What our Ninjas are Saying
"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. It really reasonates with me. And I got super excited to watch all of your Modules.
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 someday 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."

"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."

"I can at least get into position for chinstand, even if I can’t hold it!! Before your class, 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!"

"Loving how this program is making my Ashtanga stronger too. My pick ups and jumpbacks and jump throughs are getting stronger. I’m getting consistent hang time, and picked up first time from Kurmasana to Tittibhasana to Crow to a jump back, aged 50. Boom! The gift to myself that keeps on giving. Thank you Nathania x"

"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"

"Thank you so much for your amazing advices! I have been mastering crow pose, now working on aka pada bakasana : not so easy! Sirsasana A and B are working well, I try now some variations ( I get the pike now wooow so happy! ). I have been working on handstand for quite long time alone and it feel soooo much better now!
So lot of progress since I started only about a week ago! Go on you are amazing 🤩 "

"Loving the course so far. Getting into crow pose for the first time in 20 years of practicing yoga, even if it’s just for a second or 2. I definitely had a story that it was just something that wasn’t going to happen for me. All the stuff you say in your videos. Bum too big, not enough upper body strength. Very self limiting language. Practicing everyday to try and nail it. Stack your shit was a big one for me. My centre of gravity was too far back to be able to get into the pose. I haven’t ventured onto a new one yet, but will get there. I’m also really enjoying your interviews. Very inspiring. Thank you from Australia 🇦🇺 "

"I am loving your flight school! One day when I grow up, I want to be just like you. ha ha. I am working on my crow still but have had excellent success with it this week!! I have just begun more in depth training of Yoga to become a certified teacher (200 YTT). I am telling everyone about your program!"
- Sherrie K. -
"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."

"First of all, let me say that your program is amazing. And you are such an inspiration. Very happy I made the purchase:-)
WINS: Crow pose! I’ve been trying to do this for years and thought I was truly incapable. I even stopped attempting it in class because I just didn’t think it was possible for me. But as soon as I saw your module, I figured out what I was doing wrong. I went through all the steps and voila! Like magic.
This is HARD, but I’m so psyched that I’m going for it. I’m trying to celebrate the baby wins as much as possible. Thank you again for creating this program! The studio I practice in goes crazy for arm balances and inversions and I am always so jealous!"

"I applied your tips in my regular class today and they really helped. :) ( twisted root, flying pigeon, flying lizard, and I’ve forgotten the other one we did in class. I was working on flying crow yesterday and was having success getting into it from down dog. Previously when trying it couldn’t get it. Will try more things from module one this weekend and then skip to module 5 I think before going on to the others. I’ll post some videos hopefully this weekend of flying pigeon I’m getting it much better on one side then the other, and would love some feedback."

"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 ;)"

"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 "

"This week has been LOTS of fun and very motivating so far, thank you!
My crow pose is coming along really well now thanks to your tips about stacking the wrist and elbow and about knee position on the back of the arm. Before that I had bruises all over as I couldn't work out where to put my knees and tried every position possible.
I tried the one-legged crow vinyasa class today and although I didn't get more than a tip toe off the floor from the down dog set up, I felt that it will be achievable in the future. That's probably my major win so far, the belief in myself that things will get better (on and off the mat). Thank you so much for making all this possible! Ninja greetings!"

"I just wanted to write to say a really huge thank you for your YFS course and all of the amazing work which has so clearly been put into it...When covid came I decided to learn to headstand and have become a total inversion junkie. But with little progress - other than advancing a lot in headstand - and working a lot on core strength.
I discovered your course on my IG feed but couldn't conceive of spending this much money on myself right now. But you just kept appearing and then my closest friend sent me a link to your free talk the other day and after watching that you had me - by that night I had signed up. I went to bed feeling more than a little concerned and anxious I had made this impulsive purchase .....for what?
I am not even 10% into it and I have absolutely NO DOUBT this was worth every cent of those two hundred euros! You are a fabulous teacher and I can't help but feel this has fallen into my lap at exactly the time I most needed it! I am so so very grateful that I had the courage and made the choice to invest in myself in this way. Thank you for your passion, beleif, dedication, honestly, vulnerability and non bullshit approach! THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!! I cant wait to fly!!"

"Thank you so much for the program! To be honest, I was a little skeptical, I have been doing yoga for 9 years and trying to do arm balances, not being able to succeed on most of them. But I was like "let's try it and see what happens", and to my surprise I was able to lift on a lot of poses I have been struggling with, I still have a lot of work to do but I realized that with practice and the right mindset I can actually do it! I'd love to have a certificate, I really feel I deserve it, haha. Thanks again!"

"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 realise 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!"

"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 learn 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!

"…after watching 2 virtual arm balance workshops with Nathania, I was able to move from Side Crow to Fallen Angel pose for the first time in 8 years of yoga practice. Sure, I got a little bruised and sore but it was totally worth it!”
"I used to think inversions weren’t ever going to be in my practice. They seemed kinda scary and inaccessible especially when practicing at home. But thanks to Nathania’s awesome program I can’t stop obsessing over them. Always finding new ways to change my perspective.”
"Yogi Flight School is a must for anyone who wants to unlock some of these challenging poses. Unlike a flow class where things keep moving, here you have time to practice, ask questions, and learn from your other yogis. She breaks down each pose, gives you time to figure it out, and offers encouragement along the way. I'm now doing poses that I'd struggled with before. I'm also stronger and more confident in my practice.”
“Arm balances are one of those things that I always saw other people do but I never thought that I could. I finally got the fine-tuned instruction I needed and I’m finding myself able to hold crow longer every day, I was able to do side crow, I can do these weird funky arm balances I never thought that I could because of getting that attention. Nathania makes it fun, she laughs, and even though it’s self-paced you still get feedback and watch other people on FB."
