Private Sessions

The way I live and experience life has been wonderfully transformed into something quite amazing.

I can't put into words the transformation I've experienced through my work with Yulia. She is so wonderful - a beautiful spirit who has created a safe place for me to get in touch with my True Self, while releasing the things which have held me back from living the life I was meant to live.

When I signed up for classes with Yulia, I didn't even know what Yoga Nidra was! I had been diagnosed with an illness which greatly limits energy. I had loved doing yoga before, but I was suddenly unable to do even restorative yoga. When I read something describing Yoga Nidra as being almost like taking an amazing nap, I thought "Hey! I can do that!!"

What I didn't know is how powerful Yoga Nidra actually is! It's hard to explain, really. To me, it is like meditation multiplied by 100 (and I had always found meditation to be difficult).

But, the greatest thing is that Yulia has an amazing awareness regarding what a person needs individually. My sessions with Yulia are completely tailored to my life and what I need in order to evolve and heal and shine. Hers is definitely not a "one size fits all" approach.

There is no way to put into words how my work with Yulia has helped me. The best I can do is to say that the way I live and experience life has been wonderfully transformed into something quite amazing.

It has definitely been much more than a nap. In fact, it is more like waking up.

Before working with Yulia individually, I was struggling to discover who I was and my work with her gave me clarity of my life’s purpose and a direction in which to move forward.

The first time I experienced Yoga Nidra, I was going through a divorce and was very emotionally unstable. I lacked confidence and clarity of my life’s purpose and was trying to just make it through the divorce. After that first session, I felt a sense of calm and healing. It helped me shift my outlook from just surviving the divorce, to thriving in spite of it. The change was noticeable to those around me. My continued practice of Yoga Nidra has enhanced my regular meditation practice and continues to help me release trapped emotions and remove my self-limiting beliefs.

Before working with Yulia individually, I was struggling to discover who I was and my work with her gave me clarity of my life’s purpose and a direction in which to move forward. The journey has been difficult, but I always felt a tremendous amount of love and support from her both in and out of our sessions and it has definitely been worth it.

I made big changes in my work and have experienced true joy with designing a life I love.

Before I embarked on the one-on-one healing journey with Yulia, I was struggling with how I viewed my finances and being torn about making a big career decision. Anxiety was a very real part of my day. Sleep was sometimes elusive. Yulia helped me by realizing my irrational fears and seeing a pattern of behavior in my life.

There was a reoccurring theme of thoughts that weren't serving me well. She taught me to reduce anxiety by learning how to breathe through any situation. Yulia taught me exercises to improve my life instead of falling back into the old patterns of being a victim. I learned to deal with anger in a much more productive way.

I always left our sessions feeling better. My anxiety improved and I started sleeping really well. A calmness took over. I made big changes in my work and have experienced true joy with designing a life I love. Yulia has an incredible gift. She gave me the tools to heal myself from past trauma and to believe in myself. She is giving and kind. I am so grateful for this experience. Yulia has changed my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have gained a spiritual insight and trust in the act of moving towards what at first feels difficult or constraining.

Coming into yoga therapy, I had no idea what to expect. In my mind, I thought I'd be helped into some stretches and then guided to breath, but WOW there was so much more here. Not only did Yulia provide a space for the body, she also welcomed me to share some about my mind and emotional processing. I came to yoga therapy with some discomfort in my right hip due to a recent Hernia Surgery repair. And what I found out from our work together was just how much fear and tissue trauma was still left over from this surgery. Through yoga therapy, I witnessed that my intuition was still to move AWAY from the pain, but what my body needed was to remember and understand the sensations I had been avoiding. I now experience more freedom in my right hip, but even deeper I have gained a spiritual insight and trust in the act of moving towards what at first feels difficult or constraining. Yoga therapy is much more than a physical modality, it is a discipline that shows a body, a mind, a spirit to be patient, kind, and loving with itself even in the heart of challenge. Yulia's gentle and present guidance helped me to stay with AND move through waves of contraction and release. Highly recommended

After each session, I felt lighter, happier, re-energized and whole.

A few years ago, Yulia offered a sumptuous yoga retreat that I could not attend because of travel constraints. I expressed my desire to attend in the future when she replied with “What about connecting through Skype?” I leaped at the opportunity and remain engaged in online yoga therapy sessions from the comfort of my home 200 miles away. I began yoga therapy with Yulia because I had nagging hip pain, tight shoulders and some unprocessed grief and feelings of loss holding me back. Yulia facilitated the meditative techniques of yoga therapy using breathwork, postures and intentions that dissolved my aches and pains. The transformative process ultimately resulted in me embodying a renewed sense of aliveness and personal well-being that I carry into each day and everything I do now.

I discovered powerful, healthy resources within myself that were hidden within the unresolved trauma

I've had the immense pleasure of experiencing yoga therapy with Yulia, both in person and via Face Time. I didn't expect that our electronic sessions would be as powerful as those in person, but in fact they were! I had unhealthy habitual patterns of seeing myself and the world that needed attention and I felt drawn to yoga therapy to help shift these limitations, both physically and emotionally. Yulia was very skilled at making me feel safe...that all of myself was welcome to be revealed, even the "yucky" and uncomfortable aspects of myself I’d rather avoid looking at. Because Yulia's presence is peaceful, nurturing and totally nonjudgmental, I was able to enter into some very deep, painful places. With her guidance I discovered powerful, healthy resources within myself that were hidden within the unresolved trauma. Due to the transformational shifts I experienced while working with Yulia, I'm a much freer, more capable and joyful person. I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend Yulia for anyone who wants to reclaim their authentic power and expression. She's a gem.

Yulia offers a quiet, intimate, non-competitive space for strengthening one's core and building body awareness

Before joining Yulia’s Pilates for Healthy Back class I felt like a slug. I needed to strengthen my core before I start working on strength training the periphery. Since taking the class, I have noticed better posture; more energy to move; more body awareness in between classes. Yulia applauds everyone's successes as they become able to do exercises that were a seemingly impossible feat only a few weeks before.
