Hi, I’m Noémie, I am a fully qualified yoga and meditation teacher.
I’m here to help you!
I teach gentle Hatha Yoga to relax and strengthen muscles and joints. I use various styles and techniques including restorative yoga, chair yoga, pranayama (controlled breath exercises), relaxation and meditation for chronic pain relief, to reduce stress, and induce deep relaxation.
I’m specialised in yoga for people recovering from injuries, back problems, chronic pain, long term illness and pregnancy.
You will also find that a regular practice of Yoga also improves posture, balance, sleep and self-confidence.
I have completed over 500 hours of study with the British Wheel of Yoga over the course of 4 years and hold their Diploma Level 4, but my background is in Tibetan Buddhism. I was fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by the teachings of important masters from all Tibetan Buddhist Traditions.
I have experienced years of sciatica, a life time of fused vertebrae, scoliosis, a compressed fracture, muscle spasms, spinal degeneration, which led me towards an in depth study of back problems and what to do about them.
I have learned how to manage pain and how to alleviate my back problems considerably with yoga. I would be delighted to help you too if you are ready to take that next step!
My classes are for everyone, including those experiencing or recovering from illness or injury and pregnant women.

Random things about me:
Professional photographer turned yoga teacher.
Animal lover, wilderness seeker and avid knitter…
I am fascinated by animals, especially birds. I started painting them a few years ago, to get to know them. I’m a keen bird watcher.
I sometimes run Animal Communication Workshops and upload videos on how we can understand animals better and improve our relationship with them on my youtube channel.
I like to collect pebbles, sock yarn and postcards from the places I visit.
My roots are in Tibetan Buddhism as I have been surrounded by that culture since I was born. My dad was the vice-president of a French organisation that helps Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal.
I am a knitter. I thoroughly enjoy knitting my own clothes, using the yarn grown by the Lleyn, Jacob and Hebridean sheep who roam freely in the Ashdown Forest and shape the landscape where I walk everyday…
I enjoy my daily soul strolls in the woods, with my son and our two dogs…
Yoga, wild woods, woolly knits, wool, my camera, clouds, sunsets, sunrises, my box of watercolour paints, birds, birdwatching, warm drinks, very good chocolate, foraging wild foods, good stories, watching animals, talking with dogs, the sea side, books, pebbles, woodland walks, folk music…
