About Me: Experience and Training

Experience and Training:

Arlyn Boltax is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She is a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and has studied with many leaders in the field of holistic health and nutrition.

Arlyn is the founder and director of Wellness From Within, a private practice providing nutritional counseling and yoga. Wellness From Within (In Hebrew: Briut M’Bifnim) offers a variety of wellness programs, each designed to educate and empower people to improve their health and relationship to their bodies through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. Arlyn specializes in working with women and in helping parents nourish their growing families. Additionally, Arlyn gives dynamic and informative lectures on nutrition topics.

Arlyn is also a Certified Yoga Teacher. She has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, and has been teaching since 1999. Arlyn is certified in Om Yoga (a dynamic, vinyasa-style yoga) and prenatal yoga, and for the past 8 years has been studying Anusara Yoga with John Friend and other top Anusara teachers. She currently holds the status of “Anusara Inspired Teacher”. She is trained in yoga therapy, and uses yoga to help people recover from both acute injuries and chronic structural misalignments. She has taught yoga in corporate, medical and educational settings, to students of all ages and abilities, and also teaches unique “Jewish Yoga” classes that blend the teachings of the two ancient traditions.

Prior to becoming a yoga teacher and a health counselor, Arlyn was an English and Social Studies teacher. Arlyn received her Master’s Degree in Education from Bank Street College, and has taught in a wide variety of progressive educational settings, both public and private. The organizational and teaching skills that she gleaned from her years as a teacher have proven invaluable in her work as a yoga teacher and health counselor.

Arlyn’s most effective and influential teachers are her family! Her husband and children (ages 9, 7, 5 and 2 1/2) are constantly informing her practice by challenging her to “walk her talk” and be present in every moment.
