Talya Lutzker :

Talya Lutzker is a certified yoga teacher, Ayurvedic practitioner, massage therapist, cookbook author, and the founder of Ayurveda Every Day with Talya – an Ayurvedic lifestyle and nourishment hub in Santa Cruz.

She helps students improve their health and put self-care at the center of their lives through yoga and Ayurveda – India’s time-tested systems of holistic health and nourishment.

Talya discovered yoga – her first love – in 1993 while backpacking Alaska’s wilderness. Inspired by her immersion in movement, breath, and nature, Talya dedicated herself to yoga and became certified to teach in 2001.

Her extensive study of Iyengar yoga plus her devotion to her personal practice shines through in her engaging, clear and enthusiastic teaching style. Talya’s classes increase body wisdom, instill deeper self-awareness, and offer precise and detailed instruction that inspires.

She studies regularly with Kofi Busia and Maya Lev and has traveled extensively to learn and teach yoga in places like India, Australia, Italy, and Mexico. When she isn’t practicing yoga and Ayurveda, you’ll find Talya cooking, camping, and walking on the beach with her dog, ZuZu.
