Passionate About Sharing the Sound
I was born in Moscow (Russia) and immigrated to the US at the age of 22. My first job as a co-principal cello player with the symphony orchestra took me to Spain. In Spain, I experienced my first calling to practice Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
Upon returning to the US in 1998, I was fortunate to meet my spiritual teacher, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati. Under the guidance of my Guru, I was initiated into Kundalini Yoga, Chakra Meditations and advanced Pranayama (breathing yogic technique) practices. I was invited to play the cello to accompany Kirtan (devotional singing) during various workshops Ma Jaya was offering at the time.
My journey brought me to study with Derek O'Neill around 2010. Derek helped me cope with the biggest loss of my life – the passing of my beloved Guru Ma Jaya in 2012. Derek's teachings help me stay aware and positive while facing everything life presents in any given moment.
I have been performing and teaching cello for over 20 years and am the author of a unique strings method book. I like to create very personal experiences for each student in my classes, which usually attract over 300 students
to my strings program every year.
I feel passionate about sharing the channeled healing sound in my workshops and in private channeled cello healing sessions.
