Testimonials It was the final cure to my long-term allergy problems, by showing me how to balance out my acid/alkaline levels. After 17 years of Hatha yoga and multiple injuries it has shown me how to work gently with myself, yet reach deep into my inner substance to challenge my hatha yoga practices. The 7-day chakra retreat totally energised me and put me in place, a great foundation for a deeper personal home practice of meditation and asana. Natalie's approach of teaching incorporates and harnesses the disciplines and energies of yoga whilst also accommodating the practicalities of our busy 21st century lifestyles. Andrew

Natalie was my first yoga teacher, who I am so grateful for the depth, and lightness, and knowledge she passed on. Natalie's chakra retreats stand atop the top of my retreat list. They are sincere, fun, creative, educational, rejuvenatimg and truly truly blissful in a universal sense. The experience of real connection with myself and the world that I am part of was extraordinary. Returning from retreat, was literally like being born anew (NO Joke!!!!)- everyone, everything was like a sensory explosion - sights, smells, sounds, ,,, I am forever grateful for the opportunity to participate in one of Natalie's retreats and classes.
