Who is Noelle?
Noelle’s powerful and inventive teaching creates space for students to pursue their practice with heart, intensity and drive. A technical teacher, she is passionate about form and endlessly inspired to harness the subtleties of the energetic body to defy gravity and move fluidly through space.
Always an athlete, this Philadelphia native, former ballerina, Boston Terrier Field Hockey player and graduate of Boston University, took her first yoga class in 2002, and fell in love with the practice – mentally, physically and spiritually.
Currently heading up the yoga program at Sydney’s BodyMindLife, she gives her all to her students, with strong, challenging and intelligently sequenced classes that engage, inform and inspire, set to a background of meticulously curated music. She feels honoured and blessed to share the knowledge of her teachers and mentors, including Maty Ezraty, Joan White, Joan Hyman and Simon Park, in an authentic way.
