Noelle is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher. She came to her practice at 17, teaching herself postures and sequences from a yoga book, quickly developing a very strong, committed home practice. She fell in love with the intensity of holding the physical postures, the creativity of creating her own sequences and the freedom to explore; which eventually led her to teaching. Noelle attended the University of Rhode Island where she studied Kinesiology with a focus in exercise science. In 2013 she completed her Level 1 YogaFit certification and taught yoga at the Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center at the University of Rhode Island. She completed her teacher training at Raffa Yoga in December 2015. Noelle brings her playful spirit, humor, and love for yoga to her classes; as well as her strong background in anatomy and understanding of the body in motion. Noelle teaches from an authentic place with the intention of presenting yoga in a way that is accessible for everyone. Classes are mindfully taught to draw attention to alignment and towards cultivating strength. Noelle teaches creative sequences to the backdrop of carefully crafted playlists that compliment the progression of the class and enhance the overall experience.
Noelle Curren instructs the following:
All Levels Vinyasa
Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. These classes will offer a challenging flow usually with longer holds but always with a focus on breath and movement. We will flow through fun, creative, and at times unexpected sequences that bring the breath along for the ride. We will leave plenty of room to refine alignment, experiment with variations, and get acquainted or reacquainted with the more subtle aspects of the practice.
All levels are welcome and supported! The room will be heated to approximately 90 degrees with a comfortable level of humidity.
Heated Slow Flow Vinyasa (PPY)
Slow Flow is a steady vinyasa performed at a slow, strong pace in a heated room. The goal is not to achieve a specific amount of postures within a set time, instead we work on being present with our breath through slow movements and postures that are grounding, build muscular endurance and create stability and focus. You will move through a different series of postures each time you attend, with a long relaxation period at the end of class. The room is heated to approximately 90 degrees with some humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.
All Levels Heated Vinyasa (PPY)
Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. Heated Power Vinyasa takes the traditional vinyasa series and incorporates a dynamic flow that detoxifies, heals and rejuvenates the body. It is a powerful, and transformational class that cultivates strength, endurance, focus, balance, and flexibility.
Instruction is based on alignment and breath. The teacher will offer challenges and refinements to more advanced students while providing structure and support for beginners. In a vinyasa class, your breath is synchronized with your movement and you will be cued to move from one pose to another on either an inhale or an exhale. Students have the opportunity to cultivate gratitude and independence in their yoga practice, while learning to integrate these tools into daily life.
Suited to students of all levels, classes are heated to 95 degrees with approximately 50% humidity to help facilitate the integration of sweat, strength and spirit.
