Natalie’s first experience in yoga was at age fifteen having been dragged to an Ashtanga class by her sister. There she was, a spindly, uncoordinated teenager fumbling her way through a fairly advanced and seemingly serious yoga practice. Whilst making tremendous efforts not to laugh or fall over, eventually she cracked; Natalie laughed and even cried which the yoga teacher graciously described as 'just another way of energy releasing". Amidst her awkward teenage embarrassment there was something in Natalie that was deeply fascinated by the entire experience. Natalie continued to intermittently practise yoga later into her teenage years, eventually establishing a more consistent practise during her time working in the fashion industry as a model. Having been exposed to the extremely unrealistic nature of the modelling world, Natalie struggled with the relationship to her own body. Gradually she found salvation in yoga which taught her how to reconnect with her body and inspire a healthier outlook on life as a whole. A few years after leaving the fashion industry Natalie decided to enroll in a Yoga Teacher Training course along with studying in Pilates and Personal Training. Natalie now teaches yoga full time drawing from pilates, vinyasa and yin yoga to create a uniquely strong but supportive practise for her students. Natalie teaches with a light but nurturing approach, often encouraging laughter in her classes to soften around the seriousness that times creeps in to group classes from time to time. Natalie believes that yoga helps to lay the foundations for a “lighter life” allowing individuals to shed excessive efforts and hardships that tend to accumulate both physically and mentally in modern day life.
