Guided by the Buddhist principle of metta (loving-kindness), she creates a supportive and safe environment in which to explore and grow. Her classes focus on breathing, alignment, mindful movement, and love! She sees yoga asana as a vehicle for mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual transformation. 

 

Polina Leibovskaia - Infrared Yoga 

Balance is what keeps Polina happy and a regular Yoga practice became a very important part in her life because it helped find the balance that keeps one calm, grounded and motivated.  Polina chose to become a yoga instructor so that she could share this positive experience with others; encouraging them to feel good about moving their bodies and helping them to release the tension that builds up as a result of the  daily grind. She presently teaches the Infrared Vinyasa Flow classes at The Flying Yogi for all level of students. Her classes focus on dynamic sequencing of yoga poses with synchronized breathing.

Polina completed her Suspension Yoga teacher training in the Fall of 2013.
