Natalie’s practice is a dynamic flow between movement, stillness, creativity and supports balance of breath, physical alignment, self- awareness, curiosity and importance of returning back to the present moment. She shares yoga as an instrument for cultivating conscious awareness within the parts of ourselves that are asking for nourishment, liberation and compassion.

A Little More About Me
I facilitate all people. My classes are diverse in style, music, movement and artistic resonance. Be who you are and listen to sounds of vibratory intelligence within your body. I do encourage you to surrender to the atmospheric stillness, silent portals of soulful refuge and deep listening of the heart. Rest as needed and if you find yourself holding back a part of yourself that is crying to fly, I give you permission to express your truth and stream your authenticity in a way that feels alive within you. Maybe laughter or tears, prayer or jumping jacks, this practice is about honoring truth, you are safe to do that here. Adjust your poses and movement accordingly to your body’s wisdom because in this life people are too hard on themselves, they compare and contrast and strive to “become”, so I invite you to deeply listen to what feels in alignment for you and know that you are perfect, just come as you are. Open yourself to the energetics of balance, a constant dance of sensitivity, strength, not too much, not too little, to land your awareness on an instance of just right, where embers of remembrance glitter stamina when you least suspect. Deeply stored physiological recollections elate your breathing and navigate gracefully. My classes resonate with a vessel, where the bouquet of pathfinders tend to the collective consciousness and collaborate mindfulness. Feel your body, replenish, nourish and sensualize self discovery. Sustainability is key, and taking time regularly to give to yourself, to fill up your cup so you can give to the world. I am devoted to meeting you wherever you’re at, physically, spiritually, mentally emotionally and I offer you compassion as the foundation of our unified field. Moving, breathing, stretching beyond limiting perceptions, we explore, release, contract, spiral and expand, all in sacred flow to access the wholeness that is already present within. My love for the healing and informative frequencies of sound, voice and music from around the globe integrate soundscapes and invocations for liberation and free expression. I offer to you winds of inspiration, waves of renewal and fires of passion that serve to ignite power and presence in the touchstones of our creative transformations. May the ripening of your soul find peace and sovereign refuge and may the naturalistic movement of your being feel supported, safe and free.
I am simply a space holder, sparker and welcoming presence for your transformative touchstones to emerge through the art of living this embodiment practice. Show up just as you are and to meet yourself with patience, trust and kindness, there is no race or expectation but initiations of devotion to great spirit and potencies of the present moment. You are whole in essence and with love at your core, you are unified, sacred divine consciousness in matter, supreme being asking to be met with conscious wellbeing so you can dance, flow, fly and sing!
Experience & Qualifications
Vinyasa, Hatha, Power Yoga, Embodiment Flows (yoga, dance, somatics) beginner to Advanced Flows
The art of teaching yoga expands my practice, and practicing yoga daily informs my teaching. Hand in hand, they exist in reciprocity. The yoga practice is infinite discovery and each time I leave the mat, I am gifted treasures of inquiry, wisdom, revelation and transformation that transmute through my facilitation. I honor the humble warrior within all my teachers who don’t claim to “know it all”– because there is no destination or final place of arrival with the practice or teaching yoga. Teaching is a dance, that asks me to create a safe and inspiring container for bodies, minds and souls to find their own unique sense of “being-ness”. I teach from my heart and allow the great mystery to teach co-create with me. I’m honored to have shared the practice with so many intergenerational community members who have shown a very precious level of vulnerability, just by showing up to their mat and embody growth from the uncomfortable (tapas), birth light from within the dark and consciously collaborate in the power of intention and breathe—all uplifting one another together. I look forward to sharing the practice to people from around the world, young and old, making yoga an accessible sacred space to go inward, listen and grow. Namaste.
