Natalie Backman

My teaching is a modern take on an ancient tradition. It is an exploration of Tantra Hatha shared through the modalities of Vinyasa Krama, Yoga Nidra, Mantra and Meditation. Practicing consistently with me will help to strengthen and purify the body, calm and stabilize the mind, generate and manage Prana and facilitate reintegration with your higher, sacred self.  A 500-hour Experienced Registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance, I am a life-long student, currently on the path to becoming a certified Parayoga teacher under Rod Stryker. I teach primarily in Malibu, Calabasas and Agoura Hills, sharing yoga with students from 5 to 89 years old through private sessions, studio classes and special events. I lead local and international retreats and workshops for more in-depth study. Additionally, I am the founder of Imagine Fest, the yoga & music festival which benefits Unlikely Heroes, a non-profit organization saving children from sex trafficking.
