ABOUT NAT ↞
Hi, I’m Natalie…
…and I currently live in Bali! Two years ago, I decided to take a “break” from the corporate/entertainment world in Los Angeles to begin my journey to Santiago, Chile. While I love LA, I was lucky to call Chile my home for the past year, and I hope to be back to South America in the near future! The Digital Nomad lifestyle came about when an opportunity presented itself to move to Santiago (crazy, I know!) and I knew in my heart it was “now or never” to step out of my comfort zone and embark on some soul-searching adventure.
Why now Bali?
After working in Ubud during a YTT through out the month of May, I took my nomadic lifestyle to a different part of the world to grow NWN, teach yoga, + implement retreats. So here I am! Based in Bail – excited to meet new people and see all of the beauty that Asia as to offer.
Life is funny…
Just like everything in life, my blog took a different direction than originally planned. Actually, my LIFE took a different path than I’d ever thought imaginable. While I still intend on highlighting my past travels, I will be posting my recent adventures, as well as sharing personal info on mindful traveling.

The yoga retreat finca is located in Porreres, in the southeast of Mallorca, 15 km from the beach. It has been restored and adapted for all requirements of a yoga retreat.
The estate is cataloged as a Wildlife Refugee by the Balearic Government, as it preserves the ecosystem and the native environment. The house is surrounded by 2000 m2 of a garden with native fauna (mostly birds), ponds and a native forest with protected Mallorcan donkeys. If you want to get away from busy every day, we invite you to discover your personal paradise.
The venue is located on the road between Porreres and Felantix, 5 km from both villages. They both offer a variety of restaurants with local and international dishes. Palma is 45 km away on very good road connections. Laid back coastal villages like Portocolom are only 15 km away. You can not miss visiting the monastery in Felanitx (Santuari de Sant Salvador) or in Porreres (Puig de Montesión) and the lovely beaches of the area. The Felanitx Sports Centre that is only 5 km from our house has an Olympic size heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, tennis, padel and basketball courts. The golf course Vall d’Or is just 14 km away. We highly recommend you to rent a car (we are happy to organize that for you) as it gives you the freedom to discover the area.
The ever-popular star of the Mediterranean, Mallorca has a sunny personality thanks to its ravishing beaches, azure views, remote mountains, and soulful hill towns. Fly to Palma de Mallorca (PMI) that is very easy to reach from all major European airports.
For Miró it was the pure Mediterranean light. For hikers and cyclists, it is the Serra de Tramuntana’s formidable limestone spires and bluffs. For others, it is as fleeting as the almond blossom snowing on meadows in spring, or the interior’s vineyards in their autumn mantle of gold. Wherever your journey takes you, Mallorca never fails to seduce. Cars conga along the coast in
Return to Tradition
Mallorca’s culture took a back seat to its beaches for decades, but the tides are changing. Up and down the island, locals are embracing their roots and revamping the island’s old manor houses, country estates and long-abandoned
Mallorca tops Europe’s summer holiday charts for many reasons, but one ranks above all others: the island’s stunning coast. Beyond the built-up resorts, coves braid the island like a string of beads – each one a reminder of why the island’s beaches have never lost their appeal. Go west for cliff-sculpted drama and sapphire seas, or head north for hikes to pine-flecked bays. Scope out deserted coves in the east, or dive off bone-white beaches in the south. With a room overlooking the bright-blue sea, sundown beach strolls to the backbeat of cicadas and restaurants open to the stars, you’ll soon click into the laid-back groove of coastal living.
Eating out in Palma has never been more exciting, with chefs – inspired as much by their Mallorcan grandmothers as Mediterranean nouvelle cuisine – adding a pinch of creativity and spice to the city’s food scene. Inland, restaurants play up hale-and-hearty dishes, such as suckling pig spit-roast, to perfection, pairing them with locally grown wines. On the coast, bistros keep flavors clean, bright and simple, serving the catch of the day with big sea views.
