Natalie Forrest

YOGA INSTRUCTOR & DOCTOR OF APPLIED ECOPHSYCHOLOGY


Natalie began learning yoga in the late 90’s, and immediately felt something in the practice click within her. At that time, she was searching for stability and a deeper understanding of her, and she found both in yoga.
 

Although she loved the physical aspects of it, but what really spoke to her was the insight it offered, the contemplation, and the techniques to focus her mind, be more present and have the ability to access breath when she needed to. In short, she loved the entirety of yoga, not just the physical aspects of it that had become so popular.
 

Most importantly, the practice gave Natalie a language for something that she was already feeling.
 

If she had to sum up what Yoga is to her, it's the practice of dissolving what stops her from being deeply peaceful. This isn't a lifestyle, it is part of what helps her be who she is.

How do we design a life that feels nourishing and fulfilling? So often we experience a battle between our heads and our hearts when we ask ourselves these questions.
