Natalie began her journey with the Vedic sciences of Ayurveda & Yoga with her own self-healing. She was first exposed to the powerful and inspiring teachings of Ayurveda in the sacred land of Nepal during an immersive Yoga Teacher training course.
Having consulted western doctors, therapists and psychiatrists for a variety of her own physical and mental ailments, Natalie wanted to take full responsibility of her health by learning a system which deeply resonated with the frequency of her soul; the complimentary sister sciences of Ayurveda & Yoga.
As she learned and applied Ayurveda & Yoga philosophy in her daily life, she started to witness the radical transformation within herself and her relationships. Natalie enrolled in Mas Vidal’s Ayurveda & Yoga Counselor program, which eventually took her to India for a more intensive study. Still longing for deeper immersion in Ayurveda, she found her teacher, Dr. Vasant Lad, at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she completed the full 2 Year NAMA Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner Program. Upon graduation she returned to India to become a Trained Panchakarma Technician under the guidance of Dr. Lad at his Ashram in Pune.
With faith and determination in following the teachings and guidance of Dr. Lad through the use of custom Ayurvedic herbal formulations, diet, and lifestyle, Natalie regained her physical and mental equilibrium, rooted firmly in the application of Ayurvedic & Yogic principles in her daily life. Through her own healing journey she experienced the power of self-discipline, patience, faith, and the importance of consistent study of Ayurveda. Natalie is determined and inspired to help guide her clients in regaining their willpower, strength, motivation and courage to achieve their personal physical, mental & spiritual goals, and arrive at a place of balance and equilibrium.
Guiding clients in the field of self-knowing, self-awareness, and finding deeper connection with themselves and others while developing self-empowerment, self-love, and self-discipline are pivotal in her clinical practice. Natalie holds a tender and sacred space in her consultations and treatments, radiating utmost understanding, heart-centered compassion and care for each client’s personal journey of self-discovery and transformation. Listening, acknowledging and connecting with her clients, Natalie helps shed insight, clarity and understanding upon the root cause, while carefully and mindfully crafting personalized herbal formulations, diet and lifestyle plans that are unique, manageable, and inspiring. Natalie is deeply honored and grateful to her teachers for providing her the knowledge and tools necessary to become a vessel of healing for her community.
