The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.
-B.K.S. IYENGAR


The seed of Dharma, of Buddhist philosophy, was planted by my parents in early childhood, but my personal holistic journey matured in 2010, with my first trip to India when I discovered yoga as a holistic practice. Devotion to the practice brought awareness towards my old unhealthy patterns and enabled me to look deeper for a different approach to life. This began my studies in yoga, holistic nutrition and the underlying causes of those old patterns. I travel to India regularly to study yoga with my teacher, Sharath Jois. I honor the lineage by daily practice and by teaching at Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver and recently in Squamish.

I strongly believe curiosity is key to become our own healers. 

I am passionate about the healing properties of herbs and foods and also by the power of awareness that a daily yoga practice brings to life. I strongly believe education is the key to become your own healer. Once you are able to listen to your body, you can identify unhealthy patterns, be aware of their effects and overcome them by building new healthy ones.


Natalia Correa, KPJAYI Level 2 Authorized and AYV teacher, describes in her words, the roots of her devotion, her gratitude towards her teachers and her love towards the practice.
