Teacher Profiles
Dr. Abhay Keste
Dr. Abhay Keste
Sushumna is deeply honored to introduce Dr. Abhay Keste, who will be joining the teacher faculty for Sushumna Yoga Teacher Training “A path on the way to rediscovering that we come from Enlightenment” to teach Iyengar yoga and anatomy lessons to the students. Dr. Keste is a remarkable disciple of BKS Iyengar, who, after finalizing his Iyengar yoga training at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune, opened Shrikant Yoga Centre in Belgaum with the aim to offer his instruction and share his knowledge of perfect, holistic health. By now, there are two Shrikant Yoga Centres, one of which was inaugurated by the Guruji, BKS Iyengar himself. Perhaps the success of Abhay’s centers can be accredited to his degree in homeopathic medicine and surgery, which enables him to teach yoga with a very strong focus on proper alignment, as well as physiological perspective. He started his journey on the path of yoga along with his father, who took up a yogic lifestyle himself as a means to improve his health. Dr. Abhay Keste has since come to the great realization that yoga can pose as a highly effective and powerful source of rejuvenation on the physical as well as the mental and, ultimately, the spiritual level. He maintains that health is linked to one’s mind and thus, the body-mind connection cannot be underestimated in light of optimum health and well-being. Abhay claims that nowadays, we are confronted and at times even threatened by our busy lives and fastpaced daily routines, which often tempt our minds to wonder and focus on various external information, while the inner self is discarded. This leads to imbalance and detachment that in turn can begin to manifest as pathology. It is for this reason that he believes yoga to be the best system to achieve true freedom, serenity and bliss. He also stresses that yoga is universal – every person can use it to their advantage, it is like a free medicine that we always carry with us. Dr. Keste keeps up with his personal practice under the guidance of the Guruji, who has visited Shrikant Yoga Centre on occasion, as well. Often claimed to be the personification of yoga, Abhay is a wonderfully joyous person with a radiant smile, kind word and helping hand. And by the way, he can stand on his head for 105 minutes – practice makes perfect indeed!
Ivan Melikadze
Ivan Melikadze
Ivan’s path to world of yoga began 7 years ago at the Moscow Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Center. Before this time, Ivan was a typical computer freak, weighed 100kg and round-shouldered. He started yoga practice because of health issues which started to appear. It was tough and challenging in the beginning, taking into account Ivan was 32 and had not done any physical exercise since a teenager. As it often happens with yoga, Ivan was inspired by the spiritual depth and he slowly moved deeper and deeper into the realms of yoga soon realizing the purpose of his life. Ivan left a manager’s position in a large computer company and moved to China where he started to teach. Ivan teaches in several yoga studios in Beijing and is here with us for the season. He believes yoga can cardinally change one’s life and give one the opportunity to reveal their spiritual being. He uses Iyengar style alignments and Andrey Lappa’s ‘universal approach’, has a dramatic impact, on Ivan’s teaching style. “For me yoga class is not just postures and alignments but rather exchanging energy”. Ivan also teaches yoga therapy, yoga philosophy and Kirtan/chanting.
Nana Sun
Nana Sun
Nana is certified by Shri Sheshadri of Mysore Mnadala in Mysore, India. She hails from Moscow and is a practitioner and mentor of Yoga in India, China and all over the world. She has learnt a wide range of subjects relating to Yoga and Psychology, endeavoring to make energy and creativity alive in her, and others around her. She believes that to adapt to a modern lifestyle, much more is required in the teaching of asanas than merely being knowledgeable and experienced. Inspiration and Co-operation are needed for a high standard to gradually appear, and become a reference point, that both teachers and students can safely rely on. Besides the choice of postures, sequencing is an Art where knowledge is essential to high quality teaching. She seeks to adapt to what students hope to find in Yoga through these different styles: Ashtanga Vinyasa, Flow Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Hatha Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, Sivananda Yoga. She has also developed her own personal approach inspired by Iyengar and Viniyoga, Shadow Yoga, Spinal health and Universal Yoga. She believes clarity matters in all aspects of life i.e: in actions, emotions and thoughts and is essential but easily broken without a tool like Yoga to achieve this.
