Natalie's mother, who is an avid yoga practitioner herself, greatly intrigued and influenced Natalie onto the yoga journey when she was still at university. After taking just a few yoga classes, Natalie found a sense of joy, tranquillity and balance of mind. Since then, she committed to learning yoga wholeheartedly and to becoming a yoga teacher someday. Shortly after graduating from university, Natalie attended a 200-hour teacher training with Paul Dallaghan at Samahita Yoga Retreat in Koh Samui in August 2018. The course and its ensuing apprenticeship programme was an eye-opening experience for her. In November of that same year, she joined another 300-hour Advanced Vinyasa teacher training in Hong Kong with Jason Crandell through whom she learned a lot about anatomical analysis on the movements and positions of asanas. This acquired knowledge has helped her immensely in guiding students to avoid injuries during practice. Last but not least, the teacher who has inspired and influenced Natalie most – Edward Chow. Edward is a patient, unselfish and enthusiastic teacher in imparting his dexterous skills and knowledge, and his way of teaching has deeply affected Natalie. She is so grateful that she had the good fortune to learn from him and she has become a keen follower to Edward. Natalie's style of teaching is fun and lighthearted, yet challenging. She has a unique way of bringing good vibes and energy to classes through her enchanting voice and bearing. Natalie’s mission in teaching is to see students leave her classes with delight, peacefulness and a desire to learn more in each session.
