Meet Our Staff Volume Seven: Naomi Buck

Naomi Buck

1) Why do you choose YoBa?
I love teaching at Yoba, but more than that, I love learning at Yoba! I adore all of the teachers and the unique insights they bring to my practice. Yoba is about community--moving together, learning together, and sometimes falling together. There is no other studio in Raleigh that has such a great tribe of men and women who continue to show up for one another. At Yoba, it is about more than just barre or yoga, or building strength. It is about the magic we create when we are learning and growing together.

2) What do you love about infrared heat?
Ah, the heat at Yoba is unlike any other hot yoga studio. I love how it is easy to breathe in the space, how the heat helps relax my muscles and my mind, and how it can easily be regulated to fit the needs of the class. 

3) Raleigh Guide:
     a) Favorite places to eat: Stanbury, The Station, Raleigh Raw, Sola, Whiskey Kitchen
     b) Favorite places to play: Yoba, FlyWheel, Pelagic Beer and Wine, Falls Lake, Boxcar, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
     c) Favorite places to shop: Flourish Market, Trellis Beauty, Edge of Urge

4) If you had to plan out your perfect day in Raleigh, what would you do?
Raleigh is perfect all year, and has so much to offer. I'm obsessed with my little neighborhood and think everything in Mordecai is perfect. Wandering the historic streets is one of my favorite things, especially with a stop at Yellow Dog or Pelagic. During the summer, I love early morning kayaking on Falls Lake and late dinners with friends. Every perfect day includes yoga or barre at Yoba and catching up with friends in the studio. This city is great and it is really fun to be a part of the growth.
