My calling to be a teacher has lead me to bring meditation and yoga into the lives of thousands of people from all walks of life. I work with adults, children, teens, elders, disabled, and homeless. My teaching focuses on connecting mind and body to bring about a complete transformation of the individual. I teach techniques and tools that can be integrated into daily life to calm the mind and improve physical well-being.

I believe that health, prosperity, and joy is our natural state. The practice of Meditation & Yoga simply remove the obstacles so that our true and authentic selves can come forth.

“Vlad is steeped in the knowledge of this ancient practice and communicates the message in a meaningful, clear way. He is also a gentle soul, quick to smile and finds humor in the laughable. I remain ever thankful for Vlad’s guidance!”

~Cristine D.


“Prior to becoming a novice counselor I have always advocated for self-care. I reached a point in my life filled with stress and realized I need to practice what I preached. I knew my spiritual journey would be the ultimate challenge and that I needed help to improve my meditation skills. The universe spoke and brought me to Vlad’s website. I can honestly say that becoming one of his meditation students has been a honor. Every session with Vlad teaches you how to take a personal journey where you find out more about yourself. Everyday I’m learning to love more, accept life, and give gratitude. Thank you for this remarkable experience and continued help.”

“My meetings with Vlad give me something calming and stabilizing to look forward to in my chaotic life.  Speaking with him is like speaking to a calmer, simpler, and more compassionate self, and reminds me of my own capacity to provide those same gifts to myself.”
