New York native and previous Florida resident, Talya and her husband returned to Orlando to pursue his career in Family Medicine. Talya is a Yoga Alliance 200-hour Registered Power Yoga Instructor (RYT 200), graduate of the Evansville Yoga University, trained and certified by the Baptiste Institute—the recognized leader of power vinyasa methodology. Talya is an Integrative Health and Wellness Coach, and owner of Progressive Trans4mation. She works with her clients to help make gradual lifestyle changes and to choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. Talya enjoys guiding her clients on a journey towards a healthier, more balanced life and helps you to learn to listen to your body and what it craves. When she is not working or practicing yoga, Talya likes to cook, listen to music, stay active, be in the outdoors, and travel the world.
Talya teaches Baptiste based Power Vinyasa Yoga, a heart-pumping Vinyasa flow that connects breath, mind, and movement to help lengthen and strengthen towards a physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation. Baptiste Methodology™ “uses physical practice, meditative focus, and active inquiry to help students reclaim their full physical and mental potential—to help students awaken passion, create authenticity, confidence, and new possibilities in their life and practice.” Drawing from Talya’s skills to help her coaching clients take small steps towards a progressive transformation, she loves seeing her yogis gradually transform their practice. Her motto is “one day at a time, one step at a time.”
How Yoga Serves Talya
Talya has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. She originally started her yoga practice as a way to stay in shape and tone, but the Baptiste certification made her realize that yoga goes beyond the physical benefits. Yoga is a peaceful, grounding outlet for Talya and provides new opportunities for growth every day. Baptiste Yoga has taught her to become more fully present in her practice, reduce self-criticism, and provided her the opportunity to exercise not just her body, but also her heart and her mind.
Words of Wisdom for Students
“When you change your focus from limitations to boundless possibilities, from doubt and fear to love and confidence, you open your world in entirely new ways. You stop worrying about fixing what’s wrong with you and start living from all that’s right within you.”
– Baron Baptiste, Journey Into Power
