About your instructors
- Selena Natale: Selena fell in love with dancing at an early age and went on to study at Boston Ballet where she enjoyed the music, the movement, and atmosphere of a studio. As life progressed she lost focus on dancing but the desire lingered in her mind. Then when she was faced at a crossroads a sudden spark ignited her passion to return. But this time looking for something free of judgement. Memories of fitness classes at her mothers old gym resurfaced where she saw yoga classes being taught. Next thing she knew she was practicing at her local yoga studio almost every day. She realized that not only was she testing her strength and flexibility, but her mind body connection as well. She felt balanced and whole as her practice grew. She then enrolled in her 200 RYT at South Boston Yoga and discovered a whole new meaning to yoga. She learned teaching would give her the opportunity to be creative and share her story in hopes to help others. Soon after, Selena started designing various classes, events and fundraisers that brought all types of communities together. Her mission is to reach the most unlikely people and repair any pain they feel in their body or mind with the practice of yoga.
