About me

Welcome,

My name is Noémie.

I’m a photographer turned yoga & meditation teacher (BWY 500h+).

I run workshops and classes online and in person.

I invite you to move into stillness and connect with yourself, using the breath as a magic carpet.

I’m fascinated by animals and the natural world and draw my inspiration from Nature.

I love watching how animals move and interact with each other and how Nature reclaims urban areas: I’m always happy to meet wild animals in abandoned buildings, or watch dandelions push their way through cracks in the pavements…

This quiet rebellion fills me up with joy and hope.

I particularly love bird watching. I go out for walks everyday with my dogs and often bring my camera with me, to document my wild encounters.

I am fascinated by animals, urban wilderness and London.

I love watching geese.

I collect sock yarn, pebbles and folktales.

Wild Geese

“You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees, 

the mountain and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.”

~Wild Geese – Mary Oliver.
