Iskra Volkhina

RYT-200, Therapeutic Yoga, Yoga for Scoliosis

From Russian origin, having lived and traveling to many countries, speaking Russian, Spanish and English, Iskra is a devoted Yoga practitioner who specializes in scoliosis therapy. And it is not a coincidence: When she was 6 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis, which
went progressive with time and reached severe stages. Over the course of 25 years she tried to improve her condition using many traditional and alternative methods. Some of them had no effect, some aggravated her condition, others were helpful but for a short time and required constant dependence on the method.

When her condition became critical with the only solution being a complicated surgical intervention, she asked for a miracle. It was then the Universe brought Yoga to her life. She felt the positive effect of Yoga from the first session and since then Yoga became her lifestyle. Finally with Yoga she could experience a life without pain.

Her practice is a mixture of different non-traditional therapeutic methods such as aromatherapy with essential oils, massages and herbalism, Ayurveda and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) basics all combined with yogic principles. Everything she uses in her practice and shares with her clients is not just theory, but knowledge taken from ancient scriptures and traditions and her personal experience.

  • Former Theater Actress
  • Studied linguistics of Spanish language
