About Nathalie

Nathalie Blondel has been practising Iyengar Yoga for over 35 years, and has been teaching for nearly 20 years.

From one-to-one sessions to very large yoga classes Nathalie uses her wealth of teaching experience to educate and encourage each of her students to develop and deepen their practice.

“Coming to a class is your opportunity to put down your day, focus on yourself and have some fun embracing the serious play that is iyengar yoga alongside the rest of your classmates. Yes you may ache but you’ll leave feeling lighter and calmer” – Nathalie

Nathalie regularly studies at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune (India), and attends workshops and conventions with leading teachers of Iyengar Yoga. She holds a Senior 2 Level Certificate, which qualifies her to do themed workshops and remedial work. Nathalie is an IY (UK) assessor and teacher trainer.

When she’s not teaching or practising you can usually find Nathalie enjoying a strong americano in one of her favourite Brighton & Hove cafes.

What is iyengar yoga?

Yoga is an education. It is a science and an art for improving one’s mental and physical health. In the words of BKS Iyengar, the school’s founder, it is a ‘practical philosophy to be experienced.’ Most importantly, yoga is suitable for everyone.

At all stages of life, the benefits of yoga include enhancing your concentration, breathing, and stamina. It strengthens your immune system, and helps improve both minor injuries and day-to-day aches and pains, as well as long term medical conditions.

To find out more about Iyengar Yoga, go to bksiyengar.com, and iyengaryoga.org.uk for Iyengar Yoga in the UK.

From 14 June until September, we will only be running the beginner’s classes and the general class, as well as all the classes detailed in the temporary timetable above. We do not accept drop-ins, so please contact us to secure a place.

I’m a Graphic Designer so mostly spend my day seated at work. I joined Nathalie’s class after suffering from back pain. I’ve found Iyengar yoga extremely helpful at strengthening those areas. I believe more men should consider yoga as a serious form of physical exercise.

Nik, Graphic Designer



I have attended Nathalie’s classes and workshops over the past 8 years. She is a passionate and knowledgeable teacher. She adapts her classes to ensure those with injuries can participate fully and prioritises safety. I would thoroughly recommend starting or continuing your Iyengar yoga training with her.

I have been going to Nathalies iyengar yoga class for nearly 3 years and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Due to my job as a seamstress my hands are often in pain. Over the time I have been attending her class the pain has been reduced and I can see how much stronger I have become. I can’t really express how much it’s helped me in words.
