Hello lovely you!
I’m Nat. I believe that everything is yoga, from ayurveda to astrology, and hot chocolates to sunshine. For me, it’s a way of getting to know who we truly are by reconnecting to and nurturing the soul.
I teach Hatha Flow and Yin yoga, with 500+ hours of Yoga Alliance certified training from Dr. Gaurav Malik in India and Sarah Lo in London. Hatha Flow is a holistic and dynamic practice, working the entire body to improve balance, strength and flexibility. Yin is floor-based and moves at a much slower pace, with poses held for a longer period of time to allow for deep release of blockages in both body and mind, and increasing energy flow. My classes typically include pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and mantra. We usually smile and often giggle, because although yoga is a serious, life-changing practice, we don’t always have to be so serious while doing it. A light heart and a smile can go a long way on the mat. I encourage softness, emphasising the breath and alignment to help you go deeper. Each day on the mat is different, so it’s more important to me that you feel supported and empowered in class, rather than trying to create an Instagram-worthy shape.
When I first started yoga, I was living a busy corporate life in London and coming to the end of a decade-long relationship. The classes were initially just an alternative to the gym but something kept me coming back. I didn’t know what it was at the time, but now I know it was the feeling of my soul being slowly nurtured back to health. The positive changes those classes brought about, along with job boredom, led me to quit, travel to India and complete my first teacher training.
Whilst experiencing the magic of India, love struck when I met a guy called Simon, a fellow yoga teacher. After travelling through Asia together, I moved to his home city of Ulm in southern Germany where I now live and teach while continuing to learn, evolve and share the gift of yoga.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope to practice with you soon!
