Natasha Vaz CYT-200, Personal Trainer

Natasha Vaz completed her Yoga Teacher Training through Shamanic Yoga Institute in Squamish and is excited to share her practice on Bowen.  Having studied the traditional Yogic texts as well as First Nations teachings, she brings a blend of precision, story-telling and nature based intention to her classes.  She is also a Certified Nutritional Practitioner specializing in digestion, metabolism, food culture and whole well-being. She brings more than 14 years of experience in Yoga and the Health and Wellness Industry. Having also completed her   Ayruveda for Western Practitioners course, she wholly believes that healthy is an everyday practice. Her upbringing on the Mediterranean diet has given her a unique insight into health.

She practices clinical nutrition at Equinox Integrative Wellness in Caulfield Village and also hosts seminars and talks at the Orchard and co-fascilitates retreats on Bowen Island.  After changing career paths from finance to wellness she discovered that food and it’s culture, effects, and knowledge has always been a creative outlet and a nourishing way of life.
