Nöle Giulini, C-IAYT, born in Heidelberg, Germany, has practiced and studied Yoga since the 1980s. She's certified to teach yoga by Kripalu and by Erich Schiffmann. She has studied with Richard Miller since 2003.

Her background in Art Therapy and her lifelong work as artist ( infuse depth, caring exploration and refreshing inventiveness into each session. Together with her life partner, Gary Lemons, she owns and runs Tenderpaws Yoga Studio in Port Townsend, WA.

Beginning in 2010 she began offering iRest workshops and individual sessions in the Practice of Welcoming from September through November in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland.

In 2011 Nöle translated and narrated Richard Miller's "iRest at Ease" from English into German. This recording as well as Nöle's German language guided iRest recordings are available as a download on the IRI website.

Although the process of unfolding was often extremely painful, I knew then iRest/Yoga Nidra and the Practice of Welcoming were my life's calling. Now, many years later, I see clearly how my practice of art and my practice of yoga are not separate. I always felt it was and is my work in this world to hold dear what lives in the dark and to give voice, expression and tender care to the injured, denied, rejected and broken aspects of life. Working as attentively and lovingly as possible with these aspects - whether in matter as a sculptor or with human beings as a yoga and meditation teacher is my deepest heart's longing.

"Inspired by her life long practice as a yogi Nöle developed a unique style that animates complex ancient teachings in a playful, practical, and deeply life-changing way."
