Lada is Russian-born and emigrated to the US in 1990, just prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union. She studied gymnastics through the age of 15. When she moved to Eugene in 1996 with her family, there wasn’t an adult gymnastics class in town so she found that yoga was the perfect evolution where she could learn and grow physically as well as spiritually. 20 years later, she’s still an avid student of different types of yoga and loves to lead yoga classes. She got her hatha yoga teacher diploma in 2014. Her style combines traditional yoga asanas with her playful spirit.
She currently teaches TGIF Yoga on Fridays at noon in the main room. All levels welcome! Sliding scale $8+
