Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher

Noelle is a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practitioner and is drawn to this method for its ability to be a transformative and insightful tool for self discovery. She began her Ashtanga Yoga journey in 2011 with Valerie Schneiderman, then from 2013 through 2015 studied with and assisted authorized teacher Megan Riley.

Noelle has made four long trips to Mysore, India to study with R. Sharath Jois. In January 2017, she received Sharath’s blessing and authorization to teach this method.

Noelle is thrilled to bring Ashtanga Yoga to New Canaan, CT and opened the doors to AYNC at 111 Elm St. on June 5, 2017. When not on her mat, or in India, Noelle resides in Norwalk with her husband and 2 rescue dogs, one of them, a Mysore street dog, who she rescued in 2016.
