Hi, I'm Natalie

I have been practicing yoga for over sixteen years and sharing the teachings for five.  Yoga has grown from a purely physical experience to a means for mental clarity and stability to a life purpose to a spiritual path.  As an initiate of the Sri Vidya tradition, I belong to a Living Lineage, an unbroken line of yoga devotees that extends back over 2,000 years.


My teacher is Tracee Stanley, who's teacher is Yogarupa Rod Stryker, who's teacher is Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, who's teacher was the great Swami Rama.  My teaching is a modern take on an ancient tradition.  It is an exploration of Tantra as presented through a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa Krama.  Practicing consistently with me will help to strengthen and purify the body, calm and stabilize the mind, generate and manage prana and facilitate reintegration with your higher, sacred self.  

Currently a 500-hour registered yoga teacher, I am a life long student and continue to study with my revered teacher, Tracee Stanley.  I am also on the path to becoming a certified Para Yoga teacher under Yogarupa Rod Stryker.  I teach primarily in Malibu, Calabasas and Agoura Hills, sharing yoga with students from 5 years old to 87 through private sessions, studio classes and special events.   I also lead yoga & meditation retreats both locally and abroad as well as workshops for more in-depth study.
