Natalie Garih is the founder of Smarana Healing and is a Somatic Pranayama Breathwork Facilitator, Energy Practitioner, and Reiki Master.
Natalie graduated from The George Washington University with a B.A in Human Services and Social Justice. She has trained with David Elliott, Dr. Scott Lyons, Lisa Levine, Jillian Pransky, Katie Down, Jessica Caplan, Erika Spring, Zuna Yoga and a number of amazing teachers that contributed to her canvas of healing.
Natalie believes that in order to heal, we must work with the body in order to cultivate self-remembrance and come back to our core and most authentic selves. The body stores what the mind suppresses and blocks. We are in a world where we numb our inner chaos. Our bodies are screaming for help through psychosomatic illness and chronic pain. By using somatic practices, embodiment, breath work, sound, restorative yoga postures, meditation, Reiki and supportive conversation, she gently guides and reveals deeply buried histories or beliefs and helps unveil and encrypt the messages of the physical body. From one-on-one sessions to group work and healing retreats, Natalie creates a safe space for the body to feel in order to heal.
