Natalie Forrest PhD, CYA-RYT-E-Gold
Natalie couldn’t have chosen a better last name for herself. It perfectly expresses the importance of nature in her yogic practice (and her life)!
She began learning yoga in the late 90s. She was searching for stability and a deeper understanding of herself, and she found both in yoga. Natalie loved the physical aspects of it, but what really spoke to her was the insight it offered, the contemplation, the techniques to focus her mind and be more present, and the ability to access breath when she needed to. In short, she loved the entirety of yoga. Most importantly, the practice gave her a language for something that she was already feeling. Natalie didn’t fit herself into yoga, she was already a fit.
At about the same time, she began her foray into Applied Eco-Psychology and, after a decade of study, in 2016 Natalie earned her Ph.D in Applied Eco- Psychology from Akamai University. She has written a text and guide-book called Yoga With Nature that she is self-publishing this year in conjunction with an e-course “Conversations With Nature”.
