Natasha Boldireff, Clinical Somatics Practitioner and Certified Therapeutic Yoga Teacher
I have been a yoga teacher in my beloved Orangeville and area community for almost 20 years. I came to yoga to better understand what was in my way and to discern who I am. In my formative years of teaching I could not help but recognize that many people, myself included, were fighting with themselves on the mat and in their daily lives.
I was impassioned to better understand the struggle I was witnessing and experiencing. In my pursuit of effective solutions, I became a Therapeutic Yoga Teacher, eventually mentoring many yoga teachers, over the course of several years. During this time, I learned how to truly meet and hold a space of healing for another person, as well as how to see what parts of their body were influencing other parts. These skills have proven to be indispensable.
Ever-evolving, I wanted to delve further and get to the root of understanding what was missing for people in their recovery and wanted to learn more about why patterns reassert themselves and what is truly in the way of musculoskeletal movement and holding patterns. Clinical Somatics provided the answers and continues to do so.
My mission is to educate about the brilliant design of our body and the soma’s desire to return to balance. I alchemize principles from somatic exploration and therapeutic movement, apply sound and breath work and draw from the miracles and foibles we encounter in life. We are very adaptive and have the ability to return to move in the way we were designed to move, contracting without pushing, being active without straining or forcing, it is then that we can return to the grace in movement, restful repose and reclaim maximum recovery. To witness your body unfold, and bloom is the greatest gift for you to sense and feel and for me to behold.
I com/passionately and primarily work privately with people of all abilities and ages, who have a wide variety of customized needs. I work effectively and collaboratively with all members of an individual’s health team. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching several classes within the community.
