I believe that we learn by practice – whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. Practice counts. I’ve spent most of my life sweating, rolling, stretching, dancing - in some way simply connecting body and mind because this integration is where I feel empowered. I think I can help you feel this. When I discovered yoga in 2002, my practice became a therapeutic refuge from a lifetime of intense training and the injuries that inevitably come from a pursuit that puts performance first and wellness second. I still wouldn’t trade a minute of it. Inspired by the healing and self-reflection of yoga practice, I have found a way to teach dance and movement that is not only accessible to all kinds people but also delivers the same type of profound physical and spiritual therapy as yoga. 

I bring the balance of precision and joy from my dance background into yoga and I reveal to my movement students how precise movements are the gateway to freedom. Everyone should be able to discover how practice reveals the unique beauty of the way his or her body moves and the joy of that freedom. I'm honored to teach at LUX – it's a magical place to improve your body's vocabulary.

“I’m so inspired, my body feels great, I feel open & light. So many things have shifted. I so appreciate the way the course was put together, the support, the love, the compassion, the knowledge….. I’m blown away how much information I’ve received in two weeks. “ - Roxanne, Pasadena, CA

"I walked in naive, scared, and very uncertain, but hopeful to find something more. Not only did they [Ben & Tatiana] exceed all expectations... they’ve taken it to a deeper level to understand all of the different levels of yoga and all of the things that come with it. The people in this training became like Family. To Ben & Tati, it’s changed me and inspired me and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned." - Kristine, Calgary, Canada

"We came with no expectations….but it’s been amazing. Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine we would learn this much, both on a physical and personal level. The way my yoga has developed during these few weeks is amazing, I never thought that could happen. Ben & Tatiana are both beautiful individuals and good role models. It’s been an incredibly healing experience". - Lina & Daniel, Sweden

"In 15 days, not only has my practice become rock solid, but I’m connected to the most profound sense of purpose. I knew there would be no bullshit and there would be a strong foundation but they have above and beyond delivered. I can’t speak highly enough about this experience. It’s been truly life changing. What they’ve given us is our own personal power, and that’s a limitless fountain"  - Nilya, NYC

"I was nervous coming into this training and wasn't really sure what to expect. This was my very first YTT. I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing this experience was. I work in the healing arts, so am constantly surrounded by esoteric healers and have had many “healing” sessions and attended many "healing" retreats. Of my many years in the world of wellness, Ben & Tatiana are by far, without a doubt, the most profound healers I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing space with. Their ability to hold space for transformation and foster growth in each and every individual is incomparable. They are both awe inspiring. This has been a truly life changing two weeks and I can’t wait to share this gift that Ben & Tati have given us!" - Morgan, Miami, FL
