A2YT - Natasha Schaffer
Natasha discovered yoga in 1999. When her dance teacher instructed dancers to breathe through a 3 minute "yoga moment" in standing leg lift, something shifted. The leg didn't fall off (strangely), but something else left her system with that sweat; what remained felt so good and whole, that Natasha set out to find "yoga moments" in everything she did.
Natasha became a certified Yoga Meets Dance (™) Facilitator in 2007, leading wild and fun dance journeys. In 2010 she trained with Jonny Kest. She continued to study the many "flavors" of yoga and dance with great teachers - David Williams, Mark Whitewell, Tias Little, Gabrielle Roth. She is currently pursuing 500 Yoga Therapy Certification with Rod Stryker, founder of Parayoga. Rooted in the oldest known system of knowledge - Tantra - this comprehensive approach to yoga weaves breath, movement, philosophy, science, and meditation into every practice. In her yoga classes Natasha strives to deliver complete yoga experience to students of all levels. And… she is still dancing. "Life is a Dancer, You are the Dance"
