Hello and welcome! My name is Nataliya. I’m a Holistic Nutrition Consultant, Health and Wellness Coach, and Yoga teacher.
In my practice, I welcome anyone who is looking for lasting nutrition and lifestyle improvements in accordance with the latest science and research on nutrition, health, and wellness and/or their personal preferences.
A nutritious and balanced diet and a health-supporting lifestyle are linked to better overall health and wellbeing. The food and beverage choices, as well as the lifestyle preferences, can affect one’s weight, energy level, physical and mental performance, mood, memory, relationships, as well as perceived quality of life (USDHHS, n.d.)
Being in Best Health educates clients about the science-based health-supporting holistic nutrition and lifestyle options, which cover meals, snacks, nutrients, beverages, food preparation, exercise, environment, and relaxation.
Implementing health-supporting practices can help people feel and look better, improve digestion and energy, and lose undesired weight.
My focus is on whole-foods nutrition, weight loss, weight maintenance, seasonal food-based cleanses, and digestive and metabolic health.
Together, we can go for the shopping tours, explore the healthiest and most delicious options at the local stores, and discuss the food preparation and menu planning options for eating at home, at work, during travel, or at parties.
I enjoy researching the recent scientific updates about foods and nutrients and sharing them with my clients. In addition to working one-on-one, I’m available to teach Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle classes for the groups of people interested in healthy nutrition and lifestyle.
I offer holistic nutrition and wellness coaching as individual consultations or packages. We can work together on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.
Let me know your questions about foods, nutrients, lifestyle practices, or supplements. The initial discovery session is FREE of charge. Schedule your initial free consultation here

More about my past:
My first professional choice was allopathic medicine: I graduated from Pediatric Medical Academy in Saint-Petersburg, worked as a medical doctor in Moscow, and as a medical resident at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles, CA (I’m not licensed in the U.S. to practice medicine, and I do not treat, diagnose, cure, mitigate, or prevent any health issues). Holistic practices like Yoga, Nutrition, Health, and Wellness have been my passions and way of living since the early years and they eventually became my main occupation.
In 2012, I became a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant as a graduate of Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts, and in 2013 – Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition by NANP (National Association of Nutrition Professionals). Additionally, I studied Ayurvedic Wellness at the Kerala Ayurveda Academy, Natural Health at Trinity School, and completed several Yoga teacher trainings. In 2012 -2017, I taught group classes on nutrition and wellness at Bauman college and local communities. In 2017-2021, I was attending graduate school focusing on Holistic Nutrition and Health. I have been consulting individuals on nutrition and wellness since 2011.
My personal and professional Yoga practice is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. I customize yoga practice to make it gentle and approachable for the majority of people. I teach my clients how they can adapt Yoga practices of their choice to their individual abilities so they can consistently get the most comfortable and safe experience from their practice. I’m also certified by Elise B. Miller, a Senior Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.
