Bonnie Norton

About The Teacher

Growing up on a Michigan farm with 6 brothers, Bonnie was raised close to nature, connected to growing food and with a huge imagination. Dreams of traveling and of living near the ocean brought her across the country to California at a young age, where she found security and success in the corporate world of LA. This lifestyle brought much, but over the years her burning desire for something more grew stronger and stronger.

In 2010, Bonnie made the decision to leave the corporate world and LA to pursue the strong call towards purposeful work, freedom and holistic living. This led to a series of powerful experiences whilst traveling, including a deeply transformational RYT-200 yoga teacher training in Guatemala, all of which revealed within her a strong calling to share a path of transformation with others. She has been on a spiritual journey ever since, continuously seeking to learn, share and live wholeheartedly.

As Director of the Mystical Yoga Farm, a permaculture and yoga retreat center in Guatemala for over 2 years, Bonnie was able to further pursue her passion for personal transformation while developing and running a sustainable intentional community. Following her RYT-500 certification, she pursued a path to facilitate yoga teacher trainings and personal transformation immersion retreats with SchoolYoga Institute. Bonnie Co-founded Kula Collective and worked as the Operations Director, A facilitator and on the Kula board of directors for two years until February 2017. Bonnie is passionate about permaculture and received her Permaculture Certification in 2014.

Bonnie is a creative business coach for artists and entrepreneurs, grounded doula (birthing assistant), transformational retreat coordinator, passionate yoga teacher and intuitive massage therapist. Bonnie is passionate about building community, creating ceremony, working with youth, growing food (especially cacao) as well as time with her family. She weaves a path of personal transformation in with the teachings of yoga and shamanism, offering healing support on spiritual, physical, emotional and mental levels. Her steady and calming energy brings a sense of belonging and invites vulnerability as she draws together groups to make lasting positive changes. Her intention is to leave everyone she meets feeling more at home within themselves, connected to the moment and inspired to live more wholeheartedly.

Bonnie has coordinated and facilitated yoga teacher trainings in Bali, Santorini Greece, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colorado and Peru. Bonnie currently lives in the mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah near her family and 25 nieces and nephews.
