Natalie Lim 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, also accredited by the International Yoga Alliance. 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.
Coming from a training background as a corporate trainer in an MNC, Natalie ensured that her learning continues in order to keep abreast with the latest practices in yoga instruction. She attends yoga workshops (both local and overseas) whenever she can and will soon be training under Sharath Jois the grandson of Pathabi Jois (the founder of Ashtanga Yoga).
Natalie has been conducting private classes, small group classes and corporate classes for the past three years. Natalie 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: Ashtanga, Childrens Yoga and Pre/Post Natal.
Whilst not teaching yoga, Natalie is a mom of two precocious boys and has a love for baking healthy bakes for her kids. She also shares her passion for yoga with her two boys who gamely practices with her.
