Anton was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1971, during a time when the study and practice of yoga was prohibited in the former Soviet Union. However, Anton’s interest was so strong to learn this ancient science that at the tender age of 15 years he started to secretly teach himself. Eventually, his pursuit led him to be trained and initiated by various masters in different parts of the world, where he learned the secrets of Hatha yoga, Raja yoga, Kundalini yoga, Tantra yoga, as well as Ayurveda and Vipassana meditation technique.
