Meet Armen

A passionate traveler, practitioner, learner and teacher of the practice.

Armen’s intention with each class is to guide an intelligent, well-informed, and safely sequenced, alignment based session. His teaching is inspired by the diverse teachers he has practiced with since 2002. With a deep love and passion to learn about the yoga practice and philosophy, he has resonated most with Iyengar teachers or those who are inspired by the teachings of BKS Iyengar. After years of practicing vinyasa, he recognized the need to deepen his knowledge of anatomy as it relates to postures.  The style of yoga has an emphasis on detail, precision and asana alignment and pranayama, breath control. Upon receiving his 200 hour RYT in 2015, he spent 30 days in Nepal at a Buddhist monastery on a silent retreat to deepen his meditation practice. Mindfulness practice is an important component he delivers in each class. Since 2015, he has continued to take part in intensives with senior teachers including Manouso Manos, Carrie Owerko, and Maty Ezraty. Armen co-founded a yoga and meditation initiative, Stega: A Perfect Union, which was piloted in Armenia. The project was aimed at introducing self-care, wellness and mindfulness practices to activists and social change makers. Working towards his 300 hour at Wanderlust, he most recently completed a 75 hour module with Schuyler Grant. Armen is a previous high school philosophy and history teacher and the importance he places on the learning process and scaffolding yoga asana safely for students, both beginners and seasoned alike, is what he considers of utmost importance.
