My intention is to put all of my knowledge, experience, gifts, love and passion to help YOU live a happy, healthy and inspired life. That is my higher purpose and my contribution to this world.
Let me introduce myself. I grew up in a small village in the middle of wild steppes of Kazakhstan, a Central Asian country that was once a part of the Soviet Union and before that, a great Ottoman Empire as well as the home of the fierce and free Mongols.
I came to the United States of America, at age 16, alone to pursue my dreams of studying in America. I barely spoke English. I knew no one. AND I was determined to grow, evolve and contribute.
In 2008, I started my business, yogaOne Studios, together with my best friend and co-creator, my husband Roger. Together we grew yogaOne to a community of 7 yoga studios, One Love Juice Bar, Blue Sky Retreat Center in Taos, New Mexico.
We sold our business in 2017. We sold our house and got rid of all of our belongings and head out on #RippysGoneWild World Travels on July 7, 2018. We grabbed our kids, rented an RV and followed our passion for traveling and, most importantly, creating a deep soul-connection with each other and our 2 amazing daughters and our fluffy Goldendoodle Dante.
I have trained thousands of people through personal growth and yoga. I have coached hundreds of people one-on-one. I have created space for people to heal, evolve and step into living a happy and fulfilled life.
I am a Serial Entrepreneur, Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, Wife, Mom and World Traveler.
