More about me

Yael Hochenberg

I come from an extensive background of dancing (ballet, jazz, modern, flamenco, and more), music (I was a performing concert pianist, have headed school music departments, and currently have a private piano teaching practice) and healing.

My teaching and working style is intuitive, spontaneous, peaceful, vibrant and energetic (depending on the day).

Having been a teacher most of my adult life, and devoted and dedicated to mind-body-spirit wellbeing, I am as comfortable leading groups of all sizes, as I am sharing one-to-one sessions.

I have built a warm Nia community of beautiful people of all ages and backgrounds, all with one common purpose: to increase JOY and wellbeing in their body and life. 

I love my regular several-times-a-week Nia classes, and also love leading longer workshops and retreats. I LOVE to move, and LOVE to share Nia, the beautiful, somatic, JOYful, movement art with everyBODY who chooses to step-in on this path with me.

I also LOVE sharing Transformational Breath sessions, and witnessing the extraordinary shifts within those that choose to join me in this powerful, awakening modality. 

My raison d'etre

I have always been drawn to the Sacred, to the mystical, to the mysterious, fuelled by several spiritual ‘awakening’ moments that have shown up and been gifted to me at key points throughout my life.

It is through this, and in the sharing of this, that I feel most in service, most immersed in the true purpose of my life.

All the beautiful work that I am so privileged to share, serves as a potent vehicle for the realisation of this purpose: raising consciousness and vibration, bringing in an increasingly revealed re-membrance and integration of who we are and why we are here. 

I am a proud mother to 2 fabulous grown up sons, a daughter, sister, friend, dog-owner, transmitter and receiver.
