Noel Yatteau Noel began her yoga journey in 2005 and has studied and practiced many different styles, but has developed a lasting dedication to the alignment based practice of Iyengar yoga. The beauty of Iyengar is that it is a great unifier; as it is challenging, yet accessible to all fitness levels and body types. In our sedentary culture, it is a wonderful tool to introduce the joy of motion, and a release from pain, through knowledge of safe, structural alignment. The privilege is in the practice, and it is with humble gratitude that she hopes to share her knowledge with her students and help them on their own journey of self-discovery.
