While she was smoking a cigarette and drinking a martini at Life Café in New York City, David Life (co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga) double-dared Natasha to come practice at their studio on Ave. B. In 1986, she became one of their first five students and studied with David and Sharon for a decade. Here she met Krishna Dass who introduced her to her love of Kirtan.
Lady Krishna is a “Bhakti Baby”—an avid devotee of the Mother. She is said to have three mothers: her own (Dada), Amritanandamayi and Karunamayi Ma.
In 1995, Gurunam read her palm in a NYC coffee shop and gave her permission to teach Kundalini Yoga. Then she changed coasts. Among the first students at the then newly opened 8 Limbs Yoga Center on Capitol Hill, Natasha started a Kundalini yoga class which evolved into her current meditation group on Thursday nights. She was initiated into meditation in 2001 by instruction through the lineage of Shri Shivabalayogi and was initiated to give initiations by Shivabalananda in 2004. Natasha is an artist and front woman for the band Lady Krishna’s Peppermint Lounge as well as a Reiki practitioner and certified Yoga instructor.

She hopes everyone will begin their meditation practice NOW.
