Anfisa Maksimyuk

Yoga Instructor & Operations Staff

It’s about service. Being in service to her students – students who want to connect with their bodies and souls through yoga. Anfisa’s Hatha yoga classes are infused with movements and techniques to build strength, flexibility, coordination and joint mobility. 

Anfisa’s own yoga journey began with her 2012 move from St. Petersburg, Russia to the United States. She began her practice by immersing herself in studying the spiritual aspects of yoga – in particular philosophy and meditation. When she added asana there was an immediate connection that felt, according to Anfisa, like “love at first sight.” 

Anfisa completed her 200-hour teacher training at Samyama Yoga Center. She has also completed her Level 1 Yoga Tune Up certification. She continues to grow in her yoga practice with her principle teachers Anirudh Shastri, John Berg and Louis Jackson. Alika Medeiros is a mentor with whom Anfisa practices calisthenics, animal flow and breathing exercises.
