With over a decade of yoga practice, Noelle Beaugureau views yoga as a journey of understanding the connection to the true self within. As a heart-based teacher, she believes that the yoga practice should help one release layers of the ego to find a more authentic place internally, while cultivating strength in the body to calm the mind. Through work with the breath, the movement of the body, and letting go of incessant thoughts, Noelle communicates that one can find healing and inner strength. Along with a strong background in vinyasa flow yoga, Noelle's classes are challenging, fun and allow for greater physical and spiritual development. She encourages students to discover more about the deeper layers of the self to initiate change, growth and healing in one's life. Much of Noelle's teaching is rooted in Bhakti Yoga (the path of love and devotion). With a love of arm balances and inversions, Noelle actively teaches how to incorporate these types of asanas into a yoga practice in a playful and intelligent way. Her travels to holy places in India give her classes a richness, and allow for understanding the roots of the ancient practice of yoga. Having studied with many world-renowned teachers including Ganga White of the White Lotus Foundation, Raghunath Cappo, and spiritual teacher Radhanath Swami, Noelle has cultivated a strong knowledge of asana, pranayama, and yogic philosophy. In her class you will laugh, play, chant, breathe, explore, let go and find inherent joy within! She loves to share with her students all that she has learned over the years and hopes that they can use their yoga in every aspect of their lives. Noelle is deeply grateful to all of her teachers.
