YOGA BACKGROUND.jpg

Background

My name is Krysto. I started practicing yoga in 1991, later trained as a yoga Teacher specialising in Gita Style Yoga and have taught continuously since.

Over the last 20 years  I have successfully completed several post graduate courses, and many of the skills  knowledge and qualifications attained you will find in the private services of this website.

 

Over  the years I have explored many Yoga “styles”  – some authentic, others quite questionable.

I have learnt to be open minded and enjoy the many aspects of yoga, the wisdom teachings encompassing the Philosophy of Yoga, as well as the physical practices. Teaching yoga is both a joy and an honour. It is truly humbling to observe a deep shift within students, a shift which reignites them, enabling them to live their lives more fully and joyfully. My wish is to pass the gifts of yoga to others, gifts which are the knowledge and the tools to set us free for the rest of this life.

It is not uncommon to lose our vision or sense of purpose in life. Some of us may choose a new path to travel. These are the times we need guidance and tools to simplify the challenges. We all need to create a road map in our mind to regain that sense of purpose or change course with confidence. It will be my pleasure to draw that map with you, and put you in the drivers seat for the rest of your life.

For two decades I have been teaching and mentoring, general public and Teachers. Having the role of a Senior Co-coordinator at an International Yoga School instructing both, Undergraduates and Post Graduate Teachers is one of my greatest rewards.

I have my own private yoga studio in Melbourne Australia where I teach individuals.  Some people have challenged bodies and we work together with therapy and movement. I also work with people that are very flexible such as ballet dancers, and all kinds of athletes and people who are looking for something other than the physical.  I teach mostly private classes but I do have some group classes for the general public. I am also teaching internet classes to all sorts of people for all kinds or reasons.

 

Whilst yoga is for everyone, the classes I teach offer you the total yoga experience that is personal and private. My aim is to share the insights so you will live more lightly, happily and purposefully.

I have also taught in a variety of organisations in Australia including:

Yoga Centers & Fitness Centers

Private Education System

St. Vincent Hospital

Turning Point (drug & alcohol center)

Banking and Finance Organizations

PROFESSIONAL CAREERS  (OTHER THAN YOGA)

Bachelor of Economics,  La Trobe University

Graduate Certificate Engineering (Manufacturing Management)

Advanced Diploma Garment Technology, Quality and prototypes, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

These qualification resulted in my specializing internationally in the design, engineering, manufacturing and selling of Menswear for fifteen years.

TELEVISION INDUSTRY

As Head of Department, Wardrobe, I read scripts created characters, consulted with personalities, selected garments, styled and dressed actors. Consequently I met numbers of creative people and celebrities.  At this time I became aware of the need by well  known people, for privacy and time away from the public gaze.

This need prompted me to facilitate private yoga retreats on private yachts in the Mediterranean, and other exclusive international locations. These retreats proved invaluable for professional people who are  seeking respite from stressful  jobs or the fatigue which accompanies fame and a high profile positions.

My personal Yoga practice and teaching was ongoing during this time.

PERSONAL QUALITIES

 I have  acquired  many skills and tools from these years  I believe the important ones include:

  • The ability to stay focused

  • Calm

  • Self respect

  • Respect for others

  • A happy outlook and sense of purpose

  • I welcome challenges

Whilst yoga is for everyone, Gay Men's Yoga offers the total yoga experience that are in personal and private. My aim is to share the insights so you will live more lightly, happily and purposefully.

THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL INVITATION  AND OPPORTUNITY.
