Brain Longevity® Specialist Spotlight
Your ARPF is proud to introduce another outstanding Brain Longevity Therapy Training specialist:
Natalie Buster, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, TIYT
Based in San Antonio, Texas, Natalie Buster is a yoga teacher and yoga therapy intern specializing in trauma-informed yoga therapy and trauma-informed vocal yoga. When the pandemic hit, Natalie found a market of retirees who were eager to find a way to stay connected in the virtual landscape while the world was shut down. She co-founded the 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, Lacuna Community in December of 2020 with the mission of fostering connection by using the tools of wellness, creative expression, and personal growth. Lacuna Community is entirely online, and although it draws people of all ages, her primary client base consists of retirees and seniors.
Bringing ARPF’s 4 Pillars to this community seemed like a natural first step. Natalie found that a large percentage of her clients were experiencing isolation and anxiety because of COVID-19. Having the 4 Pillars as a foundation allowed a sense of community and connection to occur. Her clients particularly love (and request) Kirtan Kriya, and most of her classes feature this either at the beginning or at the end.
“Kirtan Kriya particularly speaks to me because of my background in theatre and voice,” she says. “My clients report feelings of peace and serenity after each session.” Kirtan Kriya has found a way into her curriculum for another one of her passions, The Outside Voice Project. The Outside Voice Project directly addresses vocal trauma by utilizing breathwork, yoga, and mindfulness techniques to uncover the authentic voice.
Prior to finding the path of yoga, Natalie performed in the Broadway tours of 42nd Street and Footloose. She spent 12 years as a professional actress in New York City and sang and danced her way through Europe, Asia, Northern Africa, and all 50 United States.
