Michael Burlacu

B.Sc., Yoga Siromani, RYT  – Yoga Teacher Diploma from Vedanta Forest Yoga Academy in Madurai, India

 

Michael started his Yoga journey in Romania in the early 1980’s, by following the teachings of Master N.C. Tufoi. Shortly after that, Master Tufoi was forced to leave the country.

 

Michael continued his Yoga journey by studying Yoga philosophy. In 1993, he met Master Jayaramy Readdy, a well-known Indian guru in Eastern Europe, and continued his Yoga practice with Raja Yoga.

 

In 2004, he approached the Iyengar style and, in 2005, expanded his understanding of Yoga by starting to practice the Sivananda style.

 

Since 1993, he has had the opportunity to practice and teach Yoga in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Caribbean.

 

His engineering background and many years of experience in Research, Project Management and Quality have helped him incorporate the scientific method into the practice and teaching of Yoga, making this Eastern discipline more accessible to the Western student.

 

His collaboration with Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinics has given him the chance to better understand human anatomy and physiology.

 

Michael considers Yoga to be the easiest path to understand oneself and the Universe.
