What you will get from Nora’s classes is many-fold. Primarily, you will learn more about yourself – not just physically through yoga practice, but also mentally and spiritually. With this knowledge you can feel even more comfortable about who, what and where you are in this moment.

Here’s how Nora explains it: “Understanding my point of view allows me to get more clear on who I am, what I do and what I am able to offer as a yoga student, teacher, wife, mother, etc. It allows me to ‘get real’ with myself.”

Nora’s Inspired Yoga Institute classes are offered as Drop-Ins. To make a reservation, please sign in to your preferred class in advance on MindBody Online.

A Bit about Nora’s Inspired Classes

Get Grounded
The idea of grounding requires a mental shift. Standing and balancing poses, inversions and even seated poses can focus on lifting off and pushing away from the floor. When we welcome the floor our postures have a stable foundation – we can get grounded! These classes will provide you with the alignment details you need to set a steady foundation in all of your poses. You can expect to leave this class feeling more grounded in body, mind and heart.

Upside Down & Backwards
Explore dynamic yoga poses such as standing balances, arm balances, back bends and inversions as well as a variety of seated poses guaranteed to mobilize your spine, hips and shoulders. This workshop-style class will incorporate some Critical Alignment Yoga Therapy techniques and will challenge even the most experienced yoga practitioners while offering a supportive environment to solidify and deepen your yoga practice. This class is capped at 12 participants to allow room for individual guidance and adjustments.

Wise Women Yoga
Wise Woman Yoga is designed for women 50+ years of age. It is intended for yoga practitioners who want to maintain a healthy and vital lifestyle. With room for a maximum of 6 women, you are encouraged to sign up online prior to the class. Classes are followed by tea. Contact Nora for location details.

CAT – Yoga for Backs
Learn techniques to move your body with good alignment. Using props for support, you will move your shoulders, hips and spine without compensations so that you can begin to experience freedom and relaxation in these areas. This slow-moving and supported class is based on Critical Alignment Yoga Therapy techniques and will help you discover how to move your body in a more functional and healthy way. This class is limited to 12 participants to allow room for individual guidance and adjustments.
