HOMETOWN

Sydney, Australia


PHILOSOPHY

Yoga for me is all about an integrated wholistic practice of mind, body, soul, strength. It is on our mats that we carve out space to become consciously embodied, to meditate, to draw from ancient teachings, and most importantly to connect (yog; to yoke; yoga in the Sanskrit) to the Divine. 

Naomi’s path is of devotion to Christ (Sadguru Yeshu Ji), and it is from this path that she draws her practice and sets her drishti (yogic concept of ‘gaze’ or intention) on the teachings of Jesus. Care is taken to not push her spiritual path on her students, but with love and respect to share beautiful teachings from the path that has so deeply captured her heart.
