Natalie grew up in Louisiana and Florida and always loved being active! Her fiery extroverted nature always seemed to draw her to explore all types of physical activities. Natalie's yoga journey began in 2011 when she walked by a local yoga studio offering a 30 day yoga challenge (30 classes in 30 days). Never one to not take a challenge, she went for it! Through the newfound commitment, she found a passion and her soul felt at home. She was drawn to the flexibility and stability yoga offered along with the balance it was creating in her life. She fell in love with how the rhythm of the breath creates a magical dance between the mind and body. The changes that occurred in her life, both physical and mental left her wanting more and it gave her the desire to share yoga with others.
At the time, working in the corporate world, she found herself in a lot of demanding, time consuming roles that allowed great professional growth but left her soul unfulfilled and searching, which led Natalie to embark on a yogic journey for personal growth, through determination, vulnerability, and acceptance. After completing her RYT teacher training here at Infinity Yoga in 2016, she decided to leave the corporate world behind and teach and share yoga with others full time.
Natalie brings a spirited element to her classes and urges students to embody their deepest desires and to leave egos at the door. Her playful nature encourages students to face their fears and to go deep into what moves them.
Natalie also teachers pilates yoga fusion and was certified through our very own Meredith Hesse; she is a certified doula. When she is not teaching she loves hanging out with her husband, and her four boys.
"Yoga is not about touching your toes… it’s about what you learn on the way down."
Natalie Skubic instructs the following:
Pilates Yoga Fusion Flow
Pilates Yoga Fusion provides a challenging practice that will strengthen, stretch and tone your entire body. This heated, energizing practice combines the two mind-body formats in one so you can reap the benefits of greater strength, flexibility and peace of mind. Room Temperature is Warm - between 82-87 degrees.
A slow paced class, designed as a class focused on alignment and adjustments for foundational poses. Also perfectly aligned as the next step past "Beginners", to continue to introduce the foundational elements of yoga. Perfect for anyone looking to continue to hone their new practice (and perfectly suitable if you haven't been to our beginners class yet too!) and excellent for rehabilitation, recovery, or just not feeling up to a power flow on a given day! All levels welcome. Classroom is not heated.
Power to the Core
This class will focus on the core strength activating the deep core line of our body and learning to keep the outer body soft and flexible. Learn to find effort in grounding down through our foundation while drawing the core in and up. This class is WARM (between 82-87.)
Start the day off right! This all-levels class is designed to wake up and energize the body. We will salute sun with a complete practice: the linking of breath and movement, forward bending and back bending, a bit of strength work, and a mild inversion. Feel the benefits of the practice tangibly in terms of energy, alertness, and increased range of motion at the beginning of the day! Classroom is not heated.
Powerful dynamic flowing sequences with music! Many skill levels come to this class so many options are given, however knowledge of sun salutations and solid all around fitness is recommended for this class. Be prepared to sweat and have fun! Classroom temperature is WARM (between 82-87 degrees).
If you are looking for an extra dynamic and challenging flow, please join us for Sharon Caplan's class. You will work HARD and the class temperature peaks around 90 degrees!
