Here's what others have to say about working and practicing with Nora.

The YTT with Nora was life-changing and I couldn’t have asked for a better environment to learn.  As someone who was juggling a full-time job, having a family, and the yoga teacher training, I very much appreciated that all sessions were recorded and accessible to review anytime. TBH, I’m not sure if I could have done it any other way.

They say when the student is ready the teacher will appear - I was ready to learn and Nora appeared! Nora is a fantastic teacher with a great ability to break down the poses and explain everything. I highly recommend her YTT and classes.

Nora’s 200 Hour Yogaaah Teacher Training course was so informative and inspirational, beyond words. I felt it was complete, thorough and extremely organized. My personal practice grew immensely and I was changed by it. Nora Benian is an inspired, informed, kind and patient teacher who delivers a great expansive subject with great ease and clarity. 

I recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their personal practice and or becoming a yoga teacher. I assure you will feel like one after.  

Thanks again Nora.  These will be days I will always remember!! 

I became fond of Nora’s style of teaching from the beginning because her organic way of transmitting knowledge which landed very well with me. She encouraged me listen to my body while having clear directions to keep myself safe during practice.

I cannot reinforce how much I like Nora’s classes, workshops and trainings. I am very lucky to have her as my teacher and since I have enriched my practice and grown so much as a teacher."

Nora has been teaching Yoga at Burgundy Asset Management Ltd since 2010. Her classes are life changing. She is a fantastic teacher and the things we learn in her one hour classes are so applicable to every day living and working well in a very busy corporate world. Nora’s classes do not only focus on the physical side of yoga, she has taught us the most simple but effective techniques of calming ones mind which really results in clarity of thought and purpose. I would recommend that every business make Nora’s classes available to their staff, everyone will benefit.

Nora is a knowledgeable and gifted teacher. Her presence and teachings are a gift to the world.

Thank you so much for the lovely days I spent with you learning and practicing restorative yoga!  I learned a lot about the process and myself and will be teaching what I learned from you this week.

The Restorative Yoga Teacher training is a very comprehensive course and designed for all levels of teachers.  I felt immense support from Nora throughout the whole training.  She is highly educated in all aspects of yoga, you'll leave this course fully prepared to go out and teach restorative.  Nora is a kind individual who brings light and laughter to some of the intensities of yoga training.  I've received so much from this experience and feel completely capable to teach restorative yoga.

 

THANK YOU NORA!!!!!

Nora's experienced, compassionate, detail-oriented guidance allowed me to feel incredibly safe and supported in my studies and practice.

 

Her training had depth and inclusivity which was fostered by some amazingly dedicated co- instructors. I began to truly appreciate the vast realm that is Yoga. Anatomy classes left me awestruck and Philosophy broadened my perspective. The other subjects were equally enriching.

You will be glad you did.

I found Nora when I was experiencing great back pain and intense anxiety. 

Nora listened closely to my story about when it started and asked many questions which helped uncover the source of the pain. She guided me through many different exercises to help alleviate the pain and also my anxiety was greatly reduced. Now I am 'back to wellness' and can function normally again. Thanks Nora,
