Nora is a Brooklyn-based yoga teacher and movement educator. She is interested in sharing yoga as a multi-dimensional practice exploring dynamic asana, restorative, pranayama, meditation, deep listening, sound, philosophy, and yogic ethics. She is passionate about environmental consciousness, species and gender equality, veganism, and loves to make music on the didgeridoo and handpan.

Nora has studied with many wonderful teachers who have communicated different aspects of yoga. Her teaching practice is a remix of the teachings she received, together with her continuous personal research. She has completed 1600 hours of teacher training in yoga and meditation and has been teaching since 2007. She facilitates the Philosophy and Subtle Body Teacher Training at YogaWorks and teaches didgeridoo classes at DidgeProject in Brooklyn.

Originally from Germany, Nora lived in Amsterdam for 15 years where she worked as a choreographer and performance artist, before moving to New York City in 2013. She lives with her wife Tamar and their two kittens Teddy and Smalls in Brooklyn.
