Meet Anton!

I love finding out about our Members of the Week. This week it’s Anton Koukareko! Read all about him and leave him a comment below!

1. What was your favorite activity as a child?

I used to play soccer a lot after school hours. We played inside the hockey box, every day regardless of weather. There were several street lamps around, so we could stay till late hours or until our angry parents brought us back home. Bicycling was my passion too all the way till I suffered a concussion and broken arm at the age 12. And, of course, I was dancing every day which later became my profession.

2. What job did you have in high school?

I was a plumber two summers in high school.

3. What is your most embarrassing memory?

At my second semester at mechanics-mathematics faculty I failed my algebra exam. Around that time it was my first world dance championship in youth division in Paris, we did well, and I kind of took it too easy in preparations at university.The most embarrassing moment was to tell my grandmother the news. After that I promised myself to be well prepared for anything!

4. What is the best vacation you have ever taken?

Family trip to Nice, France. My son was at a really fun age to travel and we saw many things in the surrounding area. Including seeing the set-up for Formula One in Monte Carlo, riding the train to Cannes, and exploring Saint Paul de Vence.

5. What makes you laugh out loud?

Things that my son, Edmund, says and does sometimes. Also, I like to read Russian antidotes and they make me laugh a lot.

6. What accomplishments are you most proud of?

Definitely my biggest accomplishment is my family, I am very proud of my wife and two beautiful children- helping them discover who they are.

7. What advice would you give to your younger self?

I would tell myself to learn from the best, challenge myself and never give up.

8. What would you like people to remember about you?

I want them to remember that I am descent human being.

9. Why do you practice at Marin Power Yoga?

This is the studio I took my first yoga class at one and a half years ago and I am in love with knowledge, passion, instructions of my teachers, and, to my surprise, I realize how quickly onecan improve -I am very grateful to have MPY in my life!

Happy Birthday Marin Power Yoga!

Happy Birthday Marin Power Yoga!!! I “checked in” to our first class at 6:01am feeling very alone on May 15, 2013. Nobody showed up! 6 years later we have 96 classes this week, a great staff and vibrant community.

I appreciate all of our “learning opportunities” and recognize how many people contributed their time, skills and knowledge to us improving and growing into what we are today. We are here because you have come to classes, encouraged us to evolve, shared your lives with us and most importantly, we have witnessed you change.

Thank You!!!
