Co-founder of Vasu Studio // Spa Director

I’m a Holistic Aesthetician, Massage Therapist and Botanical Beauty Expert. My deep passion for beauty + healing has brought me around the globe; studying herbs + ancient massage in China, botanical skincare in Europe, and plant medicine from various traditions.

I have a love for the mystical world, which has led me to study lunar astrology with The Wild Woman Project, Goddess traditions, and sacred rituals. I combine these wisdoms into our monthly Full Moon + New Moon Circles, and our Goddesses Of Tantra Series. You can find me at Vasu Studio giving organic massages + facials, and creating healing body rituals; spiritual baths to heal heartbreaks, facial masks to clear complexions, and oils to give you strength and protection.

My medicine and offering to you is using the healing power of earth + plants, the intuitive wisdom of the moon + stars, and my own strength + heart, to  hold space for your healing process and encourage you to savor yourself and life more deeply.


Natalie Wheeler

Co-founder of Vasu Studio // Yoga Director // Community Developer

I have been practicing yoga for a decade and my love for the practice began with Bikram Yoga, which was my gateway into the yoga world. When I began my career as a travel nurse in California and Puerto Rico, I deeply craved connection, community, and a sense of belonging. Yoga became my home, connecting me to myself , my community, + the world around me.

I received my 200-hour YTT with All Yoga in Bali, Indonesia in 2014. Bali is referred to as “The Morning Of The World” and was a beautiful spiritual backdrop of temples + ritual.

I have  infused my bohemian ways into my life here in Hartford with my free spirit, appreciation of community + passion for discovery (whether that be on a plane to a far-off destination or within the bindings of a spiritual text).

I love the community that is built within the walls of a yoga studio. We all crave connection. I understand that is part of what brings us to our yoga mats. I feel so connected to my students, and feel blessed to be doing what I absolutely love. There is an abundance of lessons within the practice of yoga, and my passion is to empower students to carry those lessons off their mat.

I am also a Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Professor and utilize my advanced knowledge of human anatomy + passion for teaching a diverse student population in my class design. I apply the saying “teach to the class in front of you” when teaching yoga. My style consists of a soulful mix of asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and self-reflection.

As one of my favorite authors, Danielle LaPorte says, “It’s not how we practice…it’s why.”
