Hey, beautiful people. I’m Nate Thomas. I’m a Vinyasa Yoga teacher with a strong focus on the anatomy and biomechanics of yoga. My teacher instilled in me a belief that action is more important than the form inspired by abyhasa – steady effort in the direction you want to go.
I absolutely love to guide and educate people about breathing. Stepping beyond traditional pranayama, I teach a combination of ‘old & new’ in an experience like no other!
In my personal practice I find enjoyment in using poses to build both strength and flexibility and am drawn to arm balances and inversions. This carries through into my teaching style, as I love to be able to take practitioners to their own perceived limits and then show them that they have more to give.
The shala is a place, in my opinion, for self-enquiry. I endeavour to encourage this through a deep focus on pranayama, a blend of challenge and ease, stillness and the odd dad joke or two. Expect to sigh loudly, breathe weirdly, OM, giggle, sweat and focus.
I look forward to having the honour of teaching you and i’ll see you on the mat.
