Devoted mama, inversion junkie, music nerd...
Naomi's obsession with music began at a very early age and led to a successful and fairly wild ten year career in the music industry. Whilst rich in creativity it lacked depth and she began to experience bouts of intense anxiety. It was upon waking one morning literally frozen with fear that she realised how fragmented she'd become - a couple of weeks later she sold everything and headed to India.
Following long stints in Kerala & Mysore, she then travelled to the mountains of Canada where she spent four months as an apprentice to her first teacher Prahalad Reddy. Although greatly indebted to the profound philosophical teachings of Sivananda, it was the magical alchemy of vinyasa combined with the energetic principles of Anusara which finally felt like 'home' and she has taught an ever evolving form of this since.
Inspired by the power of community and group energy, Naomi’s aim is always to create a safe and nurturing group dynamic where each individual is able to plug into the presenting current of energy to become part of something much greater than themselves. Although in love with playfulness and creativity within movement, she is extremely interested in very good form and alignment, focusing on strong and controlled transitions between the postures so that every moment is experienced and processed. Her background training with Itzhak Helman in Thai Yoga massage informs the hands on assists and adjustments she offers in class and she now teaches these on teacher training courses in London.
A teacher for over 10 years now, she is deeply passionate about the art of teaching yoga as a practice of transformation and leads packed out mentoring sessions for teachers so that they may learn their art from a place of authenticity, integrity and apprenticeship. In 2013 she became a trainer with the global advertising agency ”˜Ogilvy’ and travels around the world teaching yoga on their management programmes.
When not teaching yoga she can be found on the beach in Brighton with her boys or nodding her head at a gig somewhere....
