Nel Norwesh, a yoga instructor at EVO, took her first Hatha yoga class when she was 10 and fell in love with the blending of breath, movement, and meditation. In her youth, she implemented meditation techniques for performance enhancement in USCF cycling competition. She studied cultural dance and yoga in earnest during her 20ʼs. Avidly hiking and seeking athletic adventures inspired her to meld multi-faceted movement experiences into asana practice. In 2008 she completed certification to become a Kripalu Yoga Teacher. Norwesh continually supplements her training with advanced teachings in innovative yoga asana and meditation practices with established figures Siva Rea, Parvathi Nanda Nath, and an array of talented instructors. She teaches students of all ages and abilities and co-teaches yoga teacher trainings. Friends introduced her to scrambling and climbing at Rumney a few years ago after she moved to New Hampshire from Phoenix, AZ. Norwesh is enjoying that early crush phase of being a novice climber. Her observations of, and dialogue with climbers and their methods of movement compel her to design flow yoga sequences that benefit climbers. She is delighted to be involved with the EVO movement.
