Noelle discovered yoga shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2008 and has been practicing ever since. She was immediately hooked, and was captivated by how much it helped her to build strength both mentally and physically, while allowing her to find peace and serenity. She has always had a love of dance, and is fascinated with the way bodies can find freedom through movement. She also has a background in ecological studies and is deeply passionate about the natural world. Her classes incorporate these notions, while creating a safe and nurturing environment for students to practice and grow. She received her 200 hour RYT at Onyx Yoga Studio in Warren, NJ and will be forever grateful to Shannon Elliot and Inna Hekler and all other teachers past, present and future for sharing their knowledge and love of yoga. She hopes that she can continue to share these teachings so others will be able to realize the same benefits and make yoga a sustainable part of their lives.

Yin Yoga by Candlelight
Yin Yoga is a simple, quiet, in-drawn practice that uses steady, long-held postures that benefit your “yin,” connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. Poses are held 3 to 5 minutes each with all muscles relaxed and released.
Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, that aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. It can be practiced by everybody and will complement an already active life or help those who feel distracted by “mind chatter”.
This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
