Born in Oceanside California, Natalie began her yoga journey at the age of 15. Health obstacles made it difficult for her to perform regular P.E in high school and yoga was an alternative. Her journey only continued from there. She practiced yoga consistently throughout college and began to explore other styles such as acrobatic yoga and yin yoga. It was not long before she was introduced to Hot Yoga at the Hot Yoga Club studio. After 3 years of practice and donating her time to Karma Crew at the studio, she became Head of Karma Crew. Shortly after, she began her 200-hour certification study, and became an instructor for sculpt and restorative at the Hot Yoga Club studio.
