Natalia first tried yoga in her early 20’s in an attempt to find relief from anxiety and depression. Within the first few classes, she experienced tremendous positive change in her mental health and within a year, she completed her first certification in Hatha Yoga, which set her off on a path of healing and empowered transformation. Since then, she has trained in an array of healing modalities and found her calling in empowering women through movement, breathwork, women’s circles and connection to the Sacred Feminine.
Natalia's classes cultivate ease, flexibility and steadiness within the body, while developing self-awareness and connection to the innate wisdom of the body. Her classes include an intuitive blend of alignment, strength, deep stretch, mindfulness and coordination of breath with movement. Each class consists of intention setting, breathing practices, movement and guided relaxation to leave participants feeling expanded, rejuvenated and tension-free.
Natalia is a certified teacher of Hatha, Vinyasa & Restorative Yoga as well as Well Woman Yoga Therapy (Womb Yoga). She also holds certifications in Mindfulness Meditation, Clarity Breathwork, Reiki and Emotional Freedom Technique.
