Our Facilities

 

NATA is located at 28 rue Planchat between the Père Lachaise cemetery and the place de la Nation in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. We have an indoor lobby, a kitchen, a large practice room that looks out onto two peaceful gardens and a changing room with lockers to keep your belongings safe.

 

Check out our slide show to see the space. Our renovation is documented in our Facebook album, and you can laugh with us in the video we shot during construction in the yoga studio!

Our Founders

Pamela and Senêt Weber have over 50 years of combined experience in the fields of yoga, meditation and vegetarian organic cuisine.

 

Alongside his career as a fine artist, Senêt studied and then taught shiatsu, macrobiotics and do-in, three holistic techniques descended from Chinese medicine via Japan.

 

His yoga practice also began in the 1970s in Geneva with Jean Rofidal and then with Gérard Arnaud in Paris. He has been a devoted practitioner for over forty years.

 

He spent several months in Boston, MA (USA) to complete an advanced apprenticeship with internationally-renowned macrobiotic teacher Michio Kushi at the Kushi Institute. He translated Michio Kushi’s The Book of Oriental Diagnosis into French in 1982 (ed. Guy Trédaniel).

 

Pamela encountered yoga during her doctoral studies in art history in the year 2000. An avid student of the practice, she completed her first teacher training program with in Paris and received certification in Hatha Yoga with the Fédération française du yoga in 2004.

 

After accepting a teaching position as Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Rhode Island, she undertook a second teacher training program in Vinyasa Yoga with Tom Gilette at his Eyes of the World Studio in Providence, RI (USA) in 2009-2010. She also received macrobiotic training at the Kushi Institute (Becket, MA, USA) and studied health-supportive, vegetarian cooking at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York, NY (USA).

 

In 2013, Pamela left her university teaching position to dedicate herself fully to yoga, meditation, and vegetarian, organic cooking.
