What is SOMA Breath?

SOMA breath is an amazing breathing technique based on ancient yogic breathing principles and mixed with modern technology to bring you into a state of coherency and harmony. Your personal energy levels are increased and you can access higher states of being and living in flow.

SOMA breath was founded by Niraj Naik in 2012 after he cured himself of ulcerative colitis, a degenerative disease, using breathing techniques and positive visualisations. Following this he developed breathing in beats technology to get participants into specific rhythmic breathing pattens to induce states of deep relaxation and heart coherence. The deeply meditative effects of SOMA breath induce Alpha and Gamma brainwave states which allow us to literally re-write our subconscious beliefs.

Using a combination of scientifically proven breathwork and Pranayama techniques, SOMA Breath is a remarkable process for reaching heightened states of consciousness and ecstatic bliss.

Breathwork and holding your breath is the key to your physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual well-being. It’s the key to your creativity, your intuition, living in flow state, living authentically, and living in pure joy.

What happens in a SOMA Breath session?

Typically we start with movement to awaken the SOMA, the body, and activate both hemispheres of the brain. This is followed by Toning or chanting to awaken the different energy centres in the body and endocrine system. Toning is also deeply relaxing. We then move into the meditation and breathwork part of the session which can be done seated or lying down. Rhythmic breathing is combined with Kumbhaka, breath retention, both with empty lungs and full lungs enabling us to override the autonomic nervous system and access the most primitive parts of the brain. Using positive visualisation we can absorb qualities we’d like to enhance, or simply relax and enjoy the stillness. SOMA breath leaves you feeling refreshed, clear-headed, uplifted and calm.


I joined Noona’s classes back in Summer 2014 and haven’t looked back. Participating in Noona’s Hatha Yoga classes made such an immediate positive change impact in my life. It’s the only thing I actually take time out to do for myself. I always feel physically and mentally better after every class. Oh and the Pop up outdoor yoga classes are a must!!



Since my first lesson with Noona nearly two years ago I’m a dedicated follower! She is such a gentle & giving soul, I leave each class floating on a cloud. For me her teaching style is the perfect balance of physical and spiritual & she shares her passion in such an inspiring & generous way. Recommend her whole-heartedly to anyone looking to discover yoga for the first time or to progress with their practice, a wonderful teacher 🙂



Yoga by the beach & Pre-Natal Yoga: I love Noona’s teaching method! Had a class with her at the beach which was an amazing experience. Now I’ve been having regular specific Pre-Natal classes which change according to how the body is through each stage of the pregnancy, always addressing the more sensitive areas. The combination of active movement and relaxation is perfect!



Wonderful and Enriching Yoga. I love Noona’s classes – I have been doing yoga for quite some years but her classes are a breath of fresh air. She has a calm and kind voice, I feel comfortable and supported in her classes and find her yoga very empowering and grounding. To me, her classes are about power, self awareness and respect.



Wonderful pre-natal Classes: I discovered this class when I was already in my 7th month of pregnancy and I wish I had discovered it earlier. Noona makes you feel comfortable with her warm and welcoming spirit! It doesn’t feel slow and annoying but really relaxing and helpful for body and mind, and all aches, pains, questions, and concerns are welcome. The studio is also very clean and modern.



“Reiki with Noona was an unbelievably relaxing experience and a treatment I would thoroughly recommend to anyone. The Japanese technique is used to reduce stress and promote healing by clearing your energy channels. When these get blocked we can feel down or get sick so if they are clear we are more capable of being happy and healthy. I truly believe that we all deserve to take some time out for ourselves and ‘re-boot’ and this is a wonderful, non-invasive way to do that. The sounds and smells that welcomed me in the room instantly calmed me and then being wrapped up in blankets was heavenly. I don’t remember being so incredibly and fully relaxed and secure for a very long time. I really did feel as if time stopped and that I had rested for hours and hours and hours. My body felt light and my mind felt calm. Just lovely.”

I had a truly amazing experience with Noona at her last SOMA breathing session. If you haven’t tried SOMA breathing before I would highly recommend that you give it a go. The breathing techniques in SOMA breathing are not new, neither many of the concepts, they are taken from yogic traditions and many of you may recognize them. What is new is how they are delivered incorporating music and guided visualisations presented in a particular sequence. For the un-initiated this means that the breathing techniques become much more accessible and easier to relate to. Effectively they are a gateway to an altered state of consciousness – some would say higher – but you need to experience it yourself to make your own judgement. Noona presents the class in a beautifully grounded straight forward and playful manner imparting lightness, joy and knowledge. For me her style embodies what is key to SOMA breath work: a profound meditation experience which is not shrouded in esoteric mysticism, accessible to all without a lifetime’s committed practice. This is an important piece of the puzzle to a shift in consciousness and we are blessed to have her introduce it to us on the coast. There is a lot of choice on the transformational playing field – so much so that one gets dizzy in deciding which thread to follow. SOMA breathing is one to try. Give her next class a go, I guarantee it will be interesting at the very least and possibly a LOT more 🦄🦄🦄

For someone who struggles to meditate and switch off, SOMA with Noona was fantastic. Her voice is so relaxing and enchanting to listen to. By focusing on the music and the different types of breathing it really helps to focus the mind. I came out feeling relaxed and so happy, a feeling that I carried with me all weekend. I am completely hooked!
