Yulia was born and raised in Russia and moved to New York City in 2005.
She received my certification as Holotropic Breathwork Practitioner in 2014, and has been on facilitation teams in the United States since 2013. Yulia holds a MA degree from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sofia University) with a specialization in Spiritual Psychology, also teaches Kundalini yoga individually and in small groups, and facilitates Holotropic Breathwork workshops on a regular basis. She launched Holotropic Space in 2017 to support a growing international community of Breathers living in or visiting, the NYC area. As Transpersonal Psychologist, Yulia
strongly believes in the healing power of non-ordinary states of consciousness. She also facilitate Support groups for people who are undergoing “spiritual emergency” – a transformational crisis, which (when properly understood) could be an opportunity of rising to a new level of awareness and personal growth; or for their family and friends who want to support loved ones in this stage of their life. In these meetings, main focus is on exploration of the different forms of assisting people in psycho-spiritual crises through sharing and seeking understanding that enhances the positive potential of these non-ordinary states of consciousness.
In 2020 Yulia and her family partially moved to farmland in New Jersey where she had an opportunity to create her own "Holotropic Space" - a safe and specious space in Colts Neck, NJ, where all group events are taking place.
