Naomi has been teaching for 13 years. She originally qualified as a Physical Education teacher with a great interest and passion for exercise, activity and a healthy lifestyle.  Naomi began practicing Yoga in Dublin and went on to travel around the world practicing Yoga in India, Nepal, New Zealand and China.  She undertook her 200 hours teacher training qualification with the YTTC in Dublin and has since then continued training with many world renowned teachers in Ireland and abroad.  After completing her Pilates teaching qualification, Naomi went on to set up her own business teaching both disciplines full time in 2012.  

Participating in various activities over the years and with many years experience in physical training, Naomi has found that Yoga and Pilates balance the body and have given her a deep appreciation and experience in mental training to create an holistic approach to fitness and health.  

She teaches community and studio classes regularly in Dublin, leads retreats, trains Yoga teachers and offers continuing education.  Naomi's approach to teaching and her passion for education lies in giving individuals options to make empowered choices for their own health and well being.   She believes we can all develop the tools and skills we need to live true to our best Self.

As well as teaching in person, Naomi writes a weekly email ‘Zen in the City’ and contributes to online media publications, offering practices and perspectives for a sense of calm and contentment in our lives.

When not on her mat or teaching, Naomi also loves getting outdoors, rock climbing, the sea and coffee!
