Hi, my name is Vlad Moskovski. I was born in Russia, lived in Israel, and grew up in the US in New Jersey before moving to Berkeley, California where I teach all aspects of yoga to homeless, youth, adults, and seniors. To view my personal website with a list of my weekly classes check out Yoga Muse.
I have had an interest in meditation and yoga for almost as long as I can remember. As a young child of 6 or 7, I remember having visions of a half nude skinny Indian man sitting on the beach in full lotus. This yogi, would frequently dive under water in search of pearls (I don’t know why pearls, but this is what I saw) and would be submerged for minutes at a time. I viewed yogis as exceptionally gifted and mystical people.
As an adult, I had the grace to discover Integral Yoga through an amazing spiritual being named Prema Spodzial. She was the kind of teacher that you could feel entering the room, even if she was 30 feet away from you. She radiated peace, joy, and love. I have studied with many amazing teachers and spent six intense months under the guidance of a Zen master, and yet my greatest teachers are the ancient masters of Yoga and Taoism through the Patanjali Yoga Sutras and the Tao Te Ching.
A Short Vignette About Me
Meditation is a skills as well as a spiritual practice. Frequent and extended practice of this skill can bring profound clarity, inner peace, and groundedness. While our society is highly adapt at manipulating the material and our scientific understanding of the world has brought us wonderful technology, our understanding of the human potential and the mind is rudimentary. The mind is the greatest unexplored frontier.
My first book, titled Road To Involution explores this frontier and offers insights and techniques to bring meditation into one’s daily life. The book is available through Amazon.com as a paper back or in electronic form for the kindle.
Projects I am involved with:
Compassionate Leaders: A Bay Area organization I founded in 2013 with the mission to ignite a new generation of compassionate teens to become change- makers to create a more just and sustainable world through local socially conscious community projects.
