Facilitator: Natalie Botha


Born in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Natalie did her first teacher training with Africa Yoga in 2007 and registered as a 200Hr Teacher with Yoga Alliance (USA).  Her 500Hr teacher training was completed in Koh Samui, Thailand in 2012 with Michel Besnard. Natalie is currently registered as an Experienced 500 hour Teacher Trainer with over  13 000 teaching hours.  Her style reflects the discipline of Ashtanga and a keen understanding of the Bio Mechanics needed for a safe, meditative practice.  Expect a sense of humour, a sharp eye for detail and huge support for your endeavours.


Her great love for Thailand took her back in 2013 to qualify in Chiang Mai as a level 5 North Thai masseuse. “The perfect synthesis between Yoga and this ancient form of massage incorporates loving kindness and a deep respect for the intrinsic relationship between the balanced body and the relaxed mind.”


Natalie has been registered with Yoga Alliance since 2007 and has conducted 9 trainings to date. This will be the last 200hr as she turns her focus to advanced teachers training.


Testimonial letter from 2018 teacher training:


I just wanted to express my appreciation for the time, effort, love and care that you put into our teachers’ training. You pour your heart and soul into us & it shows. The teachers training has left me well-equipped to teach vinyasa and with a passion to continue learning, evolving & honing the craft.


The amount of time we spent with you in a small group was transformational to both body and mind. I really enjoyed exploring the eight limbs of yoga in more depth than the regular asana practice allows. The bio-mechanical, physical point of view with careful consideration of each individuals’ tendencies and limitations will inform my teaching in the years to come. 

my practice has fundamentally improved, both physically and possibly more importantly, in awareness & perspective. And as a happy bonus, i am really enjoying teaching and hope to do so for some time into the future.

I would highly recommend your training to anyone who wants to either take their practice to the next level or teach.


Thank you very much!
