Natasha Calia (RN, BTEC Level 5, MICHT, Dip BWY, Dip BSY, DipBirthlight, REP).

I was blessed to spend my early adulthood with time and resources that enabled me to travel and immerse myself in different studies, cultures and projects. My key interests were self-exploration and expression through art, crafts, dance, philosophy, psychology, Shamanic studies, spiritual development and yoga.

During my mid-twenties I graduated as a paediatric nurse, working in a variety of clinical and community settings until I eventually specialised in paediatric cardiac medicine. I loved my 10-year career in nursing but I began to find challenging, balancing work in London with motherhood in Thanet. I decided to leave nursing whilst I was at the top of my game, feeling compelled to immerse myself in a self-led intensive retraining programme studying and practising both yoga and massage.

I have worked full time as a body worker and yoga facilitator for the past 12 years and I am as enthusiastic and committed to my practice and study as I was on the day I started. I love working with a diverse client base of all backgrounds and ages, individually, in groups and online.

In 2015 I designed and commissioned a bespoke, sustainable clinic in central Broadstairs that enables me to practice all that I love with greater ease and flexibility. I offer early morning appointments from 8am weekdays, as well as some evening and weekend treatment appointments.

I offer CranioSacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Treatments, Medical Acupuncture treatments, Massage, a whole range of Women’s health practices (visit www.lunargoddess.co.uk ) as well as Yoga workshops and retreats (visit www.intuitiveyoga.co.uk ).
