Currently a teacher in her final year of training at the Mandala Yoga Ashram, Oxana is a committed yoga practitioner and an authentic and compassionate teacher. Her yogic journey began in 1991, when she was first introduced to yogic philosophy and the concept of agni yoga whilst studying performing arts in the conservatoire in the city of Magnitogorsk in the Ural Mountains of Russia. Since then Oxana has embarked on the journey of self-development and self-discovery. Her life experience and knowledge is weaved into every aspect of her teaching aimed at inspiring her students to achieve their true potential through yoga practice and philosophy.
Over the years Oxana has completed a number of courses related to Yoga and Buddhism, including a course in Buddhist Philosophy, Mindfulness Meditation and an Aurolab Project Yoga Foundation Course created by Sama Fabian, one of the founders of the International Yoga Network (IYN) organisation, taught by the inspiring Michelle Lambert. Oxana has practiced the Iyengar style of yoga for many years with Padmasimha, an inspiring and experienced yoga teacher and the founder of the Yoga Studio in Cardiff. This has provided an excellent foundation for a strong physical practice focussed on correct body alignment and the development of mental focus and resilience.
Based on her experience and knowledge Oxana is able to blend a fusion of asana styles into her classes, including elements of Iyengar, ashtanga, yin and power yoga. She is trained in ancient tantric meditation techniques, yoga nidra, pranayama and mantra practices which she incorporates into her classes.
