I have had the pleasure of practicing yoga with Nathalie for over five years. She helped me to see that what you do on the mat is reflective of what you do in everyday life and that yoga is really a means for personal growth, physically and mentally. If you can learn how to change your behaviour during your practice, then you can learn how to change your behaviour in the rest of your life. Nathalie keeps you honest during your practice by always encouraging you to push yourself outside your comfort zone as often as possible. Before I started practicing yoga with her I never thought of yoga as being challenging or life changing, but over the years she has helped me to see that it is both.
Nathalie has found her calling in life when she decided to become a yoga teacher. She has a keen sense for knowing the right thing to say, exactly at the right moment, to make my mind turn inwards and gain a deeper awareness and understanding of myself, and why I do the things I do. And just when I begin to think that I’ve figured something out, she says the next right thing and opens my eyes to the fact that there is yet another even deeper layer to peel away and explore. It’s humbling and it’s hard work, both physically and mentally, but this newly gained awareness of my body and mind seems to permeate all aspects of my life, and helps me prioritize and focus on the things that are most important to me.
I have been attending Nathalie’s class for well over a year. She has a very personalized approach to training and definitely cares for her students. Her classes are always challenging and feel designed for you.
I have definitely benefited from my time in her class, and would absolutely recommend her to both new and experienced people. You will soon believe her when she says it is all about the hips!
