Two blogs in one day, Two full moons in one month

I just realized that I wrote two blogs on Thursday, not sure how it is possible. I guess I blogged early Wednesday, and then Wednesday night when I came home from the bachelorette party it was after midnight, so it shows as Thursday, and then I blogged Thursday morning.  I have been in a daze and a bubble this week, in the Doula world there is not much sleep, and I am on call, besides picking up a whole bunch of extra classes this week, and cannot tear myself away from the computer as I build my website and marketing campaign.

Have you heard the phrase, once in a blue moon?  Apparently this month there are two full moons, and its called a blue moon, which comes once in a while.  The next one will be January 2018!

Here is a Jewish perspective, it is about inner and spiritual healing,

Yesterday I met an amazing woman,, she told me some powerful things, if you ask me I will tell you.  I love to keep connecting with people with talents, gifts, and expertise in different areas of physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.  She gave me some amazing tips on how to keep on my path, but also recharge and release.


I am not a dogaholic or a big animal person, I appreciate them, but taking care of me is hard enough! This however is just plain truth about life, we can learn something from everyone and everything around us.

Grateful For My Gut,

Grateful For My Day Of Rest,

I Like To Move It Move It

One of my friends wrote on her timeline that today is Throwback Thursday, and there is Flashback Friday, so we should also have Way Back Wednesday, Timeless Tuesday, and Mistake Monday, along with Suddenly Sunday and Smashing Saturday, Thanks Heather!

I have always loved travel, when I was in high school, 16 turning 17, my school was offering a semester in Israel, and I knew at that age it would be the only place my parents would let me go.  It was really the trip of a lifetime, we saw and learned about the beautiful country and the history.  I never had a Bat Mitzva at 12, so I had one there, and it was the first time I got drunk, and they had to tell my parents!

Since then after high school I traveled with friends around the United States.  I was born in Moscow, USSR, I am a big city girl, and have been to Chicago, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Pheonix, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Boston, just to name a few.  One of my most memorable trips was with two childhood friends, we just graduated from high school, I was 18, and we came to Los Angeles, and lived on the Sunset Strip, it was 1991 and remnants of the long hair and rock scene were still the place to be before grunge and hip hop exploded on to the scene.

In college, I was majoring in Hospitality Management, and minoring in International Relations, and I was part of the Honors College, which had a semester in Prague, back then it was still Czechoslovakia.  I was 21, had saved up money from working at various jobs, I have consistently had a job since I was 12.  The song above, I Like To Move It, Move It had just come out, and whenever I hear it I think of that trip.  So now in my son’s school they play that song for the kids to dance to, and it was in the movie that is in the video above.  Every time I hear it I want to dance, and now I can dance with my kids.

Woo Hoo!

IMG_2834[1]Just coming home from a fun bachelorette party, after a wonderful day of Yoga classes. My kids are finishing camp, we are getting ready for a huge family wedding, school starts, we have a big trip coming up.  So much fun stuff going on, so excited, I really should be going to bed now.

When I teach Yoga, my brain stops thinking about everything and everyone, and I am 100% in tune with the students and the energy in the room.  I actually feed off that energy exchange, I need it to survive, to be recharged when I come home to my kids.

No big thoughts today, just gratitude, feeling in my own skin again.  Before the party, where I knew I was going to have a margarita, I was starving after teaching two classes and no food since lunch.  I was driving by Taeem, it is the most amazing, delicious food ever,

Enjoy Life,

Enjoy Food,

Welcome to my new website,!

Everything is in one place now, I am so excited, I did it all myself, feeling proud, taking charge, taking control, appreciate having the time to do it.  I literally have not slept, besides a huge event coming up, a few women that could go into labor any minute, and the everyday of a mom, I am so excited to keep building and promoting.

I am a personality type that loves a thrill, loves living on the edge, and I have turned that into a career.  At any moment my schedule can change, everybody I work with is also flexible and knows the important Doula work that I do.  It is exciting going through my day, appreciating that I get to teach Yoga and Pilates, and introduce the world to Arasys Inch Loss.  You can find out all the details by looking at the menu above, now everybody will have automatic access to my website and what I do.

I had the most amazing Prenatal Yoga group yesterday, it is such a beautiful energy of pregnant women getting together, supporting each other, asking questions, and just letting themselves feel good and talk about anything and everything.

Coming up, three Yoga classes, and a night out with the girls, celebrating a future member of our family.  I feel blessed for a full life of wonderful family relationships, great friends, and meeting new people everyday through the work I do.

I choose to always see the positive and be grateful with what I have, I do not know another way to operate.  Life does have its ups and downs, and in the big picture it all moves us towards growth, learning, and a better version of ourselves.

Feel Good My Friends,

Coach Yulia
