For ten years Natasja has been leading the 200 hours yoga teacher training program (Fusionmovement Yoga studios)
What makes Natasja's 200 hours training stand out from others ? Natasja has over the years continued her own personal development as a teacher by furthering her knowledge of yoga and travelled to India to study with a Himalayan - Yogic vedantic yoga teacher; Anand Mehrotra from Sattva Yoga Academy. Yoga is not just about the physical postures, in fact it is only a very small part of the actual path of Yoga. If we as teachers only focus on the physical alignment and the physical benefits of yoga we have a very lopsided approach. The purpose of yoga is not to sculpt the body and contort the body into advanced complex postures, no its true purpose is the to transcend body consciousness and one's identity of primarily being the physical body. Otherwise we have missed the entire point of yoga, which ultimately is about leading oneself back into a state of unification to one's true nature where mind, body and spirit are in complete balance and alignment. Therefor Natasja's teacher training program has the potential for you to experience immense personal growth, transformation and evolution and it is in that experience you will be able to inspire your students due to your own inner experience to the wisdom. The 200 hours RYT  program is focused on how to teach and embody Vinyasa (Flow Yoga) and Hatha yoga , and has a strong focus and attention on practicum as well we dive deep into the yogic wisdom of the eightfold path, anatomy of the physical and energy body (prana, chakras, nadis) , mudras, pranayama, kriya, Ayurveda and meditation. We also cover specialty areas such as older population, pre-and postnatal yoga and children's yoga. We are very proud to share that 99% of our graduates work immediately upon graduation as a registered yoga teachers.

    This training was exceptional and Natasja the owner made so many creative adjustments due to Covid and the opening and closing of in person training keeping students engaged, continued their education and ultimately delivered a fantastic training program. I would highly recommend Natasja Payne as your educator and mentor.

    Students leave the program with so much knowledge of the practice of yoga, it’s philosophy and how to teach it meaningfully and safely. It was a very valuable 6 month learning journey for me.

    Completing the 200 hr RYT, I feel well versed in the foundations of yoga and confident that I can create an intelligent, dynamic class that addresses asanas, pranayamas and kriyas. I loved the course and all the layers of practice Natasja shared with us.

    It was an absolutely amazing experience learning at Fusion Movement Yoga. Natasja is a very intuitive teacher and offers an holistic teaching style that resonates with the learners. Her ability to connect the content of the classes to an applied setting is at its highest level. If you are looking for somewhere to get a complete education on the yogic path and the opportunity to gain confidence and comfort in teaching, then Fusion Movement Yoga should be your only choice.
