Nora Dybdal brings her background in anthropology, natural sciences, massage and yoga training to offer classes rich with imagery, attention on the senses, encouraging students to cultivate their objective witness and self compassion.
Yoga has been in Nora’s life for as long as she can remember, yoga-playing and practicing with her mom since she could crawl. Certified in the Sivananda tradition in 2001, she has been teaching yoga ever since, and has been with SoniYoga since 2007. Her formal studies continued in 2007-2008 with a 900hr Massage Training and Certification at The Muscular Therapy Institute – Cortiva Boston. She is currently working on a 90 hour children’s yoga teacher training certificate with Flower Yoga.
After a major career change from non-profit development work to yoga instructor and massage therapist, Nora feels she is now helping to support peace in the global community one individual at a time. She believes that in a time when information travels so quickly and there are so many worries that seem to pull us out of the present moment, it is important to find stillness in our environment and our own inner landscape. Yoga, meditation, and massage practices can help to develop this awareness and support a healthy lifestyle.
