More about Noelle Connolly

Noelle Connolly has always been an athlete. A Philadelphia native, former Boston Terrier Field Hockey player and graduate of Boston University, she took her first yoga class in 2002, and fell in love with the practice – mentally, physically and spiritually.

A passionate and dedicated teacher, Noelle gives her all to her students. She feels honoured and blessed to take the knowledge learned from her teachers and mentors – including Maty Ezraty, Joan Hyman and Simon Park – and share it in an authentic way.

“I hope to forever continue learning, about the asana and about myself. Yoga’s ability to ground and centre me, combined with an endless thirst for knowledge, pulls me back to the practice again and again.” Noelle Connolly

Natalia M.
Oh wow Noelle that was a good strong class???
Ana G.
I liked the pace of this class. It would be lovely to have a slower start to the class with breath work and easing into downward dograther than going straight into it. I’d like to have more verbal instruction about connecting to the inner landscape and the breath. Also savasana was far too short.

That was an impressively well designed class. Quite a bit above my level, but the warmup was good and gentle, and I was happy to go along and do as much as I could and rest or do other stretches in the advanced sections. Sound was great. Thank you!

Hi NoelleI turn 58 this year and have dreadful knees from years of running and sport so find quite a few of the poses next to impossible. But it's always fun trying and laughing at myself - or just watching and shaking my head in amazement. I'm a member at Kirrawee and can't wait till it reopens but the online has kept me sane throughout this whole time.Thankyou
Lee P.
Lovely flow! Thanks Noelle
Kristin W.

Dear Noelle, I know you sometimes mention how much you can't wait to get back to normal classes, which I totally understand, but I just thought I'd let you know that your online classes have been the unexpected upside of Covid for me! I moved out of Sydney a month before Covid, and BML yoga was the thing I knew I'd miss most (apart from my friends and the ocean!). And then boom, Covid hits, BML goes online and my life is complete again! So thank you for persevering with online streaming, with love from someone who hopes that Covid goes away but BML online does not!
Amy J.
Not a full 90 min class... so no
Roxana P.
Enjoyed very very much.I'd like to read more of Richards quotes. Are they available online?
Ruth E.
Absolutely wonderful hip class with long holds.
Marie-Helene G.
Loved yoga chill flow! Yin is a little too slow for me but this is a lovely balance with a more flowy class. Noelle is wonderful. It’s a total privilege to watch her classes live and on demand. Been the blessing of quarantine. Please keep doing these!
Shehana W.
alway like your class
