Jessica
Founder of MPM & Certified Yoga Teacher & Mentor

Middle Path Movement™ was founded by Jessica Noifeld, whilst travelling the world in search of Self Healing tools, for an auto immune disease, that she had been diagnosed with as a child.

Jessica has been teaching and practising yoga in all its forms for several years. She has been traveling the world, studying holistic therapies for over 14 years and Middle Path Movement has been her tool for hosting and curating retreats and yoga teacher training courses worldwide – from wellness retreats in Jamaica to yoga treks to Everest base camp – all her creations focus on the vision of Self Healing, Self Mastery, Facing Fears and finding inner balance, whilst learning from new lands and different cultures.

She is an accredited E-500 RYT and YACEP Qualified Yoga Teacher Trainer, Reiki Master, Pregnancy Yoga Teacher and Thai massage therapist.

Having explored several cultures from a very young age and studied alongside multiple indigenous teachers, she shares her personal experiences of Self-Healing an auto-immune disease whilst travelling the world, in all stems of yoga but finds the most vibrancy in studying and teaching about the philosophy of yoga, which she often speaks about on her podcast - ‘egolution’.

Part of Jessicas personal holistic practice is writing, and this formed her inspiration for the publication of her first book, ‘Egolution-Volume 1-Revolution Starts Within’ a collection of philosophical poems written after the stillness of meditation.

As Jessica’s family is growing, she now curates many of your experiences and trainings from her home in London, still attending retreats and trainings abroad as she can.

Sara
Partner at MPM & Ceritified Yoga Teacher

Spending time in stillness, writing poetry and reconnecting through a variety of practices, Sara found the middle ground, the balance she’d been searching for.

Her ability to connect with others on a deep emotional level directed her down a path that enabled her to serve others by supporting and guiding people spiritually on their similar journeys whilst sharing her insights & learnings from her Vipassana practice and the poetry she writes & recites.

Sami
Lead Yoga Teacher

Sami is a highly experienced yoga teacher with an international background. He is committed to healing the mind through good actions, love and compassion. His only purpose is to spread the knowledge that it is possible to find genuine and lasting happiness by taming and training your own mind.

His practice is known for being wise, focused and fun. He has explored different kinds of practices, searching for a lighter body and mind and dedicated his studies to Traditional Hatha, the alignment of Iyengar and the flow of Ashtanga Vinyasa. To settle his mind and find balance between the sun and moon, he dedicates his continued education to studying Yin Yoga, Qi Gong, Vipassana and Shamatha Meditation and Buddhist philosophy.

He noticed that Yoga adapts itself according to the practitioner and social aspects. Translating this knowledge and making it available to our current time is wisdom.

Our generation has different needs than the past generation. We are colourful, diverse, inclusive and accepting. Some of us notice that the world that we live in needs rest, silence and awareness. In order to heal ourselves, we need to heal our community, the environment and the society that we live in. Yoga is about that. The healing path is grounded on healing others.

Sami is a free soul. Always on the road and experienced with different cultures, he has become a citizen with no borders. It is hard to say where he is really from. He was born in Brazil and carries that playful and enthusiastic joy. Also, his practices are noticeably a great influence of Arabic culture and wisdom, especially with their warm hospitality and generosity. All that combined with ancient wisdom, discipline and respect only found in Asia. Sami’s trainings were held in India, where he regularly returns to renew his knowledge and vows.

His experience includes teaching in different countries, such as India, Egypt, Morocco, Malaysia and Brazil. He has a business background which can be helpful to ground our energy.

Be prepared to laugh, work seriously, flourish your potential and find confidence in your vulnerability. His practice is a journey to the inside, healing yourself through healing the ones around you, whoever they are, whatever motivation they have, all beings matter in his practices.
