PODCAST KEY NOTES

- Following a succesful career in Music PR, the trappings of the corporate wheel took its toll.

- An intuitive act sent Naomi to India, but it was not totally as planned.

- Living in an ashram challenged the Naomi’s conditioning from city life. Stripping back her ego/identity, several uncomfortable months of resistance followed.

- Naomi’s insight into yoga began, and a pursuit of the external physicality followed.

- Naomi developed the debilitating condition of Neuralgia leading to an intense period following the birth of her son.

- Searching for methods to control the intense pain and internal "electric shocks” Naomi returned to exploring the wider facets of yoga - The Koshas - Anandmaya, Vijnanamaya, Manomaya, Pranamaya and Annamaya Kosha.

- Connecting breath with consciousness, neurology and healing. Naomi experienced profound shifts and wanted to integrate and share that into her practice and teaching.- 

- Impassioned about the connection, Naomi views this as the way to evolve the practice, combining science and evidence rather than keeping the mysteries of healing in the hands of the few

- Yoga is a polarising place when voicing ideas that are not the norm. 

- Hugely inspired by her music background. David Bowie is a great source of inspiration in her practice as he balanced a variety of influences and ideas. Watch David Bowies interview.

"I’ve always done the things that have been very uncomfortable for me."

"That’s why I make myself teach, because if I didn’t teach I wouldn’t constantly be in front of people, and it would be very easy for me to hide."

"People who get the most out of my classes are the people that are given the opportunity to explore with some guidelines, some knowledge and some information to back up what they are doing."

"And now I’m in front of people and I’m trying to be more honest about things, and it’s very uncomfortable…I have to keep stepping up, over and over again."

"If anything is going to change, if anything is going to evolve, there has to be this contraction before the expansion."

Movers & Mavericks Podcast Naomi Absalom Yoga 16.jpg

"It’s a battle with myself, not with anyone else. I have this one life, I can hide or I can expand as much as possible. When you start to do this people get upset and I want to run and get in a hole, but I’m not going to do it."

"That has been a very firm cycle in my life, as soon as I get comfortable, I look around and go, ‘how do I make this more uncomfortable for myself?’. I have to feel this contraction, this tightness."

"It’s not necessary for everyone, but I know it’s necessary for me before there is a burst to the next stage."
