Who's teaching ?
It's me, Noémie. Besides my job as a movement educator, I'm also an analog photographer and an illustrator.
Former vinyasa yoga teacher, I quickly became interested in introducing different movement modalities into my teaching. My classes blend yoga, somatics, task-based, and floor-based movements, and are informed by research in the field of movement science and neuroscience. I am as passionate about the scientific aspect of movement as I am about its intuitive and exploratory forms.
Many movement disciplines have a binary vision of movements, thinking that there is a "safe" and "unsafe", or "good" and "bad" way to execute them. However, I believe that there is more nuanced than that; it's important to remember that the human body is extremely adaptable and capable, so the choice of how to move depends mainly on what our goals are. Are we looking for a certain aesthetic ? A certain muscle activation ? A certain experience ?
As I don't believe that alignment is necessary to protect our bodies, I prefer to promote movement progression, variability, inquiry, and exploration, as ways to develop a resilient body and nervous system.
Since my intention is to offer classes that are evidence-based, educative and inquisitive, I aim to guide you in a practice that isn't just helping you to become stronger and more mobile over time but is also going to improve your critical thinking, awareness, confidence, and knowledge about your body.
