A PhD and an E-RYT, Tatyana Souza received her 200hr certification in 2011 from Back Bay Yoga in Boston and her 500hr certification in 2019 from the Wanderlust Studio in Hollywood. Inspired by the yoga training and by her two boys, Tatyana left her career in the pharmaceutical industry as an Immunologist to co-found Coolidge Yoga in Brookline and in the Boston South End.
A dreamer and believer in the "good", Tatyana wanted to lead by example for her little boys. She believes that yoga is the catalyst for personal and global change and hopes to make an impact in her community and the world by creating a warm, sacred space where yoga students can move, connect, and cultivate much needed stillness and breath in their daily life.
Tatyana's teaching is currently inspired by Maybelle Rowntree, Schuyler Grant, Tias Little, Noah Maze and Annie Carpenter. She gracefully weaves together creative sequencing with well informed alignment cues to facilitate a fluid yet safe experience focusing both on strength and movement. She uses compassionate, intuitive, as well as, alignment-focused touch to allow students to feel supported, safe and sacred in their asana practice and in their bodies.
