This class is taught by:

Natalie Shapiro

 
As a 200-RYT, Natalie applies yoga as a therapeutic practice for the mind, body and soul. Eight years ago, in an attempt to access warmth through heated yoga while living in the Netherlands, Natalie very quickly learned yoga offered much more than heat, and it soon became a consistent and deepening practice. After years of a personal practice, Natalie received her training under Megan Whitney and Jenn Bobbitt at Yoga Centre SLO. Her teaching style is designed to safely align her students in order to offer them the freedom to make it their personal practice. She teaches asana, pranayama and meditation as platforms to move deeper into one’s self and as a means for healing and transformation. In addition to teaching yoga, Natalie is a Strategic Coach working with women to find peace with food and their bodies. She is a healer at heart and is always seeking to offer her students and clients the experience of meaningful freedom.
 
 
Why yoga?
Breath. Embodiment. Freedom. When my body meets the mat, everything drops back to center. The mind releases its restraints and I come back to soul. Finding the balance between strength and ease in the body and mind is a beautiful part on the journey. 

Who or what inspires you?
My teachers, guides, and mentors inspire me daily. These guides have taught me how to live with more compassion and wisdom - learning how to let go while also standing firm.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Grounding, opening, home-coming. 

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
This is an ongoing journey. But at the moment, I feel the most fearlessly authentic when it comes to my voice and how I use it. Feeling more and more clear that what comes through me has value and is worth sharing.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
Hmmm. Naps are my favorite. 

One evening every month, we will come together in Sacred Circle to drop back into the sacredness of our lives and these times. We will gather our sangha – our community – sharing song and dharma, prayer and meditation, support and intention. Each circle will be crafted to support us all in living with more steadiness and ease through current tides of our time. We will clear energies that no longer serve and simultaneously invoke the power to breathe, walk, and Be in warmth of compassion and depth of wisdom.
