With a background in humanitarian aid, Natalie was introduced to Jivamukti yoga after a friend brought her to her first Jivamukti class in 2010, shortly after returning from Iraq. In that first class, she experienced a release and, eager to understand the magic of Jivamukti, went on to complete the teacher training in 2011. Natalie later completed the 800-hour apprenticeship program with Rima Rabbath. From its platform of spiritual activism and compassion for all beings, to the intelligent sequencing, music and incorporation of mindfulness, the Jivamukti method continues to resonate with Natalie as a way to remain present with ourselves and connected to the world around us. Natalie continues to learn daily from the incredible students and teachers around her.
