About this pro

I specialize in a mindbody approach that is rooted in breathwork, biomechanics, energetic awareness, and the Chinese Medicine system of meridians, organs and emotions. I help people speed up their injury recovery process while addressing mind-body patterns that contribute to chronic pain conditions, stagnation or illness.

I also support women and mutli-cultural individuals in incorporating yoga therapy practices into any trauma recovery work they are already doing for the purpose of deeper integration and healing.

I love making yoga accessible and therapeutic to the mind, body, and hearts of the people I work with.

I specialize in working with people who are recovering from injury, chronic pain, or overcoming trauma, anxiety, co-dependency and depression.

Depending on the needs of each client, I create a custom-made approach that combines the mystical, hoilistic and technical aspects of yoga to help them get what they need and desire most out of their practice.

My teaching incoroporates breath-work, meditation, yoga postures, safe alignment, acupressure, and is a trauma-informed approach.

  • Katie K

    Natasha is by far the best yoga teacher I've ever found. In her classes, I've learned so much more than just yoga poses and breathwork. She's taught me about myself in ways I didn't even realize I needed. She is an old soul who truly SEES me each time I come to class, and meets me wherever I am. She is a gift and I'm incredibly grateful that my path has crossed hers in this life.

  • Sheri Boone

    the individual focus and care made my time with Natasha the best investment ever. She is a true pro, excellent practitioner, and loving soul. I can't praise her enough. I always come away with renewed energy, calm and peace, and centered focus. Thank you, Natasha!

  • Maria Paz Herrera

    I’ve known Natasha for the last five years and have always enjoyed her classes. They are centering, inspiring, challenging and always enjoyable. I always look forward to a class with her because I know I will feel better afterwards.

  • Annelise Green

    Natasha's vast knowledge and kind heart have extremely impressed me. I have been fortunate enough to have weekly sessions with her over the past year. Yoga with Natasha is transformative for my body and my spirit. It has helped me sleep better, kept my moods more centered, and motivated me to be more active. Natasha tailors each class to meet the needs of students. I shared a session once with my mom, who explained certain muscle issues she has had for decades. After our yoga practice, my mom mentioned to me that she felt more relief from following Natasha's guidance than she ever had from physical therapy. Natasha is truly a special and talented instructor. I recommend her to everyone.

>> Mentorships and Training others to Teach Yoga:

I mentor students making their transition from student to teacher of yoga. Mentorship programs are individualized to the qualities of each person and include observation skills, articulation and cueing skills, theming, class planning and design, pacing and effecting space holding, and more.

As a former faculty member at The Movement Center in Portland OR I co-designed and facilitated 4 rounds of yoga teacher training.

How did you get started teaching?

One of my yoga teachers took me under her wing and suggested that I begin learning how to share yoga with others. In time I became her asistant and eventually went on to teach and further my studies from there.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've taught people of all ages, abilities, and walks of life.

I've worked with aging populations who are learning to live with the natural biproducts of aging such as limited mobility, osteoporosis, arthritis, and general aches and pains.

Young and springy 20-somethings new to yoga, and seasoned practitioners alike.

I've also taught and helped people in wheelchairs and with conditions such a parkinsons and MS.

It's a wide range.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise them to get on the phone with the teacher first if you can, and get a feeling for them. I would say, look for a teacher who has at minimum 5 years teaching experience, especially if you are working with injuries or health concerns.
