Tatyana Vinnikova is a skilled yoga teacher and a consummate
professional. She brings to her students the clarity and lightness of yoga's
ever complex world of poses, concepts, and other aspects. She teaches you how
by bringing yoga into your everyday life, you will start to live and deal with
life's problems in a calm, serene way. Every class I take with Tatyana I
learn something new and she is very much in tune to any physical injuries her
students have had or are dealing with at the present moment. She includes
alternate ways to ensure that certain poses can still be done if an injury
keeps you from performing the regular pose.
I recommend you attend one of Tatyana's classes; you will walk out of feeling
enlightened and will say to yourself, "can't wait to take another one of
I found Tatyana though Yelp about a year ago and it has been
such a wonderful experience since then. Tatyana is a very experienced Kripalu
trained Yoga teacher. Her class sizes are small and everyone gets individual
attention. Every week she will let us try different poses so that the workout
does not get monotonous. She pays attention to individual injuries and pains
and shows alternate ways to the poses. Everyone in her class can go at their
own pace but at the same time she encourages taking challenges. Students don't
feel intimidated. She is very kind and compassionate. I look forward to go her
class every week.
Tatyana Vinnikova Golden Light Studio is a
wonderful escape from the "real world" into the world of mind, body
and spirit. No matter what level of yoga, she will make you feel comfortable.
Her experience and love for her art of yoga is awe-inspiring. I have been a
long- time, devoted student for 10 years and look forward to many more.
I met Tatyana through a friend. She won
my appreciation from the first lesson. I did yoga for many years before I met
her, so I’m familiar with different teaching stiles. Tatyana is an amazing
teacher, who is constantly learning and perfecting her teaching. She is eager
to share her newly acquired knowledge with her students. Tatyana is a warm and
caring person. She is always ready to help, and never passes a judgments on
anyone. Tatyana offers her vast experience in helping people with their aches
and pains. She will recommend special stretches to ease a discomfort. I could
not ask for a better teacher.
I’ve practiced yoga with few yoga teachers but
Tatyana is by far most dedicated, spiritual and serious practitioner. This studio
provides a wonderful yogic workout experience that will challenge you
physically and spiritually. At the same time the environment is very friendly,
warm and inviting. Tatyana has a true gift for helping others to reach their
potential. I have noticed an amazing difference in my stretching since joining.
She is so kind and compassionate, taking each individual's restrictions into
Tatyana created a very special atmosphere in
her studio – I feel welcomed whenever I come and no matter how many classes I
skipped... I am not very strong or flexible, but I never feel judged or
self-conscious in her class. Tatyana is a very warm person; she cares deeply
about her students. Her relationship with us is not limited to just yoga
sessions. She organizes potluck lunches where everybody brings homemade healthy
food to share, people come to her workshops and guided meditation sessions.
Every year she takes a group of her students to Kripalu Yoga Center to
experience one of their programs. Last year I joined this group for the first
time – it was a very exciting trip. I feel myself part of the community of
people who love yoga, and I appreciate it very much.
If you wish to feel rejuvenated and refreshed AND still get
a good work out then come to Golden Light Yoga. A small studio, Tatyana
will provide personal attention; make sure you are doing postures correctly in
the most non-intimidating manner. Recently renovated, the studio has two
large bay windows, wood floors and a sunny glow from the warm butter yellow
walls and art. Treat yourself and come. This is how all yoga classes should be!
I started with Tatyana about one month ago, in a single
session. From there I joined a larger group. Tatyana is extremely dedicated and
has a true gift for helping others to reach their potential. I have noticed an
amazing difference in my stretching since joining. She is so kind and
compassionate, taking each individual's restrictions into consideration. It is
like a small "family" there; the environment is very friendly, warm
and inviting. I am a fan :)
Golden Light Yoga Studio is a nourishing sanctuary in

breath work and mindfulness unconditionally with her students. I
