Get to know your teacher – Natasha Q&A

Why do you teach Yoga/What does Yoga mean to you?

I am very passionate about the Yoga. For me it is a way to learn about myself, a way to connect with my inner wisdom, a way to keep my body, mind& spirit healthy and tuned.

Yoga is a philosophy, which I am learning to live by.

I want to help people to discover and experience different sides of yoga, which will make life healthier and richer. Through yoga I want to inspire people to find their inner peace.

Tell us about your classes (pace/style/specialism)?

The different styles of yoga I can teach include Ashtanga, Rocket and Vinyasa flow.

Flow and Therapy yoga – is based on Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, a traditional and very powerful practice. In Sanskrit it is called “Yoga Chikitsa” meaning “Yoga Therapy”, because of the cleansing and toning effect it has on body and mind. A dynamic flow created by synchronising the breath with a specific series of postures produces intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that in turn detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body and calm mind. Prepare to sweat! 🙂
We would recommend having a small towel with you during the practice.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the Sanskrit word “Vinyasa” means “arranging something in special way”. It is graceful and energising practice where the breath linked with movements and these movements are linked together creating smooth and continuous dance-like flow, which helps you to stay in the present – moving meditation. Vinyasa Yoga improves body and mind awareness, builds strength, flexibility and balance.
