Zhanna is originally from Tomsk, Siberia. Growing up in a holistic-oriented physician’s family, she has been fascinated by alternative healing methods and a mind-body connection since her early childhood. Spending summers with her grandmother’ in a rural Siberian village and growing up with a brother who had an incurable disease made a huge impact on her. But what probably affected her the most was the contrast between the culture and lifestyles of Soviet Russia, where she was born, and Muslim Kabul, Afghanistan, where she spent several years of her childhood. She developed a capacity to understand and celebrate unique personal and cultural differences, and to connect with people on a deep level, and that has been her vision and her mission ever since.

An avid reader, Zhanna pursued an advanced degree in Literature and Philosophy, taught at university, and tried different professional paths, before she discovered her passion to bring more wellness, harmony, and sensuality into people’s lives as a sexuality coach. Already a long-time yogini, occupational therapy practitioner, Reiki Master, and personal and professional development coach, Zhanna began to study Tantra in 2016, and started her Holistic Sex and Intimacy Coaching Practice shortly thereafter.

Drawing from her experiences in romantic relationships, including an eleven-year’ marriage, and her experiences of integrating into new cultures, she especially loves working with clients and students from different personal, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Zhanna creates a safe and healing space for people to discover and communicate their true desires, asking for what they want, and sharing their gifts in a way that is healthy and pleasurable for both partners. Zhanna integrates her training with the School of Consent, CA, into her work with couples, and loves finding ways to incorporate The Wheel of Consent into her sessions and workshops.
