Arun (India). She developed customized individual prenatal programs at the St. Petersburg Center. Svetlana traveled to India to study with B.K.S. Iyengar at Pune in 2007. She has taught at The Yoga Haven since 2010 and became a U.S. citizen in 2011. Svetlana's teaching is precise and powerful, rooted in the teachings of BKS Iyengar. She  is a licensed Massage Therapist, and an accomplished visual artist.
