Nataliya has helped me start and build a therapeutic yoga practice.   After having twins in my early forties, it was time for me to get back into shape.   My hips and knees had been really sore; I limped when I walked.  Nataliya sent me back to my doctor to get a proper diagnosis, and after some private sessions with her, I learned how to modify the yoga poses so that they work better for me.   As a result, my posture has improved; my knees and hips no longer ache like they did before I started my training; and I have my very own exercise regime!  Nataliya is very knowledgeable and patient.  I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to strengthen his or her body through the ancient practice of yoga; she is amazing!

“It is my great pleasure to recommend Nataliya. I attended Nataliya’s Holistic Nutrition classes and I received 6 weekly individual counseling sessions with her on Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle because my health goals were to learn how to lose weight and get fit. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made for my health.
During the course instruction I received nutritional education and gained self-awareness about the foods I was eating and how they affect my health. Simple strategies such as how to read nutrition labels on packaged foods, how to select “lean” proteins and “clean” fats, how to use more herbs and spices to add nutritional value to the foods I am eating,  as well as many delicious recipes for me to try helped me to demystify today’s complex food choices.
I also appreciated Nataliya’s individual consultations and her doable suggestions on improving some of my current eating patterns and habits. This process helped me make good nutritional choices to stock my cupboards and have healthy nutritious foods available for every meal of the day.
Another aspect of our work together that I found fun and engaging was the challenge of shopping fresh and local. A friend of mine who was also taking Nataliya’s class joined me for weekly shopping trips to our local farmers’ market. We also went on many fun excursions to San Francisco’s Rainbow Grocery where most of the food has already been qualified as nutritional and/or certified organic. What fun! This has forever changed the boring routine of grocery shopping and sparked my curiosity to find and consume nutritionally sound food.
Nataliya’s lifestyle embraces her passion for whole body transformation and health. She is a great communicator and teacher. I highly regard her input and consider her an encouraging role model for living a healthy well-nourished life. I would recommend her classes and her individual counseling sessions to anyone seeking to make changes towards better health. Sincerely, Wanda B.”

“I always been very conscious about my diet and I thought that I was on the right path until I received a Nutrition Support from Nataliya. I attended Nataliya’s Holistic Nutrition classes and in addition I received 6 weekly individual counseling sessions with her on Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle. Nataliya demonstrated to me her abundant knowledge on how to get me on the right path to good nutrition and conveyed it in a way that made me excited about making changes for the better.
I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn how to eat healthier, feel better or has symptoms or health issues which are not being solved by conventional practitioners or to anyone who would like to improve the quality of their life.
Nataliya has introduced me to a new way of eating for health, the information she shares is very valuable and empowering. As a result of my new eating for health habits, I noticed my concentration improved as well as my physical stamina. Before I met Nataliya, I always felt hungry even if I ate something just a few minutes earlier. As a result of coming to Nataliya’s classes and having individual consultations with her,  I learned how I can feel satiated and nourished and my cravings have disappeared. I gained more energy and the elasticity of my skin improved.”

“When I first Nataliya at her yoga class 5 years ago, it didn’t take me long to figure out that she was an instructor with a solid knowledge of yoga.  She taught in a way that gave confidence to beginners and encouragement the more advanced students.  After a while my then 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with Scoliosis and I consulted Nataliya.  She explained that by increasing abdominal and back strength and improving posture she could reduce the side effects of her spine curvature.  Nataliya then agreed to show my daughter how to achieve these remarkable results by teaching her individualized routines with a series of different yoga sequences focusing on working with the postures therapeutically.  My daughter is still practicing on her own and continues to benefit from these yoga sequences that help her keep her Scoliosis at check.
Taking Nataliya’s group classes for the past several years has been great as she always provides different options for each pose.  I have been able to build strength, obtain a great deal of insight into my own body as well as ability to unwind both my mind and body. I highly recommend Nataliya’s private and group classes for beginners as well as intermediate practitioners of yoga.”
