Natalie has been a student of yoga for more than 20 years. She has studied copiously with world-renowned teachers and is a graduate of the Yoga Therapy Program at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where she used to live. She was a successful established radio personality and producer in the Spanish media when she found herself suffering from chronic lower back pain and other conditions.
She was able to heal herself through her yoga practice, and decided to dedicate her life to helping others restore their vitality. It is important to Natalie to be inclusive and bring yoga to disenfranchised populations like inner-city children, incarcerated youth and low-income mothers. She has taught extensively in schools, shelters, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, churches, and yoga studios for many years. She has been living and practicing in Ashland, Oregon since 2008. She was the Movement Therapist with the Pain Resiliency Program in Oregon where she helps people with Chronic Pain increase their quality of life through movement therapy and mindfulness techniques. She specializes in Chronic Pain, Posture, Pelvis, Spine and Autoimmune diseases.
Lindsey graduated with Honors from the University of Oregon in 2007, receiving her Bachelor of Science in Sociology, with an emphasis is Environmental Sustainability. She spent the first two years out of college volunteering her time with Americorps, building and restoring trail in national parks, before pursuing her passion for teaching yoga.
It all started with a yoga meditation ‘retreat’ and then she went on to receive her 200 hour teacher training from Rasa School of Yoga in Costa Rica, studying the art of Power Yoga under Carolina Vivas. After a couple of years teaching, she was drawn to the Astanga practice and made her way to India to study with Mark Anasari to receive her second 200 hour training certificate. While grueling, Lindsey feels some of her greatest advancements within her practice stemmed from this time honored traditional practice. Her most recent training was completed at Buddhi Yoga in San Diego working with the fabulous Goldie Graham. Combining all of her training’s her teaching style has become a progressive combination mix of Ashtanga and Power Flow- you can expect to sweat, laugh and breathe in her classes – plus listen to some great music!
