“The beauty of yoga is that it integrates all aspects of you with yourself: it challenges your body, it clears your mind, it moves your stuck emotional energy and it inspires you to live a more balanced and awakened life. Yoga, in all its traditions and variations, is the path through which you can understand yourself more fully.” – Nora Maskey

Nora Maskey, E-RYT 500, Co-director & Lead Faculty

Nora began her journey in the late 1980s, and she knew right away that yoga was the path to healing her body, strengthening her self-confidence and challenging her limiting beliefs. More than anything else, getting on the mat got her out of her head and into her body and heart. Her asana practice was her sanctuary and a great counterbalance to sitting all day in her job as an editor.

From student to teacher

Her passion for yoga inspired her to start teaching in 1990. Her journey began in a rifle range in a basement under a bowling alley! Even though it was dusty and loud, everyone learned how to move their bodies with mindfulness and skill. She loved witnessing the positive effects of the practice light up the students in the class! She felt then, and continues to feel today, that she has a wonderful opportunity to help people feel connected in body, mind and heart through the practices of yoga.

These days, her teaching includes Critical Alignment yoga and therapy and Restorative Exercise. Nora has been blessed over the years to have been guided by so many wise and wonderful teachers. Each of her mentors has generously shared their teachings and insights. She began teaching anatomy and biomechanics of yoga in 1996 and has been a facilitator in teacher training programs ever since. Along with by co-director, Alice Hong, she currently offers both 200-hour and 300-hour Yoga Alliance recognized training programs.

You can find Nora teaching: 100HR Yoga Studies, 100HR Teaching Skills, 200HR YTT, 300HR YTT, & Yoga and Movement Science


I had the opportunity to complete my 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with these two incredible teachers, and what a life enhancing journey it was. Please pass this on if you know anyone interested. This is a commitment to the Self worth journeying with.

If anyone is thinking of diving deeper into their own yoga practice by taking the 200 hour teacher training- I highly recommend Inspired Yoga Institute with Nora Maskey & Alice Hong. The love, compassion, nurturing and richness that these beautiful Souls bring to their teaching is priceless.
