Yoga has been a part of my life for 15 years, and my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible, and courageous both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindful. I completed my 200 hour teacher training and my Massage training at Southwest Institute for the healing arts in Tempe, AZ, my second YTT was taking at the Studio Panterra in Westfield, NY. I learned the importance of alignment and use of props to make poses more accessible for ALL students. I will always be a student of the practice and I am deeply grateful for all the teachers who came before us who practice and shared the loving wisdom of yoga. In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing that builds upon itself to help the body & mind find space, a spirit of playfulness, and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind, and soul with yoga techniques and bodywork. My hope is that you step off the mat or table feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.
My name is Natalie Maggio and I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist and Dietitian. My journey began more than 20 years ago when I became passionate about the human body, prevention of disease and how it relates to Nutrition. Through years of education and obtaining degrees from Ohio University and Loyola University of Chicago, I began working in the field as a Registered Dietitian in both public and private practices. In my studies, I learned how the body works intricately from the inside out. As my journey continued, I became interested in human touch and the amazing abilities it has on the physical, spiritual and mental wellness in our bodies. I began another learning adventure and engulfed myself in a program at Tri-State in Erie, PA where I earned an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy. As I began to learn the human body from the outside in, I grew to understand how my past education and experience so greatly compliments my present one. I am forever a student of the human body and learning all of its great abilities to prepare, train, prevent, recover, and heal itself through all avenues of wellness.

I grew up in nearby Fredonia, and have lived in the Jamestown-Lakewood area since 2011. A circuitous journey through life has led me to bodywork. I went to college in my hometown and received a Bachelor’s degree in History and Women’s Studies. From there, I went on to a career in human services and began graduate studies in Social Work; it was a job opportunity in that field that helped bring me to this community. A few years into that kind of work, I realized that it was not for me. I greatly enjoyed the role of helper/healer, but thought I would thrive with a more active workday. My need for physical activity and my history in athletics led me to consider becoming a massage therapist, hoping that I could play the role of helper in a different capacity. I went back to school in July 2013, attending the New York Institute of Massage in Buffalo. After becoming a licensed massage therapist in September 2014, I have practiced my skills in Swedish, therapeutic, and deep tissue massage. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to do this work at Eight Limbs for the past year. I also became a Certified Rolfer in December 2016 and am in the process of establishing a private Rolfing practice. I believe that the experience of our physical bodies is one of the most important components of a happy and healthy life. I hope that I can provide bodywork that allows clients to explore and deepen that experience.
