Natalie Guevara

Yoga Instructor

Personal Trainer

Life Empowerment Coach

Natalie has a life-long love for movement starting a a young age through dance, gymnastics and later horseback riding.
She quickly developed a passion for health and well-being later in life after giving birth to her two boys, and was able to turn that interest into a career creating Updog Wellness and Fitness.
Natalie became a certified strength coach, personal trainer, and as her passion aligned with purpose became a yoga teacher when she took her love of wellness from purely physical to mental, emotional and ultimately spiritual.
She strongly believes that we should #normalizeexercise, and whether it’s home, in the gym or on that mat she hopes to inspire individuals to enjoy movement with intention and mindfulness.
Through her own personal experience, struggles, growth and development, Natalie knows the magic of yoga and movement and has a strong desire to help others become their true best self, and to find their own alignment.
Upon completing her RYT trainings she has continued her studies at the Asheville Yoga Center, Kripalu, The Embody Love Movement, studying anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff, Seane Corn, and Off the Mat into the World, as well as completing Seane Corns 5-day Spirit Speak intensive..
Through her continued studies of trauma sensitive yoga, Natalie continues to share yoga from a trauma informed lens desiring to help others find self-love, healing and deep connection through movement and breath. She believes that having the access and resources to the life changing practice of yoga is one’s birthright making an effort to provide this practice to as many individuals as possible.
