tatyana kochergina- Founder & Chief Happiness Officer
Tatyana Kochergina has studied all aspects of Hatha Yoga Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Anatomy, Doubles Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Practice Teaching with Gail Bentley Walsh of Yoga Mountain and Chair Yoga with Julia Hough of YTA.
Experienced in guiding people in athletic, therapeutic and creative movement, Tatyana’s vast knowledge of the human body is also drawn from the MELT method, which she learned from MELT creator Sue Hitzmann.
Tatyana has 15 years of experience as a corporate finance professional, which includes leading a team at Hunter Douglas for the last five years. She knows firsthand that being a mom of two and managing a full-time, fast-paced job is not an easy task. Determined to find a balance in her life and the lives of her employees, Tatyana’s search for the right approach led her to blend MELT, Yoga and art into her life.
Since 2010, Tatyana has been teaching Yoga part-time in studios, nursing homes and offices throughout NY and NJ. With her experience as both a corporate employee and Yoga instructor, she wholeheartedly understands the importance of teaching wellness at the workplace.
Tatyana’s mission is to help people find a balance that will work for them, at any age and any stage in their life, despite any challenges they may face today.
Whether working with social workers, adults with disabilities, teens, kids or adult students at any level, Tatyana’s teaching is always guided by love, compassion and a deep insight honed by many years of experience.
