About Nora

I’m a queer artist, movement educator, meditation facilitator, musician, and student of urban farming & social justice at Farm School NYC. I’m passionate about earth care, animal welfare, and community building.

Originally from Germany, I studied performance art and choreography in Amsterdam, where I lived and worked until I moved to Brooklyn in 2013. For several years, I taught movement research at the School for New Dance Development Amsterdam and at the summer academy of the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. I also teach didgeridoo classes through DidgeProject in Brooklyn.

Since 2007, I’ve been sharing the practices of yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation. I studied with many teachers from different lineages across different countries, and I respect and value those teachings deeply, as I continue to explore them in practice. I co-facilitated the Philosophy & Subtle Body teacher training at YogaWorks NYC and worked as an organizer for Unionize Yoga, the first ever yoga teacher union.

At this time, I have the deep wish to be a steward of the earth through caring for living soils, practicing regenerative small-scale agriculture, and advocating for local non-profit economies. May we learn from roots and mycelium how to thrive in community.
