About Me

Hello and warm welcome to Natallia’s Fitness.  My name is Natallia and I hope you will find everything you are looking for on this website. These pages represent all my passions, ideas, creations,  knowledge and experiences of the last 14 years.

I am originally from Belarus and came to Scotland in 2004, fell in love with this country and the rest is history. I have 2 degrees in non fitness related disciplines: one in Languages and Linguistics (from Belarus) and the second one in Business, Management with specialisation in Marketing (from UHI).

 

I am currently based in Dingwall and run online sessions, group classes and workshops as well as making essential oils potions and blends, walking my Weimaraner Zen Dog Poppy, paddleboarding with my daughter and painting terracotta pots!

 

My fitness journey started many many years ago when I was 12 or 13 with Callanetics, Aerobics and by the age of 18  I was spending 2-3 hours daily (and most of my bursary) at the Fitness studios. My fitness direction has been progressively changing from higher intensity activities (running, CrossFit, step and similar) to more lower impact strength, movement, alignment and breath based activities like Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Myofascial Release. Strength, alignment, flow, mindfulness, breath and functional movement would probably describe my current style of teaching and that is where my passion is. I love a good strong Flow or a Pilates class, but at the same time always looking forward to a nice relaxing Yin Session.

I strongly believe in continuous education and spend considerable amount of time on upgrading my knowledge and skills attending workshops,  trainings and educating myself on various subjects and disciplines.

Essential oils have been an Essential part of my life for the last few years. I have swapped my perfume for natural blends 2 years ago, and most of the cleaning, bath and  'smelly' stuff in the house is all made with essential oils. I have taken up 2 Aromatherapy Courses so far (and still studying it). My hobby has gradually grown into something bigger and we have been making essential blends to sell for the last year and a half. Essentially You Brand was born this year and Essentially You Self Care Boxes have just been launched in summer 2020. It is something I am very passionate about. We are using high quality ethically sourced and produced oils. Everything is hand made and hand blended with love and gratitude!

We have been supporting various local charities since 2007  - the year when I officially launched Natallia's Fitness. Over £5000 has been raised since then in aid of different charities.
