Mariya

Stretch.com Coach

Hi everyone. My name is Mariya and I’m from Almaty, Kazakhstan.

I discovered stretching in 2017 after going to my first stretching class. I wanted to work on my flexibility and pursue a lifetime dream of achieving my splits.

After a few years, I realised that I want to help people make their dreams come true and help them to be more flexible and feel more freedom in their movements.

I teach both fitness classes and stretching techniques.

Certifications:

Group and personal stretching at International Fitnesspro School

 

Viktoria

Stretch.com Coach

Hey everyone! My name is Viktoria and I’m from Russia.
My initial education is law. I started my sports journey over 8 years ago through dance and stretching. I fell in love with the industry and decided to pursue my certifications in group and personal training.
In time, I also discovered my love for pole acrobatic sport and started teaching pole sport, exotic pole dance, high heel dance, stretching, fitness, and bodybuilding.
Sports is everything to me. I love teaching and helping people become healthier and happier versions of themselves.
My favorite sports to teach are pole, dance, stretching, and fat burning classes. My classes aren’t easy but I guarantee you that after training with me, you’ll achieve goals you never thought you could.

About:
Ever since I was a kid, I was into sports; basketball, table tennis, throwball, netball, volleyball, and football. However, during my undergraduate studies (BSc. Accounting and Finance), my love for football grew. I became the vice captain and captain of my varsity football team in my last two years. I was awarded ‘Best Sportswoman’ by my peers.

 

I continued playing football upon graduating with Karachi United Football Club. I was fortunate to take part in our National Women Football Tournament in 2018. In Dubai, I’ve been playing with Predators FC and Smart FC.

 

While working in a high stress corporate job, I sought out yoga as a way to unwind and be more active. It was during this time that I connected deeply with the practice of yoga. As a person who thrives at multitasking and keeping myself busy, yoga guided me on how to honor my body, energy, and time. It inspired me to detach from the world intermittently and focus on myself.

 

Having experienced the benefits of yoga first hand, I decided to embark on a new journey as a yoga teacher. Through my own years of practice and education, I believe yoga can be for everyone. Irrespective of what your end goal is; gaining flexibility, improving fitness, or challenging yourself mentally and physically, yoga is a great boost to anyone’s exercise regimen.

 

As a yoga teacher, my aim is to create a safe and nurturing space for my students, be it in a group class or a personal class. I focus on assisting my students to develop a connection between their breath, body and mind, in order for them to deepen their practice.

 

In my yoga classes, I lead with the practice of meditation and pranayama. All the asanas I teach come with their modifications for all types of students. My goal is to enable my students to be confident in their bodies and help them to reach their goals.

 

My specialty is strength and flexibility, while focusing on alignment of the body for various yoga poses. My classes will have sequences that work with dynamic and passive stretching to increase flexibility.

About Me:
I used to have asthma when I was a kid. But I got to overcome it through mountain climbing, hiking, and outdoor cycling. Fitness activities did me good with improving my endurance and making my lungs feel better, which eventually, caused my asthma to completely go away. It lead me to take a healthier path in life.

I became a personal trainer in 2018, working with clients to improve their strength, posture, weight management, balance, and flexibility, which helped them achieve confidence, happiness, and good quality of life.

I love teaching both in groups and one on one setting. I like to keep it fun, challenging, and exciting, because I believe that training, whether it’s a hardcore workout or a more relaxed stretching, should be enjoyable for everyone.

The best part about my job is being able to aid in the versatililty that fitness and training can bring into people’s lives, because seeing each individual’s transformations for the better good is always pure bliss!
