1998 was the first year that yoga was introduced at this performance oriented conference.  I was also asked to teach a few classes to some of the participants. Many of the Russian students explained that prior to perestroika, their yoga experience was limited to basement classes. As an instructor, my main challenge was to help them trust their body and their breath, as they were so accustomed to performing and following orders.

Ultimately, it was a deeply satisfying experience.
