Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Natalie fell in love with yoga when she and her sister discovered a small studio after moving to the island of Kauai. Inspired by the focus, joyful expression, and sweet movement – the two girls began to practice every day. After many years of traveling – moving and flowing whenever and wherever she could – Natalie pursued her dream of teaching. Her classes are a playful and challenging exploration of the body and spirit through movement and breath, cultivating the fearlessness of living with an open and courageous heart. She humbly gives thanks and gratitude to her many great teachers and inspirations including D'ana Baptiste, Adam Ballenger, Sianna Sherman, Shiva Rea, her lovely sister Annie, and more. Natalie and her husband Lyf opened Lotus Leaf Yoga in September, 2008.
