About Nora

20130430-Nora-n-Tamar-032Fox Lotus Square

I am a Brooklyn-based yoga and meditation teacher, born in Germany. My interest is in sharing yoga as a multi-dimensional practice exploring dynamic asana, restorative, pranayama, meditation, sound vibration, philosophy, and yogic ethics. I am passionate about environmental sustainability, animal rights, veganism, and gender equality. Besides teaching, I love to explore music on the didgeridoo, handpan, and djembe.

I have studied with a variety of teachers who have communicated different aspects of yoga. What I share is a remix of the teachings I received, together with my continuous personal research. I have completed 1600 hours of certification in yoga and meditation and have been teaching yoga since 2007, movement research since 2001. I facilitate the Philosophy and Subtle Body Teacher Training at YogaWorks and teach didgeridoo classes at DidgeProject in Brooklyn.
