Natalé first discovered yoga in London, England around 1998. In 2003 she decided to give up everything as she knew it to embark on a journey to India to seek higher truth. That quest continues until this day. She has spent months at a time over the years living in ashrams and in remote holy places on intensive silent retreat exploring the deeper philosophical, contemplative and devotional practices as well as in Mysore, studying at the KPJAYI (the Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute).

Natalé began teaching yoga full time in 2004 and has studied and taught yoga in Nepal, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan. 

She began teaching in Los Angeles in 2007 for various local studios and has maintained a daily Mysore program in the South Bay since 2010. 

After over 25 years of practice and 19 years of teaching, Natalé continues to believe that Ashtanga Yoga provides the remedy for all of our physical and mental afflictions. It is potent and transformative when practiced correctly without watering down the magic. Natalé follows the method precisely as prescribed by her teacher, R.Sharath Jois.

Natalé has lived in many places and as such has had the privilege to study with numerous esteemed, insightful teachers for whom she is extremely grateful:  Noah Williams, Dr Chris Chapple (who allowed her to learn and sit in his Sanskrit translation group at LMU over the years), James Buktevich, Dominic Corigliani, Russell Case & Sharon Moon. She is particularly indebted to Marisol Kucharek (her first teacher) and to Clive Sheridan (not of the Ashtanga tradition) who remains a huge inspiration & loving guide who first drew her to India and alit her thirst for liberation. 

Natalé offers her deepest pranams to R.Sharath and to this paramparā that he with so much kind wisdom and grace dedicates his life to maintain:
She is humbled to have received his blessing to teach and to have had the experience of assisting him in Mysore.

“Discipline, self-study and surrender to the Divine (and to one’s teacher) are the acts of yoga”
