Natasha infuses a deep wisdom from years of study and practice with a refreshing lightness in all her various types of classes and methods of teaching. An Alaskan transplant, she discovered yoga in her hometown of Anchorage in 2000. Enlivened by the yoga practice of linking breath with movement, she set out to awaken the teacher within. Having healed her physical pain from three car crashes in 2008, Natasha passionately aims to help her students feel comfortable in their body. When we are in pain or discomfort it difficult to show up and be truly present. She recognizes that too often we settle into a state of dis-ease rather than giving time and effort to explore and make habit changes that alleviate pain and allow oneself to thrive in the body, mind and spirit. Natasha works to help connect students to their own inner body wisdom. Natasha has studied various different styles with many different teachers, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Yin, Hot 26 and 2, Kundalini, Power, and Prana Flow. She has also studied Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old holistic system of traditional medicine, the sister science of yoga. Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit words ayur, meaning life and veda, meaning science or knowledge. Ayurveda focuses on living in sync with daily and seasonal rhythms. In addition Natasha is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and works with people who are suffering from digestive issues. A MELT Method instructor as well as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. She loves skiing, backpacking, and playing in the mountains.
