Noel Bodwell

Noel has been teaching yoga since 2002 and leads our members through a number of Yoga styles and sequences. She has a BS in Physical Education which she received from Plymouth State in NH. In 2009, she retired as a Special Education teacher from Laconia Middle School after a 30 year career in education. We enjoy her guidance during the summer months, as she currently spends her winters in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Noel has completed 7 marathons, numerous road races from 5K’s to half-marathons and trail races up to the 20 miles long. Not to mention, she also participated in Masters indoor track. Although she has left the racing circuit, Noel enjoys staying active by hiking, trail running, paddling, x-country skiing and snowshoeing. She spends her time off with her husband, Kim, and her son, Ian.

Noel explains, “Teaching yoga at The Fitness Edge provides me an opportunity to assist people in using their breath as a thread to connect their physical, spiritual and emotional selves. Yoga is a path to self-discovery. Taking the lessons I learn about myself on the mat into my daily life is the essence of my yoga practice.”
