Our StoryBody Mind & Core is a manifestation of a great dream. A vision brought to life by the hard work of its founder, family, friends and community. Since 2008, Natalie conceptualized a sacred place; a studio where yoga can positively affect peoples lives and their community. A space where practicing yoga becomes inspirational, enlightening and empowering. A sanctuary to keep lives full of balance, freedom and wellness. A enlivened community where learning and sharing knowledge makes room for fun and relaxation and most importantly, a nurturing, inclusive environment where individuals can be at peace with themselves, experience the freedom to grow and welcome a challenge.
In 2010, after 17 years, Natalie returned to motherhood. By 2012, she and her husband Matt, welcomed their youngest of four children into this world. During that time Natalie found the benefits of Pilates perfectly complimenting her yoga practice. As she prepared for labor and post-delivery, she found new ways to enhance her yoga and pilates journey. With the discovery of TRX, Natalie experienced a new challenge and began to appreciate the triple effects of Yoga, Pilates and TRX. It is through this process the Body Mind and Core concept came to life.
In 2013, Natalie and her husband sent their second son to college and decided it was time to leave their home in California, move "Back Home Again in Indiana" to raise their two youngest children close to family. Courageous by faith, brave with spirit, Natalie and Matt, chose to realize her dream and Body Mind and Core was born.
