Although she may be a belly-laughing, hard-loving, prana-peddling, backbend junkie that she is, if you’d told Natassia over a decade ago that she’d be living the life of a modern yogi, she’d never have believed you! What started as an outlet to relieve stress and stay active after college has since evolved into a way of life and personal passion as a Certified Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. During her 200-hour training with Drishti Yoga in Costa Rica in April 2015, she immersed herself in the practice, anatomy, and philosophy of traditional hatha, vinyasa, and yin yoga. Upon her return home to her husband and their 3-legged cat named Gertrude the Philadelphia area, Natassia began and continues to teach weekly yoga & meditation classes in addition to immersive workshops in several yoga studios in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Ever a student, you can find Natassia taking weekly classes and monthly workshops with her beloved local teachers and annual immersions with her favorite international teacher-trainers Her studies in the system and practice of yoga has given way to complimentary ongoing studies in the Meridian System, Astrology, Reiki, Herbalism, and the Subtle Body.
While teaching, Natassia builds flowing, creative, & intelligent sequences on a strong foundation of alignment, breath awareness, and, of course, opening the heart. It is her hope that each student leave class with a sense of physical empowerment, mental clarity, and awareness of their physical & energetic bodies.
