About me

I believe
… that practicing Yoga is about much more than body’s flexibility
… that we’re all Divine and our lives have a purpose
… that our difficulties and sadness are as necessary as our triumphs and joy
… that we can change anything we want in our lives, so long as our desire is greater than our resistance to changing.

Nathalie started with Hatha Yoga in 1992 at a Buddhist center in Brussels. Yoga resonates with many aspects of her personality and her spiritual quest for softness, flexibility, precision, non-violence and introspection.

For over 18 years she studies the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo for which she yearly goes to India. In addition, she practices weekly, other types of Yoga: Iyengar for its precision, Yin because it helps her to release tensions and prepare for meditation.

She deepen her Yoga practice by regularly following  teacher trainings and workshops: Raja Yoga with Sari Schnitfink; Yin/Yang Yoga with Sarah Powers, Joe Barnett, Anat Geiger & Marcel van de Vis; Hormonal Yoga Therapy with Kathy Wolf; Prana Yoga Flow with Max Strom; summerstage ViniYoga with Paul Meirsman.   She has been accepted for an Insight intensive deepening level training with Sarah Powers that will start in 2020.

She invites you to practice yoga with mindfulness, gentleness and respect. Nathalie encourages you to look inside and work on yourself, so you come to balance both physically and mentally.

Since 2012 she organizes with passion and enthusiasm yoga retreats in Europe and India. During these retreats is the emphasis on Yoga, meditation, conscious living.

“All life is Yoga” from the Indian yogi Sri Aurobindo is her motto in life.
