Yaroslavna is a mom of two daughters with a business degree and a great love for dance. She has 15 years of experience in ballroom dances, complemented with other dance styles like latino, bellydance, folk dance, classic ballet.
After choosing to pursue a business career over dance goals, Yaro worked as finance and strategy consultant for 16 years, while always keeping dancing as a hobby and something close to her heart. After becoming a mom for the first time in 2020, Yaro also discovered her passion for everything motherhood-and-children related. She believes that the way the children are being raised has a tremendous impact on the way our society will look in the future.
Just after the birth of her second daughter in 2022, Yaro discovered Barre&Baby and was amazed by the opportunity to combine both motherhood and dance in one concept. Yaro has certified as Barre&Baby teacher in 2023, accompanied by her newborn daughter who has been sharing the dancefloor with her mom since the first weeks.

Yaro comes from Russia, lived in Belgium (Brussels) for almost 10 years, and is now based in London (Teddington).
