Natalie was born and raised in San Luis Obispo. I fell in love with dance at the age of 3 and from there, I continued on to join The Civic Ballet Company of SLO. My yoga journey began when I was 19 and beginning college. It helped me maintain a calm, steady focus and brought so much peace into my heart. I was hooked. From there my path led me to Harmony House Yoga where I gained an even deeper connection with my practice. That’s when I knew I wanted to be a teacher. In 2015, Yoga Village helped me transform this dream into a reality, guiding me through my 200hr training; where I then became a RYT with Yoga Alliance. My passion to learn more just continued to grow and in March 2016, I completed my second 200hr training through Journey Inward with the inspirational Kelly Metcalf. Yoga has transformed my life in such a beautiful way. It taught me to surrender to something higher than myself. It gave me the strength to gaze inward; allowing me to see that I have all the answers deep inside, all I have to do is trust and listen. Yoga gave me the gift of living from a pure place of love and compassion; unveiling that this way of living is the ultimate path to healing. My hope and intention is to help my students do the same. To share with them my love, support and knowledge with the confidence that their days feel that much lighter and their hearts that much more open.
