Natasha Harding, The Village Yoga

Village Yoga in Bude, Cornwall

YOGA has many health benefits and is as good for the body as it is the mind. It comes from the word ‘union’ and has been practised for thousands of years originating in India. There are many forms of yoga with ‘Hatha Yoga’ being the most well-known in the Western World.

Village Yoga was founded by Natasha Harding in 2006 after she qualified with the Yoga Alliance. Since humble beginnings Natasha now teaches many people a week specialising in hatha yoga for adults and pregnancy yoga.

Natasha is passionate about yoga and the many benefits that a regular practice can have upon the individual. If you’ve often toyed with the idea of having a go but are not sure it’s for you then try a class and see if you like it. Natasha’s classes are flexible and operate on a pay-as-you-attend basis so there’s no pressure to continue if you don’t want to.

“I’d like to bring yoga to the masses” Natasha says, “I love it when my students tell me that they get their best night sleep after one of my classes, or that that knee injury they’ve had for years is suddenly better.

“There is often the assumption that only young, flexible people can do yoga – but it’s not true.

“Yoga is for everyone and can be enjoyed by all.”

In addition to teaching yoga, Natasha is a freelance journalist, has written two books, From Bump to Baby and YogaMamma – and created some children’s yoga apps.
