Hi, I’m Nat.
I am a certified Yoga and Yin Yoga Teacher from Melbourne, Australia. I teach beginner friendly yoga to all levels, with a focus on welcoming those who are new to yoga.
When I first started practicing yoga as a beginner, I was very hesitant to give it a go. I had many preconceived ideas about people who did yoga (fit, flexible, vegetarian, spiritual) and it didn’t seem like something I could do if I didn’t fit the stereotype.
Nevertheless, I was going through a stressful time of uncertainty in my life and the prospect of feeling calmer and less anxious was enough to finally give in and try it.
I soon fell in love with yoga because it opened me up to a space where I could find peace and calm within myself.
As I developed a regular practice I often found myself drawn to yoga classes outside of a yoga studio. It always felt more relaxed, friendly and community-like.
I really felt uncomfortable with the way yoga was portrayed in the media because it was, (partly unknowingly), feeding that stereotype that only thin, young and flexible females can do yoga.
When I started teaching yoga I knew I had to make sure I could reach people who needed the benefits of yoga, but would not normally come to yoga. This is why I teach all levels yoga that is beginner friendly.
I first started teaching in schools and love that children as young as 5 were learning how to self-regulate and be in tune with their bodies.
I now teach adults yoga classes because I know many adults, like myself, grew up in a world where learning the tools of mindfulness and yoga was uncommon or non-existent.
Before yoga I wasn’t very self-aware, I had no idea how to regulate my emotions and I didn’t value my physical or mental health. I was constantly anxious, had poor body image and didn’t know what I wanted in life.
With a commitment to yoga and mindfulness I have opened myself up to a new perspective on life. I now feel much more equipped to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life, with a healthier mindset and body.
