Nat Atkins

Nat is an Ayurvedic practitioner, Yoga teacher and intuitive healer: passionate about facilitating natural, integrated healing of the body, mind, emotion and spirit.


Nat started practicing yoga in her teens and in her twenties and soon experienced the profound benefits of yoga and Ayurveda while overcoming anxiety, depression, chronic gut imbalance and the other impacts of stress.


Around 10 years ago the transformational impacts she experienced from yoga and Ayurveda lead Nat to leave her corporate job behind and commence a journey facilitating healing for others. Now in her 40’s, Nat lives close to nature in the Dandenong Ranges with her family, and offers integrated health services in Selby and Fitzroy.
