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 as Health Coach or Nutrition Consultant, 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 my early years. 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 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.
