Natasha Vinson began her study of yoga with a book given by her mother when she was a teen. Her interests in other cultures and spiritual traditions led to her undergraduate degree in anthropology and sociology but began when traveling with her parents, reading, and collecting dolls from around the world. She grew up with sand between her toes, frolicking in warm waves, of the east coast, the gulf of Mexico and Hawaii.
She found her first Bikram teacher, Renee Borst, in Humboldt County in 1998 and was trained to teach the series. She is a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist and was also fortunate to train with Iyengar teacher, Judith Laster, in restorative yoga. She has completed additional teacher trainings from the Kundalini and Anusara traditions. She followed her passion for teaching, to a Master’s in Waldorf Education. She is a former class teacher, currently sharing the Waldorf Remedial work (therapeutic movement, drawing, and painting exercises) at Yuba River Charter School and privately. Yoga and Waldorf both nourish and support the amazing journey of parenthood she has embarked upon with her dear husband, Erik, and their precious boy, Leif.
