Natalie has been practicing yoga since 2012. Her journey began with Ashtanga yoga whilst working in the corporate world. What started as a workout turned into a lifestyle and she decided that she wanted to teach yoga as this would allow her to do something she is passionate about and also help others lead healthier lifestyle by practising yoga. It is this passion that has helped her grow so much in such a short time.
In 2012, she enrolled in the renowned Tirisula Yoga’s
and graduated with a Diploma in the 200-hour teacher training course. Not satisfied, she pursued teaching yoga to children and in December 2013, she received her certification to teach yoga to kids and families. In October 2015, she completed the Pregnancy, Birth and Baby Yoga Training obtaining her certification to teach Pre/Post Natal classes to moms-to-be and new moms. This was followed by a Wheel Yoga certification in July 2018 and MyoFascial Release & Yin Yoga certification in December 2019.
Coming from a training background as a training manager back when she was in the ‘rat race’, Natalie ensures that her learning continues in order to keep abreast with the latest practices in yoga instruction by attending at least one yoga workshop a year.
Natalie has been conducting private classes, small group classes and corporate classes since 2013. She has worked closely with individuals of different body types, providing her with a deeper understanding of physical limitations and individual pace. This accumulated experience also gives her insights into providing posture and alignments adjustments for her students which add value to these sessions. Natalie currently teaches the following yoga styles and classes: Hatha, Kids Yoga, Pre and Post Natal Yoga, Yin Yoga, MyoFascial Release and Core Work.
Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on passive, seated postures that target the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for anywhere between one and five minutes.
Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility and develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques in preparation for labour.
This class is designed to nurture new mums and provide a safe environment for them to heal and repair their bodies and to talk about their experiences of birth as well as being a new mum.
