Nora is a Brooklyn-based yoga and meditation teacher, movement educator, and musician. She is interested in sharing yoga as a multi-dimensional practice exploring mindful movement and breathing, meditation, sound vibration, philosophy, and yoga ethics as tools for healing and interconnecting. Nora is passionate about environmental sustainability, animal rights, and veganism. She plays the didgeridoo and handpan, often integrating live music into her classes for deeper relaxation.

Nora has studied with a variety of teachers who have communicated different aspects of yoga. Her teaching style is a remix of those studies, together with her continuous personal research. Nora has completed 1600 hours of certification in yoga and meditation and has been teaching yoga since 2007, movement research since 2001.
