My story. Milestones.
I was a foil fencer for Russian National Team at 2012 Olympic Games in London. We lost against team Italy in the finals, and won a silver medal. I placed 10th in individual event. One of the most emotional moments of my life. I wish I knew yoga when I was a competitor.
I was honored to be the Ambassador for 2013 World University Games in my hometown Kazan, Russia. Together with famous Russian actors, artists and athletes, I carried the flag of the University Games at the opening ceremony.
Upon moving to United States I started coaching. I am currently an assistant coach for Buckie Leach, USA national team women’s foil coach. In 2015 I’ve started my own foil program at FenceFit Center
I did my 200-hour training at Sonic Yoga. When I started the training, my intention was to learn enough, so I can help athletes to recover from injuries through yoga practice. When I completed the 200-hour Teacher Training in May 2014, I had another plan: I wanted to teach yoga to young athletes to help them improve their athletic performance and prevent injuries.
In summer 2014 I've completed 50-hour Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Karma Kids Yoga
I like BeachBody, because they provide affordable training programs and meal plans, and their mission matches mine - promote health.
Here are Beachbody trainings I’ve completed:
PIYO Live - exercise program for developing strength and flexibility.
Insanity Live - exercise program for developing strength, endurance and agility, all important qualities for athletic performance.
I love social media! BurnThis is a community of people who value health and fitness. Join our #fitfam
In April 2013, together with my husband we opened our own fencing club, where we teach fencing using our own approach. It is a big experiment, and we are both passionate about it.
Yes, you guessed it right, we incorporate yoga into our training.
Fencing Yogi is my newest adventure. I hope, the project can grow and help fencers all over the world to avoid injuries and stay healthy throughout their lifetime.
