Will YFS Work for Me?

So many people who join our community have the question "will this work for ME!?"  It's part of human nature to see testimonials and photos of other people doing amazing things and still doubt that it's possible for US.
Hear first-hand from people just like you who had this question, and what was possible for them within just  a couple of weeks of joining the Yogi Flight School family.
The methodology we've developed truly makes these poses possible for anyone.

I am super impressed with your platform. I secretly wished to have a teacher to break the arm balance and inversion poses down for me and just when I asked for it, your ad appeared on my social media. With the introduction video I instantly knew, that joining your platform was the right decision. Your energy and the way you communicate and explain the poses and give wisdom to carry out off the mat.
So the big win that I take away from starting with your program was the Activation of the BANDHAS! BIG GAME CHANGER! I have looked up soooo many tutorials and platforms to explain to me how to get into the poses, and NEVER did I hear it so clearly about locking my bandhas to get into the arm balances. I haven't managed to get into crane yet, but I notice in my practice whenever I lock the bandhas, I reach much higher up with my body. So this gave me such a big light, that I know with practice, I will manage to master these arm balances. And I am very grateful for joining this platform! Thank you and keep up with your great work! Much love and all the best to you and your team.

YFS's crow module was oh so super fun and for the first time I freakin' nailed it and got a 10 sec hold! Also funky side crow came quite easily and

I was like whattaaa hell??

Before this course I thought I could never ever pull of crow or this cool side crow variation you taught (pls don't laugh at my face in these pics, I'm usually not this serous while I'm practising😂).

I've been also practising headstand and the progress was really slow, but you made it click right away😍 Now I can come into a headstand pretty smoothly and hold it for AGES! In 4 weeks I have gained so much strength and confidence that now it's perfectly okay to land on my face every now and then 😊


Before your course, I was definitely in the “how are you even doing that” mindset for a chinstand, and now I get it! I love the fact that you have so many vinyasa strengthening classes for each pose; that’s exactly what I need, I had no idea how to get stronger in ways that would help. One week in and I’m excited to keep going!"

- Carmen L. -


"As for my progress, you can check it out on FB. I just made my first post in the group this afternoon. I’m just at crow pose section in the self-study course, and so far this is THE BEST instruction I’ve received in any yoga class. You’re the best!"

- Sarah H. -


"I think the biggest aha for me so far is just honestly the hands. I am quite fit, strong and flexible, so it has always frustrated me that I just could not do something as simple as crow pose, and that is although I have studied how other people look: the elbows over wrists, leaning in and daring to do it, all of that. Somehow I just missed everything you teach with the hands and it really makes all the difference. Thank for this! All the best from Denmark "

- Malene B. -


"It's been one week since I enrolled and my biggest win is that you are totally legit and more invested in my success than most of the yoga teachers I have met while taking an in-person class. My biggest fear was that I was going to throw money into an internet black hole. 

I officially started on Sunday with the physical work. I managed to catch just a brief moment of air and that feeling of flight while working on crow. So of course I started to cry. On Monday, I got a couple more teeny moments. Your instruction is super clear. I am reminding myself to stack my shit at work at the computer to help with my poor computer posture. I love your targeted warmups that put my body into crow from my back or whatever. 

Thank you. I am really excited to continue this journey to flight."

"YFS has taught me to try to balance my fear and my ego. Focusing on trying things I never thought I could do because I can't is no longer a story that I believe, but also, giving myself the grace, and doing things with joy, so that the fun is not just in achieving the goals, but in the journey themselves."

 

How Quickly Can I Progress?

Progress is fast and furious at YFS! Most of our ninjas unlock poses within hours or days of starting the program. For some, it takes a couple of weeks - but you will be flying faster than you can say "I'm a ninja!" Hear from of our students below who had doubts before they signed up, and were floored to discover how capable they were with the right instruction, step by step training and strategic warmup that the Yogi Flight Method teaches.

Lily L.

I'm having a great time! Just this week I've nailed crow, side crow and Koundinyasana A !! I can't believe it.

Trying not to rush myself but I'm so excited for inversions! I have headstand with a press and pincha and headstand with the wall but I'm looking forward to breaking that fear and coming away from the wall! Looking forward to the Saturday sessions.

 

Tess A.

“So grateful for your teaching Nathania Stambouli! I have made more progress with so many poses in the last 8 weeks than i have in years! Your cues and class structure are phenomenal. The motivation from everyone else here is so wonderful, some days I "can't be bothered" and then I see you all moving ahead and so I get my mat out. feel like I have made some amazing new friends. The progress I have made with pincha in just a few days is making me excited! Big love and gratitude”


"I just had to message you to say wow! I only signed up this morning, did the intro sessions and reached the shoulders section of the crow module and I am holding a crow...only for 8 secs currently (yes counting 😀) and my wrists are sore and arms where my legs are pressing into them which I’m sure suggests not perfect relaxed form just yet but even so....thrilled is an understatement! I am always dubious of online courses but your approach, style and communication is brilliant. Truly professional while fun.
I can’t tell you how long I have been trying to master a handstand (long way off yet) but at last I feel like I have found someone who can truly help me get there. Thank you again and look forward to sharing the journey. Best from London"

- Amy M. -


 "I love Yogi Flight School. Even though it has only been a week I have learned a lot. Working on my crow and in particular I have noticed:

  • Stacking! I never paid attention to stacking so much and I see how it really helps.
  • I always knew to glide forward but not to the point you describe with your finger tips-brilliant.
  • I have a student who struggles to look forward so your suggestions on using your eyes is amazing.

Can’t wait to get further into the classes and hope to join a few lives as well."

- Patricia W. -


"I'm recovering from burn out and yoga is the only thing that has kept me some what sane for the past terrible year. I almost stopped practicing yoga because I felt like I was getting nowhere, feeling sad and washed out until I saw an ad of YFS in Facebook. Got interested, what's this shinanigan and wow, these people are super yogis being able to do all that😳 I thought What the hell, I have nothing to lose anymore so let's give it a try and got blown away immediately🙏
The biggest accomplishment I've made in the past week is to start to understand and trust the Oh shit point! I made it to Crow for the first time in my life in just one week, I just cannot believe it😊 Also this program gave me something to look forward to every day.
So excited to practice with all the Ninjas in your community and cannot wait for module 2!

- Niina M. -


 "Your course is truly amazing. I'm pretty ok at the arm balancing department (though some of the tips are really helpful!) so I mostly joined it for the inversions of which I'm really scared, for some reason.

Last 7 days - well - I've been able to get into and hold Sirsasana A and hold Pincha (close to the wall) for like 3 seconds. I am really excited for the new possibilities and to do things I thought I'd always be too chicken to try.
Lots of love and gratitude to you - for creating this thing and being such an amazing human being."

Ninja Ticia


Listen to Ticia's experience of having to learn how to walk again after her hips would no longer support her body weight. This incredible feat gave her the confidence to commit to learning how to fly, and she is now one of the Yogi Flight School community's most active members.

But my body is too ______ to do this...

One of our most favorite things about our community is that we are made up of people of all ages, walks of life, and experiences. That means that we have ninjas who are flying and overweight. Ninjas who are flying after carpal tunnel surgery. Ninjas who are flying after kicking cancer's ass. Ninjas who are flying after strokes. Ninjas who are flying after hip replacements. Ninjas who are flying in their 50s, 60s, 70s and even 80s! Ninjas who are flying in "tight" and "inflexible" bodies.
The list goes on. The only thing that's impossible is the thing that you decide is impossible.
With the right support, approach, training and BELIEF IN YOURSELF, you are capable of anything, no matter what your body has been through. At Yogi Flight School, we learn to fall in love with what our body can DO - rather than how it looks or how many scars it has.

Jess B.

"I discovered YFS on FB and was immediately attracted to Nathania's energy. I was new-ish to yoga and a complete beginner at inversions and arm balances. I was balancing on my hands within a week, doing headstands aware from the wall within 2 weeks, now working on poses I *never* thought I would be able to do. It is a falsehood that you need to be super strong, super flexible or super slim to do these amazing poses. Good coaching, the right technique and the right instruction is what's needed. I have seen videos and photos of ALL kinds of people (different shapes, sizes, ages, abilities) on the YFS FB Group absolutely smashing their false beliefs. And now I'm one of them! A highly recommended course. If you are willing to put in the practice (and you can go at your own pace. I'm working through it slowly and still making progress), you can do these poses!"

Ifi S. J.

"Little history about me. I am 255 lbs of fluff and butt but have been a yogi in the past. I recently decided to really focus on my health (at the sweet age of 40) and doing a lot of yoga and body movement. I have been practicing consistently for over a month and today I ventured into the modules. I had my in person class for today and summoned enough energy for warmup and crow modules. Honestly I didn't think I would do as well as I did. Crow takes a lot out of me and my core is not as strong... yet. Thank you YFS. I never thought to look down and check that my wrist and elbows were aligned! GAME CHANGER. This might be my kakasana for now but I feel a lot more stable. I did cheat a bit by putting hand grip stuff on my legs since they were slipping (another good reminder to engage core). I apologizes for my lack of clothing. I'm mature and fat no point hiding it."


 "It wasn't an aha moment. It was an OMG I can actually do this moment. Like letting go of a belief that after 2 kids my body didn't move that way. It was more emotional than I thought it would be. Strong momma. I was proud of myself."

- Robyn R. -


"Since starting Yogi Flight School I have been able to do one-legged crow for the first time ever after only just watching the videos in the first module! I definitely did not realise how far forward I needed to lean compared to where I was holding my regular crow pose. This prompt was definitely the biggest thing that helped me to get there as before it all just felt way too heavy, and I was telling myself that I was not 'strong enough'. Your wise words helped me to challenge that narrative and made me realize that I actually am strong enough, I just needed to overcome any fears of falling forward
Really looking forward to progressing through the rest of the modules to see where I can get!"

- Marlisse E. -


“I was just talking to a body confidence coach about some of my issues, specifically about why it bothers me that I don’t think that I “look” as athletic as I am. I mentioned this amazing group, and how this is a place full of wonderful people who focus on what our bodies can do, and who celebrate what each other’s bodies can do.

I just want to say thank you for this incredibly positive space. I know it’s not the best thing in the world that I need external validation of my athletic abilities, but with YFS, I have a wholesome, non-toxic way to receive it.

I also really love that this is a group of regular people doing extraordinary things. I love that there are so many over 50’s in the group, people with no gymnastics backgrounds, people who have recovered from injuries, etc. It really makes me feel like me and my body belong in this space, which is not how I often feel in the yoga or fitness world. You have all given me so much confidence in myself, especially Nathania Stambouli and her genious-designed program.

And who knows, maybe one day I’ll hang in my Handstand and feel so good about myself on my own that I won’t even post about it . #ninjalove”

- Sary V. T. -


"I searched for over 6 months looking for a course like this for my own personal development. I teach hatha and yin yoga ,and arm balances aren't in my practice as i have now come to realise i was commited to being stuck, at 59 i thought i was too old for this course, i am now 8 weeks in and feel much stronger, i am nearly there with my crow pose! I love the honest approach of Nats style of teaching and the course has a raw unpretentious style of presenting which i love. Also the Vinyasa classes in the course are really creative and fun, i am loving just showing up on my mat and seeing where it takes me"

- Sue

I Don't Have Time!

The struggle is real. We all lead busy lives and the idea of carving out time for ourselves is....challenging to say the least. The good news is, you can make insane progress in your arm balance practice in a short amount of time. Putting yourself and your growth first has an impact on the rest of your life and sets an example for everyone around you. We all have the same number of hours in the day, and I don't have to tell you that you find and create time for the things that matter. If you want to fly, you will make this work, too!

Danilla P.

"One of my yoga teachers who has 6 children told me that once she started her yoga training and made time for herself she had more time for her children. I also feel that I’m more present now because I take time for myself. 

I've tried to teach my children some “cool moves” and my daughter and I even participated in a free training with Nathania. 

If you take the time for yourself soon you’ll have the time for your family. It’s important as a parent and a mother especially to have something for yourself. Being a mother should not define you, it’s the most important job that you have but it’s not the only job that you’ll have. 

YFS has taught me that I can accomplish anything if I try and put the necessary time and energy into it. This is a lesson that I can teach my children."

Alicia D.

"Breaking up practices during the day or working on shorter drills during the week have really helped me.

I used to think if I didn't practice for an hour it didn't count.

I just leave my mat out and promise myself at least 15 mins a day. I can do that.

Sometimes it turns into more. Over the years it has gotten a lot easier to fit it in.

Once you love it enough you won't have to try so hard anymore.

I save my longer classes for the weekends."


"I wanted to let you know your teaching is so good that my 8 year old daughter can do a side crow... Incredible! 

YFS has brought me closer to my children. You might think (I thought) that me doing more yoga would take me away from them, be more 'selfish' of me, have less time spent with them etc. In reality, my children are curious about what I'm doing and we spend more time playing together. My 12 year old son can do crow!

It's wonderful, and I'm grateful to you, thank you."

- Lucie C. -


"I wanted to share my experience about self study / live program in case anyone is considering it or feels the same as I did. So I have purchased YFS in Jan 2021. And I have only upgraded in January 2022. After I did the first live class, I realised what I was missing out on. Giving 100%, doing warm ups and having shitloads of fun and learning a new "shit Nat says" each week, not to mention live coaching. I had a bunch of excuses, like how I don't have time and Saturday afternoon is family time and the list goes on. LIVE classes are what keeps me going. Live classes force me to give 100% and to show up. I am a person who skips videos, takes toilet breaks and rests more than needed if not doing it live. I don't think "how will I attend the live classes on Saturday?" - instead it's "I don't have time and I have to make shit work differently because I have live classes on Saturday". And it works if you get your priorities straight."


- Anja P. -


"Some days I luck out and get to practice an hour two. Most days 5-15 min. Occasionally a half hour. And sometimes it’s 5 min in the morning, then ten in the afternoon and then ten more before bed. We all do what we can when we can. But I’ve learned that consistency is key, and even a little bit goes a long way. I just squeeze in what I can. I got this!"

“When I signed up for Yogi Flight School in January, I never thought that I would be achieving as much as I’m achieving. I’ve made so much progress, not just physically, but mentally. To truly understand why Yogi Flight School has had such an impact on my life, you need to know my story. Last year, my brother drowned...After he died, I tried to embrace his attitude towards life. When I signed up for Yogi Flight School, I told myself that I had to give it 100% - no fear of falling or getting hurt, and the things I have achieved are immense. I can do things that I saw my brother do and always wanted to do.”

"Nathania Stambouli, I've never tried this exact sequence or asana before!

Honestly I am a little shocked by how precise and meticulous your courses are Nat! You are like Dr. Joe Dispenza of yogi ninjas, breaking down every aspect of the practical with logical, scientific and anatomical knowledge, using humor and empathy to keep things light!!! Explaining rationally what we are doing and why, down the tiny details where the "devil" hide!

Never had a yoga instruction experience like this before!

Combing the science and spirituality in such a beautiful efficient way! Just beyond grateful! And happy to be a part of the YFS!"

Reema S.

"I want to express my gratitude to this group, this amazing community, to Nathania and her awesome team.

I have drawn so much inspiration from reading all the posts, people sharing their wins, their works in progress, their vulnerabilities and the support that this group has to offer.I taught my first ever class yesterday and that was a huge WIN for me. Something  I never imagined that I would do. I started out on this journey purely for my own personal growth and it has presented me with opportunities to share my love of yoga.

With much gratitude - love and light to all."


"I just want to send you BIG THANK YOU for your program and I am so happy to benefit from this special training, what you are doing by creating YFS is just phenomenal for me. You are helping so many people to overcome FEAR and to be emotionally stronger. Overwhelmed Fear could shadow our mind and could freeze our good actions.

For me, FEAR stops me from experiencing so many asanas in YOGA, especially Arm Balances and Inversion.

Yesterday's workshop, I just cannot believe that I could get into Mukta Hasta Sirsasana, I always thought that I would never do this asana, because I am too old (64 years old).

But your workshop proves me the contrary, I did get into this pose with ease for the first time. It's not perfect but I did not fall from trying for the first time! 

This experience opened my eyes : I at last understand the quote "Don't believe your thoughts" (Eckhart Tolle) 

I am so grateful for your Program and I am sending you and all your Beautiful Staff my whole gratitude for your beautiful Life's mission.

So much Gratitude,"

"I would just like to say a massive thank you to Nathania and my new yogi flight family. I have loved every single second of the last 8 weeks.To think that I very nearly didn't sign up as I thought that there was no way I'd be able to keep up with everyone else. Now, I'm far from mastering any of these poses and I have a VERY long way to go; however, I have managed to do things that I never dreamt possible.

From being too afraid of putting my head on the floor to be able to  go into a headstand with pike legs has been amazing.

This group has been (and will continue to be) like an extended family. Everyone is so encouraging and it's been amazing to see everyone's progress. Long may this group continue and for us to share our accomplishments!

 Nathania, you are an amazing teacher!"


- Cerian S. -


"Before I signed up, I was a bit "uhh, is that really Yoga?" and "is that just my ego that wants to do cool poses"...(and in my YTT, they are all about "the pose is not the goal")? But actually, you are teaching so much more Yoga than most of the Yoga teachers I have had in my life. You are an amazing inspiration - I find it so difficult sometimes to teach beyond the poses. "Meeting people where they are" (what so many people say) does not work at all in my experience, because no one reflects on themselves without encouragement and guidance and most people don't even know that there IS a philosophy behind this at all - I love that you just throw it at people. I think this is the only way to do that. And if they hate it, fine. They will find someone else who does not bother them with inconvenient questions ;)"

- Nike S. -


"I'm an 'all in' type girl....I'm ready for this even though it's going to be a challenge. I loved the intro video I watched so I signed up.... I had no idea how amazing the community would be or how me wanting to know more about inversions could change my life.... THANK YOU!"


- Jodi S. - 


 "I want to take the time to acknowledge and THANK you for the *immense* work you guys do here at Yogi Flight School (Members Only), on one side by taking the time and putting in the effort to keep up with the concerns and the wins of "ninjas to be" around the world, on the other having the courage to be seen as ninjas to be, even in somewhat humbling moments of practice.
I also want to express my gratitude for the absolutely GREAT non-arm balance vinyasas in the library, I'm finding them *extremely* useful in the process of my "ninjification"

Those flows are in many ways humbling (vigorous), enlightening (new and fun transitions) and stregthening (transforming both inside and outside). Growing my practice very fast by repeating them a few times and after some time trying the next ones. It's something I look forward to when I wake up in the morning. I thought you should know.
Honoured to be here."

 "Thank you YFS for making this possible. I have never been able to shake off 25 lbs after hysterectomy in 2018. In just a matter of 7-8 months I managed to bring my BMI to a remarkably healthy level.

I joined YFS at the end of April but started in May. And the program was exactly what I needed to stay focus on what serves me well.

Love this community and love Nat and all the coaches for supporting me and not letting me dwindle into my self doubts and beliefs. I told my husband who travel a lot (I send him clips of my shenanigans) he is married to a 26yo ninja!!!"

Ninja Cynthia

“My journey with Yogi Flight School began when my appendix exploded last year and gave me gangrene...This left me with a healthy dose of fear...Then I saw an ad for Yogi Flight School. Doing a headstand is pretty scary...I started with Nathania’s videos, live classes, and a 1-on-1 session - she’s an amazing teacher with an incredible ability to see my physical and mental blocks. Just a short time later, I overcame that fear and I was flying.”

 

Ninja On Demand!

This is the dream right here!! When we started Yogi Flight School, the vision was to empower people everywhere to #stopdropandninja anywhere they went. Handstand on a mountain! Pincha at the beach! 8 Angle Pose on a log in the woods! And Yogi Flight School has delivered in a big way. One of our favorite community activities is "Ninjas in the Wild," where our members share photos and videos of their ninja antics in unexpected places. It's your turn to feel the POWER and FREEDOM of being able to pop into a handstand or arm balance anytime you damn well please!

Avinah P.

I love this community so much! Your bloopers and technique and wins inspire me to stop, drop and ninja anywhere anytime!
I am that orchid that requires the proper lighting, no audio input, clothes must be appropriate for me to perform at my best.
I am slowly becoming a wildflower… able to thrive anywhere… anytime with your help.
 Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

"Ever since joining YFS, it's been nearly impossible to take me anywhere without me trying out (with varying degrees of success) ninja shit EVERYWHERE.

Ninja Sary

“All my life, I’ve lived very comfortably in my fear. My fear was my survival mechanism, my way of protecting myself from getting hurt…but there’s no better way to face your fears than by standing on your hands. Through the falls, the fails, and the faceplants, Yogi Flight School taught me to face my fears and to build myself up after every fall...What I learned is that my fear is wrong! I CAN take care of my body and keep it safe! I AM worthy of positive attention and reinforcement! I AM worthy of investment, both from myself and from others!”

Transformation Beyond The Poses

The poses are amazing, but secretly, we stand for a much deeper transformation. Who you become on the way to being a ninja changes you forever - not just what you're capable of on your yoga mat, but the way you trust yourself, the confidence you experience and the way you carry yourself in the world is never the same again. We are on a mission to create a ripple of effect of people who feel empowered to live out loud, speak their truth and be the most free, expressed and joyful version of themselves. The transformation you experience on your yoga mat as a ninja will follow you everywhere. WATCH the magic unfold!!!

Paul K.

My name is Paul. A retired builder. From my late twenties I have had a serious problem with my back. Taking treatment from chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, sports massage therapist and others.
Working in the building trade I spent my time in steel toecap boots wearing protective clothing and needing a metal reinforced girdle to continue working. After wearing out two girdles a in need of a treatment twice a week to be able to work.
Told that I could not continue as a carpenter any more my my GP,I took a second opinion and after an MRI scan and xray was told that I had a herniated disc and would have this for life.
I took early retirement before I ended up in a wheelchair.
My body was never flexible in any part.
I was losing muscle mass due to lack of effort.
In 2015 I found yoga. This was the first time I felt the chance to repair the damaged body.
I love the process and just loved the inversions at the end of class but never had the time or energy to play long enough.
In 2020 after taking the free three day YFS course fell in love the idea of full time fun poses,hence the house of fun.
In 2021 took the next step to train with Nathania and Abigail for 200HR YTT.
This has given me a deeper more meaningful reason in my yoga journey.
Teaching yoga on the beach weekly. Teaching my wife daily classes. Teaching in studios including handstand and inversions on a weekly basis.
Inspiring yogis to believe that they can and will achieve things that others try to convince them are not possible.
My life is now is full of hope for others to reach their goals and dreams.
If I can do anything to inspire you to believe then it will be when I can do my press to handstand, splits,dropback and one arm handstand. All on my to do list.
Don't tell what I can't do because I shall just work harder to prove you wrong.
See you in the chat or on the mat.

The summer I was turning 9 years old I was in a car accident and I broke my right arm and right leg.

After a few surgeries, I was able to walk again, but had a lot of physical pain as a result and I was always afraid I was going to get hurt.


In 2018, I started practicing at Yoga at Empower Yoga. I remembered the first time one of my teachers encouraged me to try Crow Pose while attending her class.

I thought to myself: “She doesn’t know my injuries, there is no way I can do this.”

But she insisted, and I realized that she saw in me something I could not see in myself yet: the potential to transform my life by changing my mindset and the stories I kept telling me myself for years that kept me stuck in my fears and limiting beliefs.


So, one day I gave it a try. I did not nail the pose, but that really changed the way I saw myself. I was no longer broken, I was empowered by my life’s possibilities. Eventually, after three months of trying I was able to fly on December 26, 2018.


When I joined Yogi Flight School, I was drawn to the comparisons that Nathania was making on how “these poses” are just a reflection on how we live our life.
I had been trying Side Crow on my right side for a while, but the fear has always stoped me. So, today for the first time ever, I was able to do it!


I am so incredible thankful for Nathania’s inspiration and guidance on helping me leave behind those excuses and fears that keep me from soaring once again.


"I have no words for what you offered me! Just want to say thank you from deep out of my heart. Because of YFS I learned to trust again! And I am so proud of every Baby Step forward! Its so amazing what you do! Now I will paint my whole floor with crow paintings and love it! Cant wait until tomorrow!
Thank you!!!!"

"I already benefited tremendously taking this course. It is life changing and transforming.
I am not really feeling joy and aligned inside. Your insights on what we are committed to, limitations or possibilities. the 5 Cs, etc. has prompted me into thinking, why I am not feeling fulfilled inside while looked so fulfilled outside.
Your class has been transforming, to prompt me into resorting to my priorities: what really matters to me, most importantly, not attached to the end results.
I can not wait to get into breathing and start this weekend to be on my mat with your inspirations!
Thank you again and I love you!"

"Thank you everyone in this amazing group for all of your love, kindness and compassion for each other.

I won’t go on about it here too much, but I suffered with M.E for many years following a severe assault.

I struggled to get out of bed and didn’t even have the strength to brush my own hair, I was told that there was no cure and that I had to learn to live with this illness, but this was someone else’s expectation and for a long time this became my story.

I tell you this not for sympathy but to share joy and to spread hope. I started with very gentle yoga and changed my diet, taking my health in my own hands. It has been a long, sometimes difficult road, but a journey filled with gratitude and much grace.

I have grown so much here in the last few months, and I have become quietly fearless and determined.

Listening to your stories, hearing of your challenges, seeing you overcome your difficulties and watching your progress has inspired me far more than you will ever know.

Nat and Ninjas thank you with all of my heart

You have taught me that we have the power to shape our lives, we are capable of more than we give ourselves credit for, and that we must forever hold on to the pen and write our own unique life story, never allowing another to limit our beliefs.

Much love from my heart to yours xxx

"I have been forever changed by YFS, the Universe sent Nathania Stambouli & you Fabulous Coaches to me at a time in my life when i couldn't see the light, & the support & love in this group has been phenomenal!"

"Like many people, I have suffered with depression, anxiety, and self-loathing for most of my childhood and adult life. This resulted in me pulling away from friendships, talking down to myself, and hiding behind habits, stories, and excuses as a way to avoid being hurt, rejected, or disappointed. I would often joke about the fact that I never exercised or ate right because I simply didn’t care enough about myself to invest my time in those things. I certainly would have NEVER thought that I could do some of the things my body has shown me it can accomplish lately (like crow, side crow, fallen angel, and making my way into headstand)!
Being just a few weeks into this program, I have already found an incredible transformation within myself that I did not realize I needed and certainly did not expect. With each passing milestone, I feel more confident, powerful, intelligent, and capable than I could have ever imagined. The amount of personal fulfillment and joy I have uncovered within myself from #yogiflightschool is astounding, and I can see it spilling over into every other area of my life. In fact, I would argue that spending time with the mindset courses ALONE are worth every. single. penny, and that anything beyond this inward healing and transformation – even the poses which are the purpose of this program - are simply a plus. It is especially exciting to know that there are only better things to come; as we work to master these poses, we will all find more strength, more accomplishment, and more grace with each step of the way. I feel like a brand new woman, and others have even commented on the change in my demeanor and appearance.


I hope anyone on here who has been like me – shy, cynical, negative, or self-loathing – finds equal comfort in what Nathania and her wonderful team of yoga ninjas have to offer us. I just wanted to praise this team of amazing people for the incredibly meaningful work they do.

So thankful for #yogiflightschool!!!"

“I never ever thought I would learn the things I have learned since entering Yogi Flight School, and nailing some of the poses is actually the least that this program has given me…Since joining the program in January, I have gained courage where there was fear…I am being who I really am on the inside…I stopped watching TV and replaced that with practicing…Sometimes when I watch the videos of my practice, I am looking at the screen and thinking to myself ‘Can I really do all of this? Is this really me?’”
