Sometimes in life, you just need change. This change is usually brought about for one of two reasons: want or necessity. When you talk to Katya Sidelnik, you will find out that it was a combination of both that took her from life’s first passion, dancing, to her current passion, yoga. Katya is one of the lucky ones among us who has been able to take her passion and make it into her business with Inner Jasmine – Yoga & Wellness Studio.

Katya’s first passion was dancing, and she did it at many different levels from middle school all the way to a dance company spanning over 2 decades. However, as many elite dancers can attest, she sustained many injuries throughout her dancing years. None more severe than when she partially dislocated her hip. Still wanting to perform in an upcoming summer tour, she went and danced anyway. When Katya returned, she had completely misaligned and construed her body. “I was given two options: stop dancing or continue and I would need a hip replacement before I was 35 years old,” Katya explains. The options presented as suitable were swimming or yoga. “I have always said that was one of the worst, best things that ever happened to me.” She continues, “It made me find another outlet in my world that I enjoy. Not that I don’t miss dancing. It will always be my first love and my hearts passion. But I did need to find a different way of creating balance for my life, and yoga was doorway for it.”

So many of us are used to working out at home. For many reason, it is more convenient especially if we travel for a living and are short for time, have small children at home, or simply a busy lifestyle. Others really thrive on the community that forms from going to a gym or studio to take classes, get a way from the home, not be bothered by family/work and truly disconnect. In our current environment, we are all either at home, or outside in our yards doing our best to stay motivated to be healthy, use the equipment that we have, and pick the most appropriate group or 1:1 fitness leadership that meets our goals!

For some, that is watching one person lead us in exercise on a Facebook Live video. Others thrive on Zoom, where they are able to see what their peers are doing (pending everyone's privacy approval of course!). Some are taking 1:1 classes for yoga, pilates, flexibility, injury prevention, fitness, personal training, sport-specific enhancement and more. It truly is all available, it is just a matter of what fits you the best.
