Nathan has been practicing yoga for the last 18 years, and finds a natural ease in working as a musical accompanist for yoga and other movement. He brings a nuanced sensitivity in following the direction that a teacher is taking a class, and an ability to create organic, dynamic, multi-layered soundscapes over extended periods of time.

Nathan has provided live music for yoga classes in a variety of styles including Vinyasa flow, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yoga Nidra, and Chakra Yoga, with teachers that include Nancy Ruby of Yoga Motion, Seattle based Cosetta Romani, Ashtanga teacher/musician David Garrigue, Inner Harmony Yoga owner Brian Baty, Harmony Yoga teacher trainer Alison Rubin, and many others throughout the northwest, along with festivals and retreats including the Feather Pipe Ranch, Northwest Yogafeast, Pranafest, ond more. Nathan has also provided musical accompaniment to a wide variety of dance, creative movement, and intentional/theraputic movement, including West African, Modern, Flamenco, Belly Dance, and Performance Art, with organizations that include Turning The Wheel, Open Field Artist, Soul Motion, Dance For Parkinson's Disease, and others.

Nathan is also owner/director of the Missoula Childbloom Guitar Program, a music education program that provides lessons to 200 Missoula youth. Visit www.MissoulaChildbloom.com for more information.

Along with teaching and performing music, Nathan runs Missoula Soundworks recording studio, providing audio recording, editing, and engineering services to musicians and a wide variety of commercial organizations. Visit www.MissoulaSoundworks.com for more information.
