for popularizing Ashtanga Yoga in US) and Chuck Miller among others, in order to take his practice to the next level. To the day Cosmin dedicates his life to the teaching and practice of the traditional styles of Yoga, Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga, offering all his efforts for the benefit of all beings. Harih Om.
