Testimonials

The support I have received from Dr. Oksana’s and Natalya’s commitment to the care of their clients’ physical and emotional health as well as well-being is exceptional. They have taught me how to navigate through life’s challenges with dignity and grace. I am so grateful to be on this spiritual journey with them. My overall journey with the Best Yourself Educations/ Programs is remarkable!
- Maria Moor

Natalya and Oksana have shown me how by giving the best to myself, I grow in all areas. Like most women, I spent years running on caffeine and borderline fatigue. Natalya’s wellness insight and Kundalini yoga teaching made me see the power in the breath for relaxation, renewal and rest. Natalya’s combined nursing background and her vast knowledge of holistic healing is unmatched. Her calm nature is soothing and has made my yoga practice and life approach one of ease and self-compassion.
- Kristianne Stewart

Fortunately I discovered Natalya’s Kundalini classes. Natalya’s calming voice, gentle and inviting nature as well as her wisdom of tapping into blocked energy fields has brought me much inner peace and strength and helped dissipate panic and frustration these past few months. Going to Kundalini classes brought something that was really missing in my life.
- Suzanne Woods

I have been so grateful for the opportunity to participate in educational lectures, courses, events with Natalya and Oksana. I learned more about mind-body-spirit connection and the strategies that can be implemented to promote wellness and prevent disease.
- Nicole Levis

What can I say about Kundalini yoga, it will change your life. It is not for everyone, but if you let go there is nothing like it. Take this from a gym nerd, that has pushed himself in varied ways throughout his life. A prism of reflection embodies Natalya’s class. You will be physically challenged through each kriya and see the results in the physical body. Mentally challenged in seeing the world through a different lens, mantras will envelope your senses and bring your awareness to new heights. An esoteric experience for the mind, body and soul. Natalya’s way of teaching is not cookie cutter. She brings her authentic self each and every class. When you are there, you are her world. She will teach you, to see yourself as whole, a transformational leader. She will always impart knowledge and allow those who enter to be themselves – take that knowledge and help as they wish. Don’t take her wisdom, love or energy for granted.
- Nathan Davila
