Meet Natalia Tabilo

Natalia Tabilo, Warrior Flow School

1- In less than a minute, tell us who you are and why we keep hearing good things about you.

I’m Natalia Tabilo, Chilena, Latina and the Founder of Yoga for All Bodies. I live with chronic pain, chronic migraine and in a larger body. And my mission is sharing the message that yoga truly is for all bodies and all minds!

2- What inspired you, if any, to join the Warrior Flow 200-Hour Yoga Training’s faculty? 

Because I believe and resonate with the message and passion that the Warrior Flow School has! I believe that yoga is for everybody and it needs to be shared in a way that is inclusive, accessible and trauma-informed 💖

3- In simple words, what does yoga mean to you?

Yoga is such an important way of life, I always say that yoga has helped me become my own best friend and has provided tools to feel at home in my body and mind.

4- What is the main difference between learning yoga now and when you took your first yoga training?

The main difference is that now I see a real and bigger commitment to opening the heart and mind to diversity, when I first started practicing it was like yoga was one size fits all and you had to keep up.

5- In your opinion, why is this a key moment in time to learn yoga? 

Because people are living in an automatic mode, in a fast-paced life, disconnected from themselves and others, and we need community, we need connection.

6- Who would you be without yoga? 

I think I would be someone who doesn't feel at home in their own skin, I wouldn't have the tools to ride the waves of life and the waves of living with invisible disabilities.

7- Who were your role models? And what pushed you to learn and become who you are today?

My biggest role model is my Grandma, my Abuelita, she was a fierce woman, ahead of her time, and she taught me to work hard and never dim my light.

8- What were the pivotal roadblocks and challenges you encountered along the way that helped you define your path?

Feeling left out and unseen in yoga spaces because the teachers didn't have the tools (or weren't interested) to serve larger bodies, people with chronic pain and of course my students! They have informed and shaped the work I do with Yoga for All Bodies.

9- What can we all do right now to make this world a better place?

Lead with our hearts and empathy, we need to think beyond our own story and experience.
