WE RISE: 28 Day Meditation Program

WE RISE is a 28-day daily guided group meditation practice designed to help us RISE above the turmoil of these trying times, make peace with uncertainty, and embrace inevitable change.Join me at 7am every morning for 28 days to meditate together live via Zoom. Each practice lasts approximately 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for reflection. *Practices are recorded and shared daily, along with support materials, to enjoy at your convenience.


Ritual of Rest is offered as a series of mini-retreats in the comfort of your own home.

Each week you will receive support for at-home self-care rituals including home-made bath salts, face masks and body scrubs; recipes for tonics and treats which facilitate rejuvenation; music, poetry, journaling, and contemplations to re-open the channels to your heart.

I have been studying yoga for 10 years, and in that time I have had some wonderful teachers, but Natalie is one of those rarified individuals who truly gives 100% of herself each time she teaches. She is fully present and she really cares; she has a gracious demeanor, and though she brings a great amount of reverence to her teaching, she also has a lightheartedness about her that I love. I always leave her class feeling uplifted physically and mentally - she is a true inspiration!

Jan Evans

Natalie is such an inspiring instructor. I've witnessed her compassion for those with ranging physical and mental ailments. I've witnessed courage to try things once thought to be a challenge. I've witnessed her insightful connection between mind, body, and spirit. She has demonstrated all of these things with grace and beauty. She has shared her passion with me. I've benefited tremendously from her classes and I am so grateful for having met her.
