Natalija's passion for yoga and consistent daily yoga practice since 2007 make her a humble and thoroughly authentic yoga practitioner and instructor, her teaching style is natural and pure, without a sign of aerobics or dance moves. Her classes are very consistent and are based on her own personal practice experience.
Natalija's classes are nourishing, strong, precise, and accessible. She combines the benefits of powerful yoga, anatomical precision and mindfulness to help you feel strong, energized, balanced and grounded. Each session brings depth and clarity by incorporating Yin & Yang elements to create a safe and calm environment. She will take you to new places in your practice that you know you can reach with the right mix of sweet encouragement and tenacity. Although the practice might be physically demanding, the aim of each lesson is to move beyond the asana practice and to connect a little bit deeper with your own essence, to find true harmony deep within.
Natalija lives and works in Zurich and Mallorca. She knows how easy it is to get carried away by the busyness and noise of everyday life because she is an entrepreneur in artist management and photo productions since 2007 (Visualeyes, Zurich), mama of Romeo since 2011, and a yoga instructor in the midst of this hectic and demanding life. It’s this which formed her mission: To inspire and support others to consciously master daily challenges and navigate through life with yoga as a tool to explore the more subtle realms of our being, to soften from the inside out while still maintaining focus and direction on one's life mission, and if this hasn't been clear yet, to find it.
Natalija’s primary teachers are Stephen Thomas (Hatha Yoga and Pranayama) and Michael Hamilton (Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga). She has further trained with Josh Summers (Yin Yoga), Mark Stephens (Yoga Therapy), Doug Keller (Yoga Philosophy and Yoga Therapy), Sudhir Rishi (Pranayama and Yoga Philosophy), Yoga Medicine (Traditional Chinese Medicine Yoga Training and Myofascial Release Training) and studied with Sri Dharma Mittra, Richard Freeman, Mark Robberds, Deepika Mehta and Laruga Glaser who have all inspired and influenced her teaching style.
Till today she feels supremely connected to her first teacher in India “Vinod Bhaskaran Sreedevi”, who lit the fire Natalija has for this practice, and to whom she feels deep gratitude each day she steps on her mat.
