Hello and welcome! My name is Nataliya. I’m a Holistic Nutrition Consultant, Health and Wellness Coach, and Yoga teacher.
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 the perceived quality of life (USDHHS, n.d.)
Together, we can develop personalized self-care programs that can help to lose some unwanted weight, optimize metabolism and digestion, reduce stress, and improve the energy levels and sleep.
Let’s discuss the options that can help you to reach the state of better or optimal health. I educate my clients about the whole, seasonal, organic foods, and health-supporting lifestyle. I teach individuals how they can adapt the meal plans, recipes, or lifestyle routines to their preferences in tastes, textures, flavors, and other personal factors.
The focus of my work is general wellbeing, weight loss, optimal digestion, nutrient absorption, and metabolism. I like the challenge of working with different dietary and lifestyle preferences and help my clients to customize their choices to get the most nutritional value and the best outcomes.
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.

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.
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 certified in Yoga for Scoliosis by Elise B. Miller, a Senior Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.
