About Me& my commitment to yoga practice
Who is Nataliya?
I moved to Colorado from Ukraine. I call Colorado Springs my home. My introduction to yoga started with the challenge of focusing on a well balanced life, self-care, and a mindful lifestyle. It took a rigorous hatha practice to give me a sense of ownership over my body and emotions that helped establish a practice. I pursued and received my certification in order to share the gift of yoga with others. I am offering a vinyasa class for those at basic and intermediate levels, hatha-style, and classes for new mothers to ease into the new season of their lives with babies.

values & beliefs
I believe that personal practice is the foundation of teaching – walking the talk, so to speak. In other words, I believe that it is hard to explain something that you have not experienced yourself. I also strongly believe that there is no ‘point of arrival’ – yoga practice is ever-evolving, as experience is garnered.
I believe that there is no place for competition in yoga – for myself as a teacher, for other teachers in this space, and for you as students. Compassion for others and yourself is the driving force behind this belief – the more we become attuned to ourselves the more freedom we can allow ourselves.
I choose to be aware of other practices available in our community to be a resource to my students. I am always happy to share available workshops and teacher’s classes to support your intentions in practice.
