Name: Norma Nelson
Norma grew up in London, U.K and has a deep passion for music, architecture, travel, motorbikes & of course YOGA. After completing a degree in architecture and coming to a cross roads in her career, she made the decision to travel the world. She found herself settling in Thailand for a number of years, which was the start of a personal journey of self- discovery, where she found Buddhism, Yoga, Meditation and a passion for teaching.
Norma then completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in 2016 at Body Mind Life in Sydney, under the guidance of Noelle Connolly and Kat Clayton and since then has added several other modules to her portfolio including … Creative sequencing, The relationship between Science, Music & Yoga, The Art of Alignment & Assists, to name a few.
An Architect once described the relationship between yoga, meditation and architecture so perfectly… “Yoga & meditation, like Architecture, are about our awareness and space. The physical postures, the shapes we make with our bodies when joined with a curiosity about our minds, help us to develop a sense of internal spaciousness. “ Norma’s style of teaching is exactly about that. Expect a strong class with creative sequences that link conscious breath and movement, taming one’s busy mind and cultivating a larger and more appreciative view of things as they are .
