A PhD and an E-RYT, Tatyana Souza received her 200hr certification in 2011 from Back Bay Yoga in Boston under Kate Greer, Nicole Clark and Lynn Begier. Inspired by the yoga training and by her two boys, Tatyana left her career in the pharmaceutical industry as an Immunologist to co-found Coolidge Yoga in Brookline and in the Boston South End.
A dreamer and believer in the "good", Tatyana wanted to lead by example for her little boys. She believes that yoga is the catalyst for personal and global change and hopes to make an impact in her community and the world by creating a warm, sacred space where yoga students can move, connect, and cultivate much needed stillness and breath in their daily life.
Tatyana's teaching is inspired by Maybelle Rowntree, Schuyler Grant, Tias Little and Annie Carpenter. She is currently pursuing her 500hr training at the Wanderlust studio in Hollywood. She gracefully weaves together creative sequencing with well informed alignment cues to facilitate a fluid yet safe experience focusing both on strength and movement. She uses compassionate, intuitive, as well as, alignment-focused touch to allow students to feel supported, safe and sacred in their asana practice and in their bodies.
This post-natal class focuses on helping new moms regain core strength and relieve, stretch, and strengthen tired arms, backs, and shoulders. All of this in a friendly, relaxed, and supportive environment.
This class is 60 minutes long and participants are encouraged to stay after to meet and chat with other new moms or dads and share their "war" stories.
We totally understand that babies have sporadic schedules. Please feel free to come into class late or leave at any point. Baby sleeping in a car seat by your mat while you practice? Absolutely fine, too! Please bring a soft towel or blanket for your baby along with a favorite toy. Dads, partners, and caregivers are also welcome.
