Nea is the only KPJAYI level II authorised teacher of Ashtanga Yoga in the UAE. She has made eleven individual trips since 2006 to study at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore. She was authorised in 2010 and during that year was one of the first people to assist Sharath Jois in the morning classes. She has attended two teacher courses through KPJAYI in 2010 and 2014. These courses are designed specifically for authorized/certified teachers to help them better understand the method of Ashtanga Yoga and how to teach appropriately.
Nea has been teaching yoga internationally for the last ten years. She started the first Mysore program in Nagoya Japan where she lived for two years from 2009-10. She has also taught in her home city of Sydney at Jois Yoga (2010-11) and has been a visiting guest teacher at Ashtanga Yoga shalas in Perth, Beijing, Tokyo, Osaka, Moscow, and Istanbul. She moved to Dubai in 2012 and founded Ashtanga Yoga Dubai in 2013.
Nathalie was inspired by yoga from a young age. Her curiosity led her to discovering the traditional practice of Ashtanga yoga when she was 23 years old and she has been a devoted practitioner ever since.
Nathalie completed her teacher-training course in 2012 with Paul Dallaghan. Motivated by this powerful and healing practice, Nathalie made her first trip to Mysore to study with Sharath at the K.Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute this spring in March 2015.
She continues to study with her teacher Nea Ferrier in Dubai at Ashtanga Yoga Dubai. She finds it a blessing to be able to share her love and passion for yoga and to assist Nea at the shala in Dubai.
