Naomi Harris – RYT200

After a brief introduction in my teens, I ‘rediscovered’ yoga in my mid-twenties as a way to control my weight and back pain. It began as a physical pursuit but, as is the case for many, I found that the joy and peace I found from the class compelled me to learn more. I arrived quite early at the knowledge that I wanted to teach yoga but it took a few years for my confidence to build enough to undertake the challenge.

For quite some time, I searched for a school with a true spiritual core and a strong physicality. I discovered the Moksha Academy of Yoga (RYS200) and undertook their RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training Course. Balancing my work and study was trialing, at times almost overwhelming but so rewarding. It brings me great joy to now be passing the baton on – to be teaching at the school that welcomed and inspired me.

Now in my thirties, I really enjoy the focus and meaning that yoga brings to my daily life. I continue the quest to be truly content in the present moment, to be intuitive and a student in all things.

I love to teach Vinyasa (flow) and have recently undertaken workshops in Senior’s, Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga. I’m so lucky to have turned my passion into a career and look forward to continuing to share this lifestyle with others.

What/Who inspires me? 

“Courageous people! Frida Kahlo, Martin Luther King Jr, my Mum. The poetry of Judith Wright, the photography of Robert Frank. The yoga of B.K.S Iyengar and Seane Corn.”

What Moksha means to me? 

“Moksha represents quality of practice and the sharing of ideas. It’s a place where you’ll be met with challenge and compassion.”

Inspiration

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
