Meet Noémie

Having a dedicated Yoga practice since 2011 has been foundational to my journey of growth as a human being. The daily practice of moving inwards has increased my capacity to be reflective, mindful and compassionate. Over the years, I have grown from a place of struggling to accept myself to now enjoying and embracing who I am and what life brings my way.

Through my experience, I have developed a personal philosophy of meeting myself and others from a place of kindness, care and understanding. I believe the desire to find meaning in one’s life is universal. Yoga, for me, has become the channel through which I can shape a more meaningful life.

My calling to teach stems from a place of reverence at the wisdom stored within our bodies and a passion to meet people in this place. My yoga practice, grown across the last 10 years of my life, has led me into the philosophy of Shaiva Tantra and the physical practice of Krama Vinyasa, which have become deeply embedded both on a personal and professional level.  

I’m passionate about self-discovery and growth on a subtle body level, through the exploration of the mind-body connection, yoga philosophy, asana, chanting and pranayama. Inclusivity & accessibility are at the heart of my offerings; I advocate for a more expansive and beautiful life for each, rooted in love and compassion.

My Philosophy

I’m a Stroud-based Yoga teacher with 6 years teaching experience, registered under a 500hATT in non-dual Shaiva Tantra philosophy and the physical practice of Krama Vinyasa.

Using a mindfulness approach is at the core of my offerings. Staying in enquiry helps you to strengthen your ability to become more present and decipher the wisdom communicated through your body. I weave this into the Pancha Maya Kosha map (layers of being) to support a deeper and more integrated sense of self. 

I believe that the body is the source of one’s belonging to this world. When you step into your body, you step into a sacred space. Asana (posture) practice is a mirror that can help reflect different parts of yourself and, when used with intention and purpose, becomes the most tangible medicine in reclaiming your exiled parts. 

At the beginning of each class a specific Bhavana (contemplation) is introduced to inspire you in your practice. You will be encouraged to explore how this theme resonates for you and how to find expression for it through your breath and movement. 

I create a safe, nurturing and laid-back environment where you are able to explore variations of postures that serve you best. The breath-led sequences encourage you to explore and gradually expand your edges in a conscious way. This is amplified by the use of pranayama, mantras and mudras. 

Hands-on adjustments are offered with the understanding that touch provides a direct means of sensing into the parts of you that seek greater connection. The subtle alterations of your body’s response to touch will bring a deeper awareness to areas where movement may be restricted due to habitual patterns of tension. Touch creates a bridge between what is waiting to be revealed, and what then becomes a deeper and wider knowing of your own body.

I believe that Yoga has something to offer to each. That’s why my classes are inclusive and accessible to all. Through practicing Yoga, you engage your breath and your body as the starting point to create a more meaningful relationship with your inner world. This can have a profound and transformative effect on your wellbeing, and your capacity to create, and to live, an authentic and aligned life.

A moment in time… ✨

At the moment, my personal sadhana (practice) looks very different day to day. It feels like a lot of my time is spent in studios, driving to them or preparing for classes.

I never knew a year ago when letting go of my financially secure job what teaching yoga full time would require. It’s physically demanding - sure - but teaching has become an extension of my personal inquiry and exploration.

I’ve had to let go of what I want my practice to look like and instead had to check in with sincerity about what I need it to be. It’s been a humbling experience to be reminded that Yoga really isn’t about the movements but very much in the way that you continually meet yourself and meet others.

“We are all walking each other home” 💖
Whether you are used to guiding or being guided, we all have something to offer each other in this continuum of life 🙏

In my classes these last couple of weeks, we have been exploring choice as a reality that we create.

There is an artist residing within us all that is steeped in desire, imagination and presence 🎨 In many ways, Yoga is a journey of reclaiming this inner artistry.

My intention is to guide you into an internal space where you start to recognise the choice that you have to be more fully present to yourself. A space where you are aware of the way that you meet yourself through inquiry, through breath and in movement ✨

I love what I do! 💖
Being a Yoga teacher is a continuous journey of learning and I find myself humbled by it everyday.

I love sharing nuggets of philosophy that help/ed me find myself. I love the creativity of teaching and sequencing. I love being in community but most of all I love noticing the shift in people’s faces as they comes out of sāvasana (resting practice) 😌

When you give yourself permission for expression, you give all of us permission to do so also. Nothing is ever of benefit to only you but extends and is felt by everyone in the room sharing the space with you ✨

Picture at the beautiful @holwellholisticretreat this weekend for Full Circle festival - thank you for having me 🙏

Nothing especially philosophical to say about this one. I always forget how special the light is during this time of the year and this view from my house is pretty epic 🙏

We are innately cyclical by nature - every chapter, change, rotation, season and retrograde 🪐 has something to teach us.

I never resonated with philosophies that spoke of renouncing our sensations or in any way going beyond ourselves. For me, instead, it’s about what we choose to do with our experiences and viewing our moments of falling as the path by which we can rise ✨

Not the best photography but a special moment captured nonetheless ✨

This weekend felt like another milestone in my journey as a Yoga teacher. My first time teaching at a festival and it felt good to have these two worlds come together!

I started going to festivals at a young age and they were fundamental in shaping a sense of spirituality in me.

Thank you @anthroposfestival for having me 🙏 Stroudies keep your eyes peeled 👀 I will soon be offering a heart-inspired workshop in the area!

I was asked the other day whether I ever get angry. They seemed surprised when I responded “Oh yeah” 🔥

In fact, I practice Yoga because I get angry. I practice because I get sad, because I winge and because I get joyful. 

Yoga is in no way a cure for emotions. We were born with feelings because we are meant to experience them. What practicing Yoga can provide, though, is a meaningful dialogue with whatever you’re experiencing.

It’s when we get caught in the rights and wrongs of our mind that we lose sense of this profound internal compass, and of our ability to respond instead of reacting.

Here’s to having emotions ✌️

Since being back from being on holidays, I’ve found it difficult to find my way back to the mat, at times even feeling resistant.

Yoga has been by my side since the age of 15 and my practice has changed parallel to the different passages of my life. Even though, I’ve been practicing for nearly half of my life, finding a way for the practice to fit my life is a constantly evolving process.

The idea isn’t to create a routine and eventually follow it blindly, but to open your awareness to your present experience and find a way to express in your practice.
