Integral Yoga certified instructor

Bryan J. Nupp, is a traditionally trained Integral Yoga Instructor, registered and certified with Yoga Alliance with his RYT 200 designation. His teaching experience ranges from yoga with children to working with seniors. He completed his training in an immersive experience, living at Satchidananda Ashram, Yogaville, for three months, living, breathing and studying the branches of yoga day and night.

This experience paired with Bryan’s cumulative experience as a student to the many different styles of yoga shows in his authentic and compassionate approach. He offers private yoga sessions with the intention of supporting your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, and customizing your yoga experience.  In his own words, “Yoga is much more than physical exercise. Yoga is a way of living.”

Many people are interested in Yoga, and are well aware of the healing, strengthening and stress reducing benefits. It is the duty of the yoga instructor to share the teachings and techniques of yoga in a safe, mindful and clear way and to always support and encourage students wherever they are at. The benefit of having the teacher one on one, or in a small group, is that you have the instructor’s full attention and focus. This interactive style enables the instructor to make personal adjustments and modifications to really customize your yoga experience. This allows for the maximum benefit and natural development of your practice.

Some of the most common benefits from a balanced yoga practice.

-Muscles are stretched, and strengthened (reduced inflammation)
