Natasja’s background is in dance, and attended the prestigious modern dance school; CodArts in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and enjoyed many years of an active dance career.

NATASJA’S TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Natasja believes that yoga is for everyone and for every body! Her classes are inclusive and she has the amazing ability to teach the same class at multiple levels, therefor every person in her classes feel safe, successful, and balanced in body, mind and spirit. The morning vinyasa yoga classes begin with a grounding movement meditation and breathing (pranayama) practices, allowing the student to fully drop-in and being present on the mat. Each class will have a different theme and/or peak pose. Classes are sequenced with great creative  intelligence, so that the body and mind are completely prepared to move into the peak pose. Hands-on-enhancements are provided through out the class allowing the student to experience a deeper embodiment of the pose. Each class ends with a 10 minutes shavasana and/or meditation. Natasja’s unique touch is that she leaves you an oracle card at the top of your mat with a message that is just for you.

The afternoon yoga classes are very gentle and restorative in nature, essential oils and therapeutic touch are used, creating a magical and nourishing experience for the student. The afternoon classes incorporate breathing (pranayama) practices, mudras (sacred hand gestures), and/or myofascial release techniques.

All of Natasja’s classes are accompanied with music. Music is a very important component in Natasja’s classes and her playlists are created with great care to ensure that they match the experience of the class. Music is like adding spice to food, therefor creating a richer and deeper experience of the yoga practice.

WORKSHOPS

INTRODUCTION TO AYURVEDA: HOW TO OPTIMIZE YOUR OWN HEALTH & WELL-BEING.

Ayurveda is the oldest healing modality in the world and is the sister science of yoga. In recent years more and more physicians are taking notice as the science of Ayurveda is able to give one a deeper understanding of where disease originates in the body. Many doctors are beginning to realize that the “bandaid” solution is no longer working for their patients, they are tired of giving patients medications to curb the side affects of the medication they prescribed to treat their condition in the first place. Ayurveda is a system that understands that the mind and the bodyare inextricably connected, nothing is more powerful than the mind. The mind has the ability to transform and heal the body. In this workshops we will look at the mind and how they are influenced by the three Gunas of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. You will be given tools to optimize Sattva in your life, you will also learn what your constitution (dosha) is and what it is you can do to optimize your constitution by making small changes to your diet and lifestyle. Price is $50 or $75 for both.

SELF-MASTERY WORKSHOP “JOURNEY TO SELF”

Are you desiring a life that is more full of joy, vibrant health, synchronicity, grace, abundance, inspiration and peace?. Join Natasja in this powerful 2.5 hours workshop where you will be guided through powerful Himalayan Kriya & Pranayama techniques that cut through old and deep patterns of conditioning (samskaras). You will also be given tools how to access your True Nature/Divine Self/Higher Self which allows you to increase your magnetism, radiance and vibration ultimately leading you to more deserving power.  The more you  are able to access your True Nature the more you can come into alignment of what it is that you need to do here on this planet, you begin to truly see the significance of your life and how often the lower mind is hijacking your greatness and trying to keep you logged into fear rather then in love. When you participate in this workshop you will receive a $50 credit towards a Personal Life Jyotish Reading with Natasja.

VEDIC ASTROLOGY READINGS

Experience one-on-one Jyotish Astroly Life readings. The price is $150 for a 90 min reading. When students participate in one of the above workshops they receive $50 off.
