Your Yoga Journey Starts Here

Meet your teacher

Norah has been teaching Iyengar Yoga in the Hexham area since 2006 after qualifying as a teacher. She has passed two further exams since then, one in 2012 and then in 2019. This shows her commitment to develop her own practice and teaching skills. So she continues with her own learning and development as a lifelong student of yoga, seeking to find the best for her and her students.

Norah has been privileged over the years to be taught and corrected (!) by excellent local teachers and also many visiting teachers. These have all been important to her journey of yoga.

Iyengar Yoga has inspired Norah through the experience of developing harmony of body and mind through the various yoga poses.

“Words cannot convey the value of yoga – it has to be experienced,” BKS Iyengar.

We learn through a carefully graded and systematic programme of postures. Yoga practice both relaxes and energizes the body and mind and brings vitality, flexibility, strength, concentration, self-confidence and mental calm. Yoga is suitable for all types of people and all levels of fitness.

It is physically challenging to the level we can each work. Practising Yoga helps you overcome and prevent many stresses, strains, aches and pains. It promotes a firm foundation for health and well-being.

Norah's Story...

“Initially I started yoga in 1999, and for my second term I signed up accidentally for an Iyengar Yoga class.  This felt different in every way, more challenging, more engaging, using muscles I didn’t even know I had- I loved the discipline, the awareness it developed in my body and the work of the teacher in checking each of us in the pose.  Since then I have been delighted to continue on my yoga journey. My interest developed into attending training to be an instructor qualifying as an Iyengar Yoga Teacher in 2006.

I continue to learn more about the poses and the challenges they make for my body and those I teach.  Learning is continuous.  Over the 20 years of doing yoga obviously I have got older so I am constantly learning about myself as well as the yoga poses.”
