Noelle has been practicing yoga for about eight years. Yoga helped her through a particularly trying time in her life where she was told she would not regain her full mobility. After struggling with occupational therapy, a series of fortunate events brought yoga back into her life. With practice and patience, she not only regained her full mobility, but she noticed a change in my ideals and values. A light-heartedness and steadiness came with her practice and a feeling of love and healing she wished to share with others, in hopes she could help someone the way yoga and her instructor had helped her.
Noelle travelled to the mountains of Rollinsville, CO and sought out an ashram called Shoshoni. Shoshoni is one of three sister ashrams the others in Eldorado Canyon, CO and Konalani, HI. It is here where she got her 200 RYT in Shambhava yoga.
Shambhava Yoga is a blend of yogic philosophy, meditation, life skills and asana (physical poses). Asana is looked at in regards to anatomy and harm-reduction by utilizing safe alignment and utilization of props and modifications in postures.
Since her 200-hr 21-day emersion she has gone back for two other trainings in Level 2 and Level 3 intermediate classes. She holds her trainings at the ashram sacred to her heart. She drank deep from the well and is eager to help others find their light.
As a holistic healer, it is in her nature to spread love and kindness. She truly believes that everyone, any shape or form, can benefit greatly from daily practice in yoga and meditation. To find peace in a world of chaos, yoga might just calm the masses. The true self is ready and waiting to be awakened.
Noelle Tedford instructs the following:
Yoga Power Hour
Awaken with this warming Hatha Flow practice. Energize, balance, and find new space and freedom. This class begins slowly with a focus on the breath and eases into dynamic movement and posture explorations. The focus is on connecting movement and breath to free the body and mind. Each class includes breath work, warm-ups, physical postures that flow with the breath, free movement, relaxation, and meditation.
All levels of ability and experience are welcome
Slow Flow Vinyasa
In this class you will flow from one physical posture to the next using the breath as your guide and anchor (Vinyasa). This connection between movement and breath allows your practice to become a moving meditation. At times, stillness is found in order to fully settle into a physical posture. Some yoga experience is recommended. However, beginners are welcome. Modifications (the use of props and stages to poses) are incorporated in order for students to work at all levels of ability. A warm, safe, and fun environment is held throughout class. You will leave feeling relaxed, balanced, and renewed!
Yoga 4 Cancer
A diagnosis of cancer brings many challenges. Western medicine does a great job treating cancer, and more advances are made everyday. However, often the missing link for cancer survivors is a long term wellness plan for survival. Cancer treatments can often be the most debilitating physically and emotionally. Yoga can help!
This class is designed specifically to meet the unique needs of cancer survivors. Class includes a combination of movement, relaxation, and breath techniques. All are modified to be accessible through the various stages of cancer and cancer treatment. Some of the benefits of yoga for cancer are: reduced anxiety and depression, increased lymphatic flow, increased strength, flexibility and bone density, relaxation, and a community of others sharing the same needs and concerns.
This class is open to cancer survivors currently undergoing treatment or post treatment, relatives/friends/caregivers, and cancer survivors who are currently in remission or cancer free. No yoga experience is required.
*If you have had recent surgery, it's recommended that you wait until incisions have healed and drains have been removed before attending class.
