A wee bit about Natalie
I am a fully qualified and insured Holistic Therapist and have specialized in therapeutic massage for over 18 years. A student of yoga for 20 years, I started teaching yoga in 2010 after a 2 year training apprenticeship (YTTC 500+ hours).
I combine my knowledge and experience of yoga, massage therapy and well being to create classes and workshops that enourage students to take control of their health and healing by focusing on their specific problem areas. I help students on part of their journey into developing a deeper relationship with their bodies at all levels both in classes and on a 1:1 basis.
Clients include a range of abilities from absolute beginners, students who are returning to their mat and/or exercise after a long break and to students with a regular practice who want to advance further. I also specialise in helping clients overcome psychological issues such as stress, anxiety and low self esteem.
I travelled and worked around the world for two years before settling in Koh Lanta, Thailand. I trained and worked there teaching yoga classes and workshops for 5 years, running my yoga business along side my Massage business before returning to Devon to start my family.
I am forever grateful to my teachers old and new - Mona Haymaker, Angela Trainer, Bryan Kest, Paul Grilley, Susan Powers and Sadie Nardini.
I originally started yoga to help calm my mind and keep me sane, and continued to practice as I felt the benefits on all levels of my being. I can definitely claim to have a calm mind (most of the time) and I defintiely have sane moments.
Over the last 20 years, my pracitce has evolved as has my life. I am currently building my life long dream of creating a healing space in our field to offer people outdoor yoga, therapy and an invitation to hang out with our animals. This year my fiance and I created Dartmoor Reach Alpaca Farm....still in the making so please watch this space!
I am a full member of IYN (International Yoga Network).
