I would like to thank the project initiators for organizing the online-marathon ‘Five days with the best Iyengar yoga teachers in Russia’, the yoga teachers for sharing their expertise and knowledge and all the participants! You do a great thing that is important and needed to all of us.
I am a yoga teacher and live in Bryansk; however, I’ve got a feeling as if I actually attended a live seminar! Therefore, I would like to say that because of such events I live life to the fullest even during the period of self-isolation and social distancing!

I was glad to see the familiar faces of my teachers of the studio ‘YogiHall’! I have three sons, and one of them is just six months old. Currently, I can only dream of practicing yoga every day, even if for thirty minutes! I tried to do yoga by watching videos on YouTube; however, I cannot compare them with the online marathon I took part in. Only my teachers Tatyana Radost and Svetlana Nekrasova can awake me and make my body move as I need. I have used to their voices, class teaching methods even before the period of self-isolation; in fact, I see and feel that my body tends to respond when I participate in their online classes. And a special thank you for props that was provided by the studio for the time of online-marathon.

I would like to say thank you to the project initiators and instructors for choosing interesting and interrelated topics for the classes: everything was very logical, well-defined and structured. It seemed like we have already heard that was said, and in general, it was learnt before. However, I have discovered for myself some important aspects, and appreciated that simplicity, accessibility, sincerity and generosity with what the teachers shared their knowledge with us. Moreover, I enjoyed to practice yoga every day during the marathon I participated in. Thank you for the idea and organization!

Thank you to the event planners and to the author who had the idea of holding the event in the form of a marathon that kept us tremendously concentrated, yet calm! Every day there was a new interesting topic, and a new teacher! Moreover, it was a very suitable topics for women! I wanted to practice yoga, and at the same time, to note absolutely everything, not missing a thing. Many thanks to the teachers for their sincerity, clear explanation, professionalism and open attitude to all the participant of the marathon. They are all beautiful women with a good sense of humor, self-irony and openness! Yoga unites people and in fact, it does.
