Way back in the 1970's and '80's, Natasha grew up in an intentional spiritual community with her parents and two older sisters. While not practicing the physical aspects of yoga yet, she was introduced to a spiritual path at a very young age. This is the foundation to how she lives her life today.
Guided by her creative spirit, she started studying dance at the age of six and continued into a professional career until her late twenties. She was introduced to yoga to help heal her body of the injuries sustained through years of dance. Before embarking on the path of a yoga teacher, Natasha went to massage school and practiced as an RMT for eight years. During this time she continued to deepen her journey as a yoga practitioner, studying with inspiring teachers in Vancouver.
Natasha embraces life-long learning. Her teaching practice is grounded in over 500 hours of teacher training. She completed Hatha Yoga Teacher Training and Power Yoga training at the Prana Yoga College of Vancouver. She was fortunate to study with the International School of Yoga Therapy Vancouver under the mentorship of Maggie Reagh and Lindsay Whalen. She continues her study of yoga with the daily practice of Mysore under the guidance of Jonathan Austman and engages with ongoing advanced yoga teacher training.
Natasha has been teaching yoga since 2002 and is grateful to guide her students through this lifelong journey. Her attention to detail and hands-on adjustments give her students the support they need for their own growing yoga practice. Natasha believes that once you step onto your yoga mat, whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, everything begins there. It's a lot of hard work and often a humbling process. As BKS Iyengar said, "Yoga is a work-in, not a work-out."
