My life journey took me to places I never imagined I would visit, yet alone live there! I left home at a tender age of 18 and since then lived in many places I now call home - Moscow (Russia), Auckland (New Zealand), Gold Coast (Australia). For nearly 20 years I worked in a corporate environment gathering the many skills, the knowledge and building a solid foundation for my family. I enjoyed a wealthy lifestyle, travelling, changing countries, making connections, raising kids... but it all came with its hefty price tag - constant pressure, emotional burnout, stress and exhaustion. The nagging feeling inside of me - “is that it?”, “there must be more to life!”, "if not now, then when?" grew. My early life experiences and compassionate nature were pushing me to do more. To share more. To become more.
So I did.
After having my second child I drastically changed the direction of my career towards holistic health and I never looked back. I completed double diploma course at Massage Schools of Queensland, Australia, in record time and while still breastfeeding my son. I recall when I approached the School Director to allow me to do both diplomas (Remedial Massage and Clinical Aromatherapy) at the same time, she said: "Tatiana, are you out of your mind? Nobody did it before and you have a new-born baby! How can you possibly do two completely different subjects at the same time?" She now tells other students it is doable and I feel proud to show others, and my kids, that commitment and determination are two very useful virtues which help you carve your path in life.
My interest in effective manual techniques and desire to serve my clients better grew and led me to completing many other courses, attending various trainings, masterclasses, running my own workshops and collaborating with other trainers. Ranging from studying life coaching and strategic intervention with Tony Robbins and Cloe Madanes at Robbins-Madanes Training Center (USA) to learning the art of aromatic kinesiology with Robbi Zeck (Australia), my hunger for knowledge led me to dive deeper into appreciation of intrinsic connection between mind, body and spirit. It felt only natural that one of such collaborations with Yakov Gershkovich, the trainer in Sculptural Face Lifting technique, was pivotal in my career and took me on whirlwind trip around the world helping, translating, organising and assisting Yakov during his live trainings and later managing and supervising online students. That two year long collaboration has further enhanced my skills and saw me grew as a therapist and an educator.
Today I feel very privileged to be able to touch lives and share my expertise with students who come to the training. I believe in the power and intelligence of the heart, authentic connections, loving kindness, deep presence and creation of beauty through focused intention and mindfulness. I love connecting people to their own light, see them flourishing and enjoying a wholehearted way of living, doing business and fostering relationships.
