My name is Natalie and I am a lover of all things health, yoga, and fitness. My yoga journey began when I was in high school, but I fully committed to deepen my practice 5 years ago. I was hopping around different corporate jobs, dreaming of all the places I wanted to travel. One day I woke up, and I told myself I’m going to start living the life I truly desire. So I booked my ticket, and shortly was off to Bali for my yoga teacher training. I wanted to further deepen my practice and understanding of yoga so I could share the spiritual and physical benefits with others! I love teaching Yin and deep stretch yoga, and especially love a good Vinyasa sweat! I am excited to share my love for yoga with the Peaceful Warrior Wellness community!
Class Time: Tuesday and Thursday at 7:15 pm-8:15 pm

My love of health, wellness and fitness began at a very early age. I grew up playing competitive soccer and softball until college where I started to focus more on overall strength and fitness with a passion for nutrition. In my 20 years as a fitness professional and exercise physiologist I have gained an enormous amount of experience and knowledge of working with all different populations. I have a Masters Degree in Kinesiology from California Baptist University where I honed my skills as a wellness coach. My professional background for the past 13 years has been working with Law Enforcement, Fire and Military personnel. I not only work with them at the start of their career during their training academy, but throughout their careers focusing on improving and maintaining not only their fitness, but their mental and emotional wellness as well. As we all know, addiction can affect anyone at any stage of life and I feel fortunate to play a role in the healing and strengthening process of overcoming addiction and mental illness. My focus for every individual I work with is to find what motivates them and to help them see how strong they truly are.
