Beginner’s Expert: Natasha Rizopoulos

Ashtanga yoga teacher Natasha Rizopoulos is the star of Yoga Journal’s Beginner’s Step-by-Step video series. She is a senior teacher with Yoga Works and has studied with K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India.

Natasha loves teaching beginning students for the enthusiasm and earnestness they bring to class. “We all need to try and incorporate that early eagerness and receptivity to instruction into our practice, no matter how experienced we become,” she says. “It’s that ‘beginner’s mind’ that allows us to learn and grow.”
