through the body, connect to soul

Vinyasa II


This class is taught by:

Natalie Wiggins

RYT-200, ND
As a Naturopathic Physician, Natalie has a significant interest in healthy living. That interest led her to take her first yoga class over 20 years ago, and she has been cultivating her yoga practice ever since. Yoga has been integral in nurturing 3 healthy pregnancies, recovering strength and range of motion following injuries, managing life's stressors, and deepening overall awareness. Initially charmed by the challenge of the physical postures, and the blissful feeling of moving through them; it is the mental training that fuels her daily practice. Her love of yoga led her to pursue further training to become an instructor, in order to share her passion with others. Natalie has a deep appreciation for all that yoga can offer, and her desire as an instructor is to spark that same appreciation in her students by leading them through thoughtful sequences, providing a balance between working up a sweat and mindful, moving meditation, while staying rooted in tradition.

Justine Schwab

RYT-200
Since Justine began her journey into teaching in 2015, every direction she turns she meets inspiration and motivation to remain on this path. She began her yoga journey 9 years ago, and after 5 years of falling in and out of her practice, she found consistency and devotion through her discovery of Self. It was the transition of shifting her experience of yoga from a purely physical practice that happened in a class, to something she carried with her in each moment. Breath, awareness, movement. Her curiosity about the workings of the mind, our relationship with ourselves and our bodies, and the transformative impact of yoga drove her to take the leap she had always feared to take, and in August of 2015 she left the country for the first time to complete a 200-hr training in Costa Rica. Through consistent teaching since, personal practice, various healing modalities through White Raven Center, and an insatiable hunger to discover more about the human experience, she has found a teaching style that combines building a relationship with the body, mind, and spirit, and challenging ourselves to settle into the comforts and discomforts of the constant ebb and flow of life. Her time spent at Deha Yoga has been central to the teacher she is today, and the opportunities and growth it has offered to her journey is irreplaceable. Her heart is truly present in all she teaches.

Mandy Morell

For the past year Mandy has been finding her yoga legs on the high seas aboard a Norwegian tall-ship, which was circumnavigating the globe! Daily practice and a weekly yoga club for the students gave her a new respect for standing postures and patience. Prior to this she was teaching yoga in Kathmandu Nepal, but her love of yoga began in a hot room on a cold night in Anchorage, Alaska. She took her first yoga class in 2009, but didn't really discover her love for the practice until her high school students convinced her to started a yoga club in 2010. This was her first yoga family.
She received her 200 hour training in the beautiful city of Rishikesh, India, on the holy River Ganges, and has had the gift of practicing with people from all over the world throughout her travels.
Mandy brings her high energy and her love for music into her classes, creating a dynamic rhythm to the practice. Mandy believes yoga is integral for physical and mental health, and believes in the power of yoga to rehabilitate. She hopes her students enjoy a good sweat and allow themselves to laugh out loud in each class.
A vinyasa flow practice where we explore all the usual postures (sun salutes, the warriors, backbends, hip openers) in a fluid and creative way. This is a practice where you can lose yourself in the simple rhythm of linking breath with movement. Experience with "flow" yoga is highly recommended as the pace is a bit quicker and more challenging postures are taught (arm balances & inversions). 80 degrees.
