After Yulia's 2-hour mini-retreat, I feel invigorated and peaceful.

Taking the time to completely unwind and go deep, this lasts for more than a few days. It allows me to re-engage with a clear mind and body. The massage balls were amazing for loosening build up tension. I feel excited and joyful about even the stressful elements of my life.

After Blissful Rejuvenation Secrets retreat I feel a deep sense of calm and peace.

I enjoyed the waves of energy coursing through my body during yoga nidra. I liked the connection of hearing everyone’s name and intentions. I loved journaling as an open channel. After Blissful Rejuvenation Secrets retreat I feel a deep sense of calm and peace. I am an open channel of divine energy. It will help me remember who I am meant to be, that divine guidance is my birthright.

During relaxation, I was able to feel where I was holding that pain, to better accept it in order to release it.

I needed a calm space where I could leave my worries behind. That is exactly what I found. After Blissful Rejuvenation Secrets retreat I feel at peace. To my first, I came late and unprepared because my life is, well, too busy. As soon as I laid out my mat (the only item I managed to bring with me), I tuned into the atmosphere of the space Yulia created. My heart slowed its racing. I was in a place of intense psychic pain. During relaxation, I was able to feel where I was holding that pain, to better accept it in order to release it. I left able to release with tears that moved through me gently instead of storming my body and creating more hurt. It was just what I needed. I've discovered that every session with Yulia, no matter the subject, is always just what I need. It's enriching.

Kindness and mindful healing permeates to all who attend Yulia's workshops, classes or one on one interactions.

With my first few interactions with Yulia I was aware that I was in the presence of someone who ‘sparkled’, from the inside out. This sparkle is a very special gift that she possesses, gently wrapped in kindness and mindful healing, that permeates to all who attend her workshops, classes or one on one interactions.

I feel so nourished by this space and time.

I began taking yoga classes with Yulia at her Gentle Heart Yoga Studio six months ago. The first series I attended was a profound experience in exploring and developing intimate relationship with the goddess in her many forms. Yulia facilitated beautiful visual meditations, opportunities for embodied movement, gentle yet powerful yoga practice, and safe supportive sharing space. I am so thankful to have this sacred space with women to come to each week. During each session we travel deeply into the heart and essence of who we are and set intentions to truly relax into our divinity. I have attended many, many yoga classes over the last 20 years and can genuinely say that these classes are my all-time favorite. It is so important, yet so easy to forget, to take time for self-care in our busy lives. I am grateful that I listened to my heart and said "yes!" I really enjoyed the free movement within the yoga circle. Also the meditations and focused intentions were among my favorite aspects. I feel so nourished by this space and time. So free to explore the innermost depths of myself and my beingness. It has been a safe and cherished moment each week.

Before the retreat I felt intense tightness in my neck, back and throat. After the retreat I felt relaxed and loved.

I loved everything! The parts that touched my heart most were the beginning when you spoke of the higher self and Yoga Nidra. I can now stop holding tension in my body and begin to release the illnesses that I carry. I can now stop holding myself back. I look forward to using the yoga balls at home and chanting.

I enjoyed the most being with women and sharing, getting to move and being able to release pain, emotional concerns.

Yulia is a very talented yoga facilitator who easily brings women to explore their core issues and heal. During 8-week Women’s Yoga Series I enjoyed the most being with women and sharing, getting to move and being able to release pain, emotional concerns. I liked the spontaneous dance, sharing and guided meditations most. It helped me incorporate self-care into my day.
