“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.”

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!
