Natalia Maldonado @iamwellnesswarrior
Former United States Air Force and NYPD veteran, daughter of a single mother, a Latina, a Bronx native, and a breast cancer survivor, Natalia has had a colorful and challenging journey toward owning her purpose and activating her own inner Wellness Warrior.
Natalia's wellness journey began in 2009 when discovered hot yoga to help her relieve stress and learn how to create balance in her life as a New York City Police Officer. Channeling the discipline from her Air Force and NYPD training, trauma from divorce and loss, and experiencing what many can relate to a sense that something is missing. Natalia resigned from the NYPD , before her promotion to Sergeant to pursue her spiritual and wellness passions. This spiritual awakening enabled Natalia to perfect her craft while teaching and traveling throughout Europe.
With her expertise in multiple health disciplines coupled with her certification in Hot Yoga, becoming a Master intenSati Leader, and as a health coach, Natalia formed what would be the beginning of her community; Wellness Warriors. True to what her community stands for, Natalia took an even bigger leap of faith, relocating to Miami for love and to continue building her tribe.
In 2019, Natalia was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer and more than ever felt her calling to continue leading her tribe through strength and emotional connection. Natalia made the difficult decision to choose natural healing practices to support her recovery attending the Hippocrates Health Institute, a natural healing center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Natalia continues to educate and guide people who are ready to take control of their health and experience the empowered and holistic lifestyle one can achieve by activating their inner Wellness Warrior —with Lovvve.™
