Naomi Pickrell-Young - Founder, Yoga Instructor
We are everything you would hope a wholistic centre focused on healing, resilience and wellbeing would be...
A process of trust, understanding & patience
Naomi has completed her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Michelle Merrifield at Essence of Living in 2013. Since then she has continued to practice Ashtanga yoga and Zen under the guidance of her teacher, Mark Togni.
She also founded BE FREE YOGA – a not for profit organisation aimed at uniting, inspiring and mobilising the yoga community to take action to end human trafficking and sex slavery, as well as empowering and healing survivors through yoga. In 2014 she travelled to Cambodia to establish a trauma sensitive yoga therapy program for the survivors at AFESIP’s rehabilitation centres in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
Her teaching style is simple, with a focus on movement and breath…you don’t have to be flexibly or strong, if you can breathe, you can practice.
