Nora Belton

Daughter of a political activist and a nature lover, Nora graduated from University with a degree in Foreign Launguages and Psychology.  She went on to become a performing artist, living in Paris for 7 years.  She ended her career in Modern Dance when she moved to Spain in 1984 and began teaching the discipline that her mother introduced to her at the age of 12 and that remained a constant part of her life, Hatha Yoga.

A single mother, she also supported herself with Tofu production and Macrobiotic consulting, and performing in a musical duo.  In 1990 she met Gurumayi Chidvilasananda and a few years later travelled to India to deepen her meditation practice under Gurumayi’s guidance.  In 1992 she began to work as a Massage Therapist, continuing her training in different techniques to this day.  That year she also took Yoga Teacher Training with SUNRA, a UK based school run by Narayani and by Barbara Gordon of the Sivananda tradition.  10 years later Nora joined the SUNRA team and became a Yoga Teacher Trainer, teaching with SUNRA for the next 6 years.  In  November of 2007 she took a hiatus of 3 years to rest, travel, and amplify her experience and joy of Yoga with teachers of various different schools, mostly in Mexico and California doing some substitute teaching at Maya Tulum and The Yoga Loft.   During this time she decided to widen her  practice, certifying as a Yoga Therapist with Ananda Seva in Santa Rosa, California.

In March of 2010, after 18 years of practicing Reiki, Nora was initiated as Reiki Master by Phyllis Lei Furumoto, bearer of the Usui Shiki Ryoho Lineage, in Tucson, Arizona.  On returning to Ibiza she  managed  “Espacio Saraswati” in the countryside of Santa Eulalia and worked for several years with a therapeutic team at the only Chiropractic Clinic in Ibiza Town, “Centro Arbol de la Vida.” She presently teaches weekly Yoga classes and leads Yoga Teacher Trainings and Reiki courses from her home-based “Saraswati Space.”
