Elements Yoga

Hi, I’m Naomi

As far back as I can remember I have been asking questions and seeking ways to well being. I have a deep understanding that being oneself may not always feel easy.

I have been a teacher by profession for over 15 years. I started out as a Physical Education Teacher and following some big life questions and decisions, I took a leap to follow a calling to change.

Feeling a little stuck, I went to travel the world rock climbing and adventuring and began to delve into Yoga. I was seeking freedom and a sense of finding where I would fit. I wanted to go deeper in my work and in the past decade I have taught and worked with hundreds of individuals seeking greater connection and wellbeing.

More recently, in the midst of the world shifting changes due to Covid, I have experienced the great shifts accompanied with pregnancy and becoming a first time Mother. I have felt viscerally and energetically the call to live, work and connect cyclically and in rhythm rather than push, force or resist what is natural. I have come to realise that it is not about fitting in to somewhere or something but rather a sense of truly knowing oneself and being at home in your own skin brings the greatest peace and contentment.

I am drawn now towards creating space for inquiry and cultivating a sense of wholeness. I wish to support questioning what we truly value and what is getting in our way to allow the unfolding and unraveling of our truest self expression in our movements, our presence and our connections.

Through Yoga, my aim is to offer practices and rituals for you to find ease, enjoy moving, cultivate self awareness and feel empowered to make choices that feel natural and true to you.

 

‘In a time that challenges our values, we need to find our feet, soften our shoulders and open our hearts to ourselves and each other.’
