Andrey Lappa is one of the most influential yoga masters to have emerged from the post-Soviet era. Originally from Ukraine, Andrey has been practicing yoga for well over 30 years, and teaching professionally since 1988. He has studied with many well-known yoga teachers throughout the East including BKS Iyengar and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, but also with many teachers who prefer to remain out of secular life. It is from his vast experience of travels and yoga studies that have spanned India, Nepal, Tibet, Mongolia and other Eastern Republics that Andrey developed the system called “Universal Yoga ” (trademark). Andrey is a recognized Lama (teacher) in the Karma Kagyu lineage, the president of the Kiev Yoga Federation, the author of “Yoga: Tradition of Unification”, and the author of many posters, DVDs and software programs designed to transmit the yogic concepts of control, balance, creativity, karmic freedom and ultimate liberation for all practitioners of this ancient science.
