Hatha Foundations for Teachersw/ Kelly Noah​

This class will be offered in the BORP fitness studio Thursdays and Fridays 9-10 am from June 14th until the end of July.

Kelly Noah received her 200 and 300-hour yoga teacher training from Piedmont Yoga Studio from 2016-2018. She teaches and practices Hatha yoga with an emphasis on easeful movement, strengthening postures, and meditation. Kelly believes that yoga offers a unique opportunity to increase easeful body movement and deeply connect with oneself at the same time. In addition to Piedmont Yoga’s Deep Healing, Spiritual Justice, and Nature as Teacher training, Kelly has also taken the Prison Yoga Project training, The Art of Yoga Project training, and Leslie Howard’s Pelvic Floor training. Kelly is also an avid swimmer and swim coach, and when she is not at the pool or on the mat, she enjoys dancing and cooking.

Class description: Exploring the basic postures and breathing techniques used in Hatha Yoga, this class encourages gentle opening of the body and increased mind-body awareness. Using a combination of easeful movement, strengthening postures, and meditation, this class moves at a slow pace and is well-suited for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners looking to slow down.
