Natalie grew up in a household that was steeped in spirituality and healing, with a Jungian analyst, a former nun, and a doctor among her immediate family. Her studies in psychology began in performance through years of multi-disciplinary training including: Suzuki, Viewpoints, Grotowski and Committed Impulse.
Natalie took her performance career into movement, touring the world as a dancer for David Byrne and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs before seeking a more immediate connection with community. In 2013, she met Taryn Toomey and became the first employee of The Class and is a Founding Teacher, along with Jaycee Gossett. Through her work in The Class, she has been able to strengthen her own ability to move through trauma and, in turn, help others heal.
Natalie's classes are athletic, vigorous, empowering, and suffused with her natural effervescence. She brings her students face-to-face with their own personal challenges; together, they sweat, they dig deep, and they come out energized — discovering how strong they are, mentally and physically.
Kevin Courtney has dedicated the last two decades to the pursuit of awakening consciousness by focusing on strength, energy cultivation, and mental clarity. He is co-creator of The Bridge Practice, a method which merges Yoga and Qi Gong into one powerful class experience. His work as been featured in Well+Good, Vogue Magazine, VICE, Elephant Journal, and most recently in the new book “Yoga Bodies: Real People, Real Stories, Real Transformation.”
Kevin is on the faculty at the Boston Yoga School, where he teaches philosophy through the art of Raja yoga. He facilitates annually at Bonnaroo Music Festival and offers at Wanderlust, Envision, and Burning Man Arts Festival.
Merging his passion for music and yoga, Kevin is the creator of “Nada Sadhana,” a music project whose debut album, “The Brooklyn Sessions Vol. 1” become one of the most listened to albums in yoga studios across the country. In 2013 he founded INSIGHT - a program which awakens the consciousness of business leaders using the art and science of meditation.
