about Noelle

Yoga Instructor, English Teacher, Culture Enthusiast

Certified yoga instructor with a passion for pilates and fitness training, I have combined the two complementary practices to create The Half Lotus Yogi: holistic yoga & pilates fusion!

After practicing various types of yoga for over 10 years in both the USA (my home country) and France, I decided to build a community of international yogis here in Nantes, France, so I can share my passion with you!

With this fusion practice, I hope to encourage open-mindedness, facilitate balance of the body, mind and spirit, and create an environment of physical and mental challenge and relaxation.

Our Story

Why "Half Lotus"?

Half Lotus pose, or ardha padmasana, is the modified version of padmasana, lotus pose. This seated meditating pose requires strength and flexibility in the core, hips, knees and ankles.

This pose has rejuvenating benefits for the body, mind and spirit, allowing us to release stress and open tight muscles.

Half Lotus is a pose that is attainable for all yogis, no matter your flexibility or limitations.

It implies the challenge of working to build one’s mental and physical strength and openness, while reaping the benefits of the full posture.  

Our practice is half holistic yoga & half pilates, so you can get the most out of our hour together on the mats.

Noelle’s yoga class was great! Very relaxing while still intense work out. She took the time to come see each individual student to make sure we understood the position and were getting it right. Class started and ended with short breathing exercise and meditation. I recommend 100%.

Pretty hard for a first timer. But it really felt good afterwards. Awesome way to start the Sunday. I will be back.

The Cardioga was super intense but in good way. If you are looking for a really good full body workout, this is a really good class. Noelle is encouraging but also understands everyone’s limits and is always offering helpful modifications.

The class is very nice, I prefer this type of strength training on the body. The teacher is lovely, explained well on every steps!

If you’re looking for a workout that pushes you and combines cardio with strength then this is a great class to take. I felt challenged throughout and will come back for another session!

A satisfying sweat session. This class challenges you, especially if you’re a beginner!

This full-body workout will make you sweat and you will feel it the next day! Noelle’s energy was great! I definitely recommend!

Sandra M.


I loved the class. It was intense and I realized I’m lacking in strength, but I can only improve from here. It’s a wonderful and powerful way to start off my week. Thanks so much, I looked forward to next week!
