I am a passionate yoga student and have been a teacher on this path since 2002.
I am primarily a teachers' teacher and a large part of my work is teacher training and mentoring. I no longer offer 200 hour trainings in BC, but am on the faculty for the Vancouver School of Yoga and am part of their 200 hour, 240 hour and 300 hour programs. I am also a guest teacher for other teacher training programs in BC.
Through my own yoga school Natalie Rousseau~Living Yoga I offer private mentoring for yoga teachers as well as Advanced Teaching Intensives.
The other part of my work is inspired by my love of Ayurveda, earth based wisdom teachings, and mythology. I offer immersion programs, retreat, online courses and workshops that weave these teachings together with vinyasa yoga, meditation, and the sadhana of self care.
You can find out more about my offerings on my website.

An Outstanding Teacher

Nat is extremely knowledgable and an outstanding teacher. Her clear-minded passion for her vocation is apparent in all aspects of her life. She teaches all aspects of yoga, the entire Ashtanga! It is so refreshing to encounter such a depth of understanding coupled with a true talent for teaching.


Her teaching inspires confidence in her students and instills a hunger to know more. She is humble and approachable and never makes her students feel that they are less because they are new, strangers in town, or just not blessed with pretzel flexibility. :)

As a teacher of teachers, she shares without reservation and makes every one of her students feel as if they are each uniquely talented and individually blessed. After the training, she is always available for questions, advice and sharing of resources.

Natalie's asana practice is elegant and looks effortless (it's NOT!). If you are lucky enough to be in a place where she is teaching, don't miss her class!

Warm & Inspirational

Natalie continues to be inspired by her own beliefs and teachings, so you know it is coming from a genuine authentic place. If you want to bring overall heath and change into your life, Natalie is your gal! She is full of SO much knowledge and presents it in non-judgmental fashion that you can accept yourself for who you are, honor your limitations and move forward. Natalie weaves yoga, lifestyle, and diet into a beautiful net where you feel safe to explore ALL parts of yourself, especially the ones that you sweep under the rug. Natalie has an amazing gift bring her own experiences into teachings for others to flourish.

an exceptional teacher

I have practiced with several amazing yoga teachers over the years and consider Natalie to be among the best of them. I did a RYT 200 course with her and her knowledge of asana and anatomy is encyclopedic and deeply steeped in traditional spiritual practice, but what really sets apart is her infectious curiosity and passion what she does. She is a great teacher and a wonderful person.
