About Zhenya or @zhenyanovareign

Since 2005, Zhenya has been on a dedicated path of study, practice, and reclamation of ancient healing modalities that nurture and sustain wholeness on a mental, physical, spiritual level & community level.

As an Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy practitioner, Zhenya serves clients who struggle to get their reproductive health imbalances addressed with purely allopathic models of care by providing a truly holistic approach. For many, navigating reproductive health imbalances leads to a plethora of medical interventions that start at a very young age,  when hormonal birth control is prescribed for symptoms such as period pain, acne, irregular menstruation & more. This kind of approach completely overlooks the root of these physical imbalances, often creating more harm and often even more serious issues further down the road.

Zhenya is committed to providing accessible, effective support and education for anyone navigating sexual health challenges. She empowers community wellness by teaching her clients how to: regulate monthly cycles, address pain, detoxify from hormonal birth control, scar tissue remediation, hormonal balance, restore fertility, trauma-integration techniques, & self-advocacy when navigating medical interventions.

As a trauma-informed sex and intimacy coach, Zhenya is committed to bridging the gap between reproductive health and sexual trauma, supporting individuals to heal & reconnect with the sacred potency and power of a life-affirming and healthy relationship with sex. She is passionate about bringing this work to those who have suffered from sexual trauma and offers scholarships for anyone working in war-torn areas where sexual violence is prevalent, especially in her birth county, Ukraine.

In addition to this work, Zhenya is a mother, song collector, singer, artist, and lover of the natural world.


10% of the total cost of every for class is tithing. This tithing is split three ways.  A third goes to the Itzamna Society - Don Elijio's descendants who protect the sacred forest at the Elijio Panti National Park in Belize.  A third goes to  Walter Cholotio, a Tz'utujil Maya Fire and Daykeeper in Guatemala. The final third goes to supporting indigenous healers and/or environmental care projects on the land trainings are held. You can learn more at our Giving Back page.
