About the teacher trainers:

Natalie st hilaire

Natalie graduated from University in 2005 with a commerce degree and went to work in professional software sales, which she excelled in for over a decade. During the same period she healed herself of anxiety and depression through yoga, specifically Baptiste Yoga.

Before quitting her day job, Natalie had taught 4 yoga teacher trainings and completed the most advanced teacher training offered by the Baptiste Institute. She now mentors new and experienced yoga teachers and has been doing so for over 5 years, including mentoring a yoga teacher in Africa for 3 years. She is the owner of Yoga Nova Studio and Nova Coffee House, a Tier 3 certified Baptiste Power Yoga teacher and holds an E-RYT500 designation with Yoga Alliance.

Natalie’s vision for Yoga Nova Studio is that it becomes a place of support and empowerment for others to live into their own vision of their lives and explore their highest potential.

Will martin

Will Martin is a Tier 2 certified Baptiste Power Yoga teacher with over 1400 hours of teacher training experience with the Baptiste Institute and over 1200 hours of classroom teaching experience. He is currently in advanced teacher and leadership training with the Baptiste Institute, holds an E-RYT200 designation with Yoga Alliance, and has also completed Strozzi Institute's School of Embodied Leadership training program. 

A former competitive and highly accomplished whitewater kayaking athlete, Will reluctantly turned to yoga when he became desperate and tired of living with chronic back pain from kayaking injuries and discovered yoga as his only option for pain-free exercise. Along with making a full recovery from his injuries, he became intensely interested in Baptiste Yoga when he underwent his own profound and radically life-altering transformation that totally upgraded his experience of life.

Will holds a degree in civil engineering but left this career to pursue his dream of an adventurous, bold and explorative life. He is deeply passionate about people living big and extraordinary lives and loves to empower people to do this.

For the past 9 years she has worked in a strategic business development role for an international engineering and technologies firm in the municipal water space, where she has been able to follow her drive to support sustainable resource management. Logan started practicing yoga over 10 years ago and was immediately hooked on the physical practice but it wasn’t until she was introduced to Baptiste Yoga that she awoke to the boundless possibilities in her life beyond the physical asana.

She became determined to learn more and has since taken her 200 hour training with Natalie St Hilaire, attended Baptiste Institute's Level 1 & 2, Art of Assisting and Advanced Art of Assisting programs, and is currently enrolled in the Fit to Lead Program with the Baptiste Institute. Throughout her trainings Logan has developed a set of tools that enable her to actively create the life she seeks, and her greatest passion lies in sharing those tools with others to empower them to take the lead in creating their biggest lives.
