Welcome! My name is Natalie van der Wal. I have experience in teaching yoga, dance and aerobics for more than 15 years. I listen to and look at my students during class to adjust the intensity level accordingly. I aim to spread positivity and enthusiasm in my classes, as well as strength, flexibility and peace. I hope to see you soon in one of my classes!
Love & Light, Natalie
YOGA – VINYASA FLOW– YIN YOGA
I teach both dynamic yoga (ashtanga vinyasa/vinyasa flow) as well as very slow paced, meditative yoga (yin yoga). In vinyasa yoga, the movements move fluidly from one into the other. Your breath is very important, it guides your movements. You typically stay in a pose for about 5 breaths and move into a new pose. In yin yoga you will relax both your body and mind and stay in poses for about 3-5 minutes. Yin yoga is a restorative form of yoga and a perfect complement to your dynamic life or dynamic sports. You will recharge your battery and heal your body. Vinyasa yoga is perfect for those that like to move a bit more during a yoga class and enjoy both an exercise as well as relaxation. My students describe me as a very ‘zen’ and positive person. I aim to spread both qualities to my students.
DANCE AEROBICS – POLE DANCE – ZUMBA FITNESS
I teach different dance classes and workshops. In my classes I alternate between slow and fast rhythms with many different Latin-American movements as well as pop and jazz dance. I can teach classes to beginners as well as improvers.
