Over Nathalie

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

For over 20 years she studied the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo for which she often goes to India. In addition, she practices weekly Iyengar Yoga for its precision and Mindful Yin because it helps her to release tensions and prepare her for meditation.

Nathalie invites you to practice Yoga with mindfulness, gentleness and respect by encouraging you to look inside and work on yourself, so you come to balance both physically and mentally.

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

I believe … that practicing Yoga is about much more than body’s flexibility … that we are 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.
