I graduated from Boston University with a major in physical therapy, and have worked as a physical therapist for 36 years, earning a masters degree and doctorate along the way. I have a third degree black belt in Tang Soo Do, and I came to yoga 15 years ago, when my martial arts arts instructor recommended it. I completed my first 200 hour teacher training through Abhyasa Yoga with Karen Eisen at Solebury Club, and an additional 300 hour training through Yogadharma, also at Solebury Club. I am also a certified Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra instructor. I am proudest, though, of my role as mother of two adult children, Sarah and Lars.
Natalya was born in 1972, and immigrated to the States in 2002, from Kazakhstan. Happily married, Natalya and her husband raised three wonderful kids! She began practicing yoga back in 2005, and in 2017, she decided to take her yoga journey further.
Natalya graduated with a Certificate of Completion from Key Yoga in 2018. Studying and practicing yoga has helped her find her purpose in life helping her find her soul’s signature. She believe’s that taking care of other people is her Dharma.
I was initially drawn to Yoga after sustaining injuries brought on while training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I began studies of Ashtanga Yoga in attempt to heal; learning how to piece the sequence together while coordinating breath & movement. After discovering its deep healing potential I realized I needed to spread the knowledge of this beautiful system, and so I have since completed my 200 & 300 hour Anatomy of Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in 2016 & 2018 respectively.
Yoga is a tool that can shift your mind out of cyclic thought patterns and project one onto a path which facilitates healing and spiritual growth. There are many modalities of Yoga available and they all come with their unique offering. Ashtanga resonates with me at a very personal level; I believe it is a practice you can have for life, inside or out of the studio. Its rewards can be experienced by every body and can touch every soul. My philosophy, show up at the top of your mat, express the power of your breath and practice from your heart!
