Nora Schwartz

Studying with Amy Cooper and Mona Theresa Winston, Nora completed her 200hr RYT training at the Vajrapani Teacher Training program in Mt. Shasta, CA. Focuses of her training combine the foundation of Iyengar-style alignment with the freedom of Vinyasa flow. Nora loves creating an environment in which students can experiment with props to aid alignment and making a practice challenging, yet accessible to all bodies. Her main goal is to help students embrace a practice that they can make their own and continue to grow on and off the mat!

Though I have learned and continue to learn a great deal from all the amazing teachers and students I am fortunate enough to come in contact with, Amy Cooper truly holds the teacher’s seat in my heart. Her authentic devotion to living Yoga as both teacher and student over the past 30 years is a huge inspiration to me as well as her knowledge, kindness, and honesty.
