Noemi is a full-time Yoga teacher and Yoga therapist who first encountered Yoga in her first trip to India in 2004. Since then she has been devoted to the study and the practice of the different aspects of Yoga with renowned international teachers. Her teaching is influenced by the philosophy of Hatha Yoga and Krishnamacharya’s lineage of Ashtanga, Vinyasa Krama and the therapeutic approach of Viniyoga.
Noemi holds a 500-hour teaching diploma from the BWY and 500-hour Yoga Alliance. She recently graduated from her 500-hour Prana Vinyasa Flow with Shiva Rea and The Art of the Individual Teaching (Yoga therapy) at Sadhana Mala.
Noemi enjoys teaching Vinyasa as she believes it is an intelligent and powerful system which encompasses all aspects of the Yoga practice and life. However, she has a deep interest in Yoga philosophy and Yoga therapy which she integrates in her one to one teaching. Currently she is studying Yoga and Life Navigation (Life coaching) in the program Soulful Wellness with Shiva Rea.
Noemi has experienced the transformative, healing and life changing qualities of Yoga having to go through many life challenges herself.
‘Yoga provides an efficient and graceful way to navigate life by keeping you connected to the Life force (Prana) and to the inner fire (spark of life) in any situation’.
Noemi classes are challenging, fun and creative respecting the roots of Yoga and the philosophy behind. She combines 'Solar' (strong/dynamic) Vinyasa with 'Lunar' (restorative/meditative) in order to bring balance to the whole system. She pays great attention to the quality of breath supporting the movement and the alignment in the posture.
