Welcome to YogaDevon. My name is Naomi Chunilal and this website, YogaDevon is about the yoga classes, workshops and complementary therapies I offer in North Devon.

I am a yoga and meditation teacher, registered with the British Wheel of Yoga, with over twenty five years of practice experience; also a professional and experienced holistic bodywork practitioner and complementary therapist.

Yoga Classes

At YogaDevon, I teach yoga classes and workshops across North Devon for all ages and abilities. As you practice yoga, you will explore and open up your emotional and physical edges within mind and body, finding greater wellbeing, vitality and ease to take with you when you step off your yoga mat. My teaching objective is to inspire, support and guide you to deepen your understanding and insight enjoyed in life, through the reflection of your yoga practice.

Complimentary Therapies

At YogaDevon, I offer therapeutic bodywork treatments including aromatherapy, holistic massage, reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Reiki. These can be a powerful catalyst to support you on your journey of self-healing and wellness.


At YogaDevon, I also facilitate workshops through the year across North Devon: Yoga through the seasons, Mindfulness, Reiki attunements, Reflexology, Massage, Meditation; also Hatha, Yin and Heart Vinyasa flow yoga workshops to develop different aspects of your practice.

Publications: ‘the Mindful Mother’

bookAlso, the author of ‘The Mindful Mother: a Practical and Spiritual Guide to Enjoying Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond with Mindfulness,’ published by Watkins Publishing (2015), available at Amazon and Waterstones.

‘The Mindful Mother’ offers simple guidance and inspiration to support you through pregnancy, labour and into early motherhood. Through meditation and self-awareness techniques using Buddhist and yoga practices, you can cultivate a mindfulness practice through the joys and challenges of becoming a mother. For women who want to understand the paradox of ‘I really love my baby and family but….” and consciously enjoy growing into mothering life.


This is a book I highly recommend to mothers and mothers-to-be. It is like an insightful friend who understands deeply what becoming and being a mother really means. — Janet Balaskas, Founder of Active Birth 

Naomi’s book is inspiring and encouraging, realistic and open-hearted. She addresses the deep challenges and joys of mothering from a truly profound perspective and her book will be of huge benefit to any woman who ever pauses to think about just what we are trying to do when we mother our children. –Uma Thuli Dinsmore, Founder of the Womb Yoga Movement

An essential guide every woman will benefit from reading, as she moves on her journey through pregnancy and into motherhood. It will encourage and empower you to think about your new role as a mother in a unique, more mindful way, and the part you play in the glorious process of creation as you bring new life into the world. –Tara Lee, leading pregnancy and postnatal teacher, The Life Centre, London

A book you will keep referring to help inspire a spiritual mindful practice in the day-to-day of motherhood.  A book full of gems and aha moments using simple and helpful tools and practices to keep you connected to yourself while looking after your family. –Nadia Narain, Head of Pregnancy Yoga, Triyoga, London
