“One of the best commitments I have ever made to myself- was deepening my yoga practice. Jurgen and Nattacia Mantei helped peel back all my layers and truly opened my heart to more than breath and movement. A lifestyle awareness, that I am lucky enough to share with my family, friends and students. Stand Up Paddle boarding Yoga (SUP Yoga), is what took my office out onto the water last summer. We explored the dynamics of “Fluid Yoga,” had lots of laughs and a date with Mother Nature.
I am eagerly awaiting the announcement for YTT part 2.”
Ed’s incredible anatomy knowledge and teaching technique were crucial to my understanding of human bodies. His knowledge of anatomy and yoga made his teachings a great combination to help me understand what to look for in students in order to prevent injuries and build an intelligent sequence.
Jurgen and Nattacia’s passion for yoga shines through. They complement each other and their wealth of knowledge is what makes them a great teaching couple. Although the program is called Vinyasa Flow, Jurgen and Nattacia exposed us to a lot of different things that enabled us to go in a many different yoga directions. They also exposed us to a lot of tools to continue on our path of personal growth. They have opened up their hearts and took us under their wings which gave me the confidence I needed.
It has been a privilege being taught by Nattacia, Jurgen and Ed.
I highly recommend this yoga teacher training program.
“I signed up on a whim for the yoga teacher training offered by Jurgen and Nattacia through Soul Hot Yoga, unsure of what I wanted from the training, but something deep inside me knew that this was the one for me. To say the least, it has changed my life!
Jurgen and Nattacia’s spin on yoga, wellness, and the philosophy of the practice is not only well rounded, but also open minded and welcoming to all opinions. They have created a safe atmosphere where we fluctuate between deep intellectual sharing and giddy laughter.
Their technical knowledge of the asanas is unmatched, while their personal passions for wellness inspires others to change. I fell even more in love with yoga and with life, which I didn’t know was possible.
Love you guys,
“I’ve deepened my practice, gained confidence and feel I have a solid foundation of tools and knowledge to teach. Through this journey I have learned how to be my authentic self!” This program is high quality and Jurgen and Nattacia are generous teachers!”
“Having attended Jurgen and Nattacia’s classes I loved their teaching style, how every student mattered in the class.
Thanks to the cues they and the other teachers at Soul gave me, I changed my practice – I’m no longer injuring myself! Soul, and their teachers made me feel accepted and important, like their training wasn’t about being a big moneymaker for them.”
“I entered into my Teacher Training hoping to one day teach, but what I got was so much more. The growth and knowledge that I have received will be with me on and off my mat for the rest of my life.
The teachings that Nattacia and Jurgen gave were given all from their heart and soul (and it was felt every time). Nattacia and Jurgen brought energy, passion and love for yoga to the class every time and it was contagious.
It has been an honor for me to have Nattacia and Jurgen as my teachers, my friends and most importantly, feeling that they are now part of my family.
Thank you does not seem enough.”
“This teacher training provided me with a new direction for my life. It empowered me by providing a safe environment for me to connect with my body and my soul – and form relationships with likeminded people!”
“Yoga teacher training with Jurgen and Nattacia was so much more than an education about philosophy and postures. They created a sanctuary where we were immersed in the true meaning and purpose of the practice of yoga. Although I have not yet pursued teaching (full time nurse) my yoga practice carries me daily. I look forward to obtaining more education and eventually teaching to share this gift with others. I sincerely hope these two excellent teachers will again be part of that journey!”
“It was a great honor to graduate from Jurgen and Nattacia’s Yoga Teacher training. I have practiced Yoga for many years and learned as much as I thought I could yet Jurgen and Natacia’s training program took me deeper into my practice than I ever thought possible. Not just learning about asanas but discovering the entire realm of Yoga, the history of Yoga, the anatomy of Yoga, the life of Yoga and how to incorporate each and every aspect of Yoga into a daily practice.
Jurgen and Nattacia are the kindest most open hearted people and they have developed a master Ashtanga Teacher Training program that incorporates their love and devotion to Yoga. Working through this program from the very first moment we all came together till the very last celebration has forever changed my life. Jurgen and Natacia brought us together as a family, a family of teachers fully prepared to teach and inspire the practice of Yoga.
“I was so excited to start my teacher training with Nattacia and Jurgen! But even from the very first class, it was nothing I had imagined. It was so much more!!! They were our parents and us their children. We became a family.
There was more than just the fundamentals of yoga. More than the book work and the physical work. There was the heart work.
Learning from Nattacia and Jurgen was just the start. We all learned from each other. We learned how to connect with ourselves and we shared our strengths and weaknesses.
I believe this course change my life. It was much needed at a time where I thought I was alone. Turns out, there are many who learned from me and I in turn, learned from them. There’s not enough gratitude in this world that I could show for what this course has helped me become.
Love and blessings,
“The very first time I met Nattacia Mantei I was struck by what I saw as a very unique blend of gentleness, wisdom and passion. She spoke about the work she was doing in her coaching practice and the people she served with the kind of reverence usually seen only in rabbis and priests. Nattacia loves people so deeply that she wants to see them experience true health and harmony in their lives. She clearly provides people with a safe harbor during stormy times and provides a lifeline back to their original state — one of health and harmony.”

“Before working with Nattacia I had been suffering from chronic fatigue for several years, dragging myself through my days, resigned to the thought that my lack of energy was just one of the signs of aging. Nattacia validated for me that life didn’t need to be that way.
With Nattacia’s guidance I had medical testing done to determine the root cause of the issue. She then guided me – one teeny little baby step at a time – as I began making significant changes that never felt overwhelming! Through this fantastic journey with Nattacia I really bettered my lifestyle, and that of my family.
I look back now and am amazed how, within only a couple of months, I reached my health goal of getting my vim and vigor back. I have my energy back along with a real sense of what it is to have health and vitality that I can maintain. I wouldn’t have been able to get there without the help of Nattacia.
I highly recommend, if you have any health issues, talk to Nattacia and let her help you get your health back on track…and keep it there!

“Before I hired Nattacia I felt overwhelmed and unfulfilled, especially in my relationships – with work, my husband, with life in general. I wanted — NO, I needed — to lose some weight but everything I tried felt like another pressure, something else to “deal” with.
Nattacia’s understanding and experience provided the safe place I needed in which to be open and honest about what really needed changing in my life.
Thanks to Nattacia I now have strong coping skills that have brought more balance back into my life. I’m down 20+ pounds and still counting. I feel healthier, more energetic, yet more relaxed and fulfilled. Simply put — I’m so much happier! What could be better than all of that?”

“I not only found a skilled and patient health and life coach in Nattacia but also a wonderful new friend in the process. I love that she contacts me still just to say “Hi” and let me know she’s thinking of me and cares about my health and happiness.
Nattacia is the perfect example of ‘People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care’ – she knows plenty on how to help her clients rebuild their health but what really shines through is how much she genuinely cares!

“I love that Nattacia breaks goals down into easy, simple steps, and I don’t feel like I have to re-vamp my entire life in order to start living healthier.”
“Nattacia is the ‘go-to-gal’ whenever I want to know anything about health issues, life cycles, remedies, you-name-it.”
