Yoga instructor Matt Giordano (500 E-RYT) gives credit to an influential figure from his teenage years--his high school art teacher-- for sparking within him the curiosity and tenacity that eventually led him to yoga. It was Eileen Walk who told Giordano: "You are not allowed to say 'I can’t.' You must rephrase to a question: 'How?'"
Originally from Sea Cliff, Long Island, Giordano is primarily based in Connecticut and Manhattan. Well-known for his ability to guide students deeply into postures with his refined attention to detail and precise action cues, Giordano is an adept guide for all-levels students at festivals, workshops and in his weekly studio classes. His study of biomechanics and integrative mind-body techniques informs his teaching, as he draws upon wisdom from traditions of yoga, martial arts (Aikido and Tae Kwan Do), acrobatics, AcroYoga and Thai Yoga Massage. In the end, Matt inspires a humble confidence, allowing students to find ease while expanding the edge of their comfort zones.
Giordano’s teaching always contains the element of “workshop”--breaking moves down into small, digestible pieces with precise language and clear, simple demos--so the intimidating and impossible may become doable. Matt ensures that no student walks away without morsels of new and repeatable knowledge.
This weekend is currently open to yoga instructors of all levels. In each session, Matt will instruct masterclasses followed by teacher-focused sessions to dive deeper into the content offered in the masterclass session. The learning environment is SMALL and intimate - a rare opportunity to work with an internationally recognized instructor. Space is limited to 23 participants.
