Naomi draws on her experience to teach light, uplifting classes that reflect the challenge of big city life without losing sight of yoga’s ancient roots. Working within the Krishnamacharya lineage she teaches dynamic Vinyasa using an ever-changing sequence of Asana (aligning breath and movement), which allows her to respond to the energy in the room. She has trained with many of the world’s best teachers, each of whom has contributed to her unique teaching style. After working with injuries and auto-immune illness she has developed a practice that emphasises the therapeutic benefits of yoga and her classes are designed for all levels. Her love of yoga is evident in her teaching style and her classes will leave you feeling inspired and open to possibility. In 2012, she set up her own studio, Yoga On The Lane, where, along with her cohort of incredible teachers, she teaches students of all stripes, and runs a highly regarded teacher training program.
‘Having tried MANY local yoga studios, I’d almost decided that yoga was just not for me. I felt too ‘inflexible’ and too ‘inexperienced’. Then a friend recommended Yoga On The Lane. I was immediately struck by the truly unique atmosphere there - it feels so safe and welcoming, not judging or intimidating. The remarkably skilled teachers helped me to understand that being kind to myself is essential - that there is no ‘wrong’...apart from believing that yoga is only for super-flexi, sporty types. I’m now one of those, what I used to call ‘annoying yoga people’. I wish I’d discovered YOTL years ago. ‘ - Chloe Leland
