Naomi Sturdy

Naomi has been teaching for 14 years. She originally qualified as a Physical Education teacher with a great interest and passion for exercise, activity and a healthy lifestyle.

Naomi began practicing Yoga in Dublin and went on to travel around the world practicing Yoga in India, Nepal, New Zealand and China.  She undertook her 200 hours teacher training qualification with the YTTC in Dublin in 2010 and has since then continued training with many world renowned teachers in Ireland and abroad.

After completing her Pilates teaching qualification, Naomi went on to set up her own business teaching both disciplines full time in 2012.  Participating in various activities over the years and with many years experience in physical training, Naomi has found that Yoga and Pilates balance the body and have given her a deep appreciation and experience in mental training to create an holistic approach to fitness and health.  

She teaches community and studio classes regularly in Dublin, leads retreats, and offers continuing education.  Naomi co-founded 'The Art of Teaching' in 2015, and over the past four years has successfully trained individuals to become Yoga teachers.

As well as teaching in person, Naomi hosts the ‘Heart of the Matter’ podcast and writes a subscription mail offering reflections and perspectives for a sense of calm and contentment in our lives.

When not on her mat or teaching, Naomi also loves getting outdoors, rock climbing, the sea and coffee!
