Nativida Osland

Nati spent 16 years teaching in Minneapolis, dividing her time between all four corners of the city and working with 2nd through 6th grades in schools varying from 5 to 99 percent free and reduced lunch. Nati’s passion for social justice and dismantling inequity informs her work inside and outside of the classroom. As a trained yoga instructor, she believes that the Catalyst Approach aligns with the way she sees the world. Her favorite strategy is Adapt Visually because of its creative visual aspect, and she finds that low breathing and increased pausing help her both listen more deeply and honor the introvert in her—a win-win!
