About the teacher:

Natasha Lee, commonly known as ‘CocoRed’, is a Movement Artist and Yoga Teacher. Her Career as a Professional Dancer and Choreographer introduced her some years ago to the Movement aspect of Yoga but it was in 2017 whilst travelling around Bali, Indonesia where she was reintroduced to the form on a wider spectrum, encompassing the Spiritual, Holistic and physical realms of the Practice. Two years later she returned to Bali to embark upon her first Yoga Teachers Training. Her initial inspiration to Teach came from a desire to see students who looked like her on the other side. She was used to being the only person of colour in a lot of classes for many years as a student and knew the difference of having someone on the other side who identifies and looks like you. Some years on she continues to teach in London and has taught in places as wide as Bali and West Africa, Gambia where she is currently setting up home. Coco’s classes offer a playful, Creative, Accessible, Spiritual and Alignment Focused style of Practice where her career as a Dancer lends itself well in terms of Breathwork and awareness of the body, cultivating a safe space for all.
