Bio and Contact

General Bio:

Noelle Whittington, ERYT500 + YACEP, is an eternal Bhakti Yoga student and teacher, Yoga Teacher Training Mentor, Spiritual Life Coach, and musician. She began her journey in 2006 as a Yoga teacher, and eventually became the Co-Director of the Wilmington Yoga Center. After leading Kunga Yoga Lifestyle Teacher Training for licensed studios and mentoring Yoga studio staff for nearly 10 years, leading 12 international Yoga and Bhakti retreats and raising more than $100,000 for nonprofit organizations including the Homes of Hope India and the Farm Sanctuary,  Noelle longed for a deeper, more personal connection to her students. From this desire to reach more people and to connect on a more spiritual level, Noelle created Soul Alchemy- an online group coaching program incorporating the practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, Dance, Music, and Spirituality. Soul Alchemy Course helps people find their Soul’s true expression, so they can confidently share their vision with the world and live their dream lives. 
 
Noelle’s mission as a facilitator is to create safe and sacred space to reclaim freedom of creative expression through our bodies and voices. As a deeply devotional Bhakti Yoga student, Noelle found healing power in sacred chant and the practice of Kirtan- specifically through the magical resonance of the harmonium. She began her studies in 2013 with the Hanuman Chalisa and has been chanting every day since. In 2015 she began leading Kirtan regularly, presenting at Yoga studios and festivals, and accompanying various luminaries on vocals and harmonium from the sacred chant world including Amah Devi, Johanna Beekman, Girish, Lee Mirabai Harrington, and more. Noelle also enjoys leading various Bhakti Yoga workshops, including the popular Bhakti Mythology and Mantras course she founded in 2018. As a poet, she loves merging inspirational English lyrics with traditional Sanskrit mantra in her songwriting.
In her spare time, Noelle loves dancing, spending time in nature, and playing music with various bands in her hometown of Wilmington, NC.
