About Me

Hi, I’m Naomi

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

Curious and adventurous, I have always been asking questions and seeking ways to move and live well. I have a deep understanding that being true to yourself may not always feel easy, but is the key to wholehearted living.

An explorer of my outer world, I travelled while rock climbing and adventuring.  Inspired by challenges, I loved pursuing goals and learning what my body was capable of. Along the way I began to delve more into my inner world through Yoga. 

Starting out as a Physical Education Teacher and following some big life questions and decisions, I took the leap to change.  I began teaching Yoga and for over a decade continued to be fascinated by anatomy, psychology and the wonders of our human experience.

In the midst of the Covid pandemic, I experienced the great shifts accompanied with pregnancy and becoming a first time Mother. I felt viscerally and energetically the call to live and connect cyclically and in rhythm.  Tuning into my body and mind to heal and thrive following postpartum while navigating everyday life has brought a new level of appreciation, understanding and acceptance.  Motherhood has been one of the most profound spiritual growth periods of my life.

Our bodies and experience are not only vehicles for the next goal or challenge, they can be an invitation to truly knowing and accepting yourself. Where you can feel peace, contentment and at home in your own skin.

 

‘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.’
