Nataraj

Nataraj has been an adrenaline junkie since the day he was born. Whether it was riding his big wheel down any hill he could find as a kid, playing soccer, snowboarding, dancing to house music, mountain biking, rock climbing, running or competing in triathlons, physical movement has always been a way for him to quiet the mind and tap into his inner Self.

After his second back surgery from snowboarding, he found his way to yoga as a way to try and prevent back injuries from occurring in the future. Initially, Nataraj’s interest in yoga was purely as a means to become more flexible and increase core strength. After a life-changing awakening experience in the fall of 2012, something in his heart told him there was more to yoga he needed to learn.

In January 2013 he enrolled in his first 200 Hour teacher training. A few months later he saw a screening of The Highest Pass at a film festival in Washington DC. The yoga teacher from India featured in the documentary, Anand Mehrotra, spoke after the screening. Anand’s words and fierce presence resonated with Daniel on a very deep and personal level.

In April 2014 Nataraj attended Sattva Yoga’s Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India, led by Anand earning Daniel his RYT 500. Since then he has been back to India several times to continue deepening his practice under the guidance of Anand. He also completed Baptiste Yoga’s Level One Training in February 2015.

“The Sattva practice resonates so deeply because I feel like I’ve been doing it my whole life. As a teacher, I love teaching this practice because it gives me the freedom to experiment and I get to incorporate two of the things I love most in life: music and physical movement. My goal as a teacher is to provide space for all of us to return to our youthful, childhood innocence – loving unconditionally and having fun.”

Cathy Connors

Cathy loves yoga and has dedicated her life to sharing this powerful practice with others.  She started her career as a psychologist and began her spiritual journey in her early 20’s.  But it wasn’t until 2009 that she started teaching yoga and the practice “took over her life”.  In 2014 she traveled to India for the first time and met Master teacher Anand Mehtrora – the moment she locked eyes with him, tears fell and she knew her life was forever changed.

Since that first trip she has learned to let go, surrender, trust, love, soften, play and open to all this beautiful life has to offer.

Cathy is a dedicated practitioner and that is where her teaching begins. She loves combining the freedom of a vinyasa practice with the power and grace of the Sattva Journeys. When she teaches she never quite knows what will arise, but she trusts in the beauty of the moment knowing it will be authentic, raw, connected, and full of grace.

She is so excited and honored to be a part of the Sattva Summit and is looking forward to sharing and connecting with all of you.
