Natalia is a graduate of Wild Lotus Yoga’s Soul School Teacher Training Program in 2012, is also certified by Sherry Goldstein’s Yoga Sanctuary’s Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2007 and an Anusara yoga teacher training in Las Vegas with Karen Lane in 2008. Natalia has been fortunate to study with many teachers of yoga including these great teachers: Sean Johnson- Bhakti guru and with a specific focus on Anusara through these teachers: Desiree Rumbaugh, Jaime Allison , Steven Espinosa, Kelly Hass, Jordan Bloom, Mitchel Bleier.
I feel blessed to have had the honor to study with so many amazing teachers in my life. I am inspired to share what I have learned with other people. My life changed for the better when I stepped in the world of yoga, I didn’t know what I signed up for. Yoga should come with the warning- once you start on this amazing journey you will not want to turn back, even when it gets really challenging. Yoga gives us that space to open up into the challenge of living beyond our comfort zone. It creates growth in physical and spiritual planes and I invite my students to come out and play and grow.
