Yoga has been in Nora Dybdal’s life for as long as she can remember; yoga-playing and practicing with her mom since she was a toddler. Nora completed a teacher training in the Sivananda tradition in 2004. She completed a second 200 hour teacher training at The Kripalu Center in 2014, where she found great inspiration and renewed excitement about the teachings of yoga. In 2015, she had the pleasure of studying with Tara Rachel Jones of Flower Yoga and receiving her 95 hour children’s yoga teacher training certificate.
Nora is excited to bring the benefits of yoga to our youth, since she found it such a gift to have herself from a young age. She finds great inspiration from her son and her experience as a mother. Nora is also a licensed massage therapist; she graduated from The Muscular Therapy Institute – Cortiva Boston in 2008 with a 900 hour training certification in Massage Therapy. She has a private massage therapy practice in Arlington. Nora brings her background in anthropology, natural sciences, massage and yoga training to offer yoga classes that are accessible to a variety of age groups and abilities and that are rich with imagery, awareness of natural world, attention on the senses, encouraging students to cultivate their objective witness and self compassion.
