Nora first began her practice as a way to unwind and internalize after busy days as a freelance dancer in New York City. She found her yoga community at Kula Yoga Project, a group of thoughtful, powerful, curious, socially conscious, sweaty movers. She studied under Nikki Vilella, Magi Pierce, Nikki Costello, and Alex Auder. Nora is a an anatomy nerd fueled by studying structural integration with Lauren Haythe and Zach Dacuk. She is a graduate of Kula Yoga Project’s 200 hour teacher training, is certified in Pilates mat and apparatus, and holds a BFA from the Conservatory of Dance at SUNY Purchase.

Nora’s classes focus on the sensibility of movement combined with the sensitivity of the body in the present moment. Nora loves teaching the beauty of yoga with those less familiar to the practice, and hopes to share the tools to help others find an honest balance of stability and ease both on and off the mat.

In search of wide open spaces Nora moved to Maine from New York with her husband and pup in October. On Thanksgiving morning they welcomed their first child into the world. She is so happy to be here taking deep breaths of the fresh Maine air, and is thrilled to be back in the studio as part of the Greener Postures family.
