Guest Teacher at AYM -August 18th to 25th, 2018
Kiril Yordanov will be our guest teacher from August 18th to the 25th. Kiril has traveled around the world practicing and teaching. We hope you enjoy the week with him and that you will take full benefit as he has recently spent a month with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor in Boulder. In 2017 Kiril received the blessings from Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois (Authorized Level 1) to teach the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method and assisted Him in the KPJAYI Main Shala 2 consecutive seasons in March 2017 and in January 2018.
Kiril believes in the ancient principle of Guru-Shishya Paramparā – the transmission of spiritual knowledge from teacher to student. He is deeply honored to study with the current lineage holder of Ashtanga Yoga tradition. Since 2015 he travels every year to the source – the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India.
Kiril has been initiated in the Ashtanga Yoga practice by Kristina Karitinou -Ireland on the island of Crete. He felt that experience like coming home. Besides the regular study with Sharath Jois in Mysore, India, Kiril often travels to practice with KPJAYI Certified teacher KRANTI (Renato Libonati) in Tokyo, Japan to deepen his knowledge. Before Ashtanaga Yoga, Kiril has spent 12 years practicing traditional Chinese internal Gongfu. He trained Taijiquan in Beijing with the 19th
generation Grand Master Chen Yu. Kiril also traveled to Mount Wudang to study Taoist Meditation and Baguazhan with Master Yuan Xiu Gang.
