I have been teaching Pilates, Yoga, Dance and Body  Sculpting for more than 10 years both in Russia and the United States. Upon arrival to Vancouver,  I started teaching at the YWCA, Arbutus club, West Point Gray Community Centre and several other clubs around the city. My mind-body  and dance classes attract many participants and my personal training sessions are at a high demand.

At YWCA, I offer personal Pilates and Yoga sessions as well as strength training with weights for people of all age-groups and fitness levels. Sessions with me will allow you to fill confident in your daily activities, manage stress, strengthen and tone the entire body, increase joints flexibility and improve low back health.
