Integral Code of Ethics
"As an Integral Yoga instructor, I will strive to live in accordance with the principles of Yoga. To the best of my ability, I will adhere to the precepts of yama and niyama, which include non-violence, truthfulness and purity. As I am dedicated to the well being of my students, I will conduct myself with integrity in all my interactions with them. I will do my best to keep up my yoga practice for both my personal growth and to be a good example for my students. I realize that it is a privilege to serve in this way, and am grateful for the opportunity to do so."
Bryan's Teaching Experience
I have been teaching yoga regularly for almost three years. My training as an Integral Yoga Instructor helped set a strong foundation for a balanced and holistic practice. Since then my style of practice has evolved as I've worked with a wide demographic, at Studios, Gyms, Senior Centers, Day Care Facilities, School's, Corporations, with private client's at wellness centers and even in people's backyards! I also had the opportunity to participate in an Ancestral Knowledge Retreat in March of 2017, where I taught my first international yoga classes at a spiritual ecolodge in Colombia, South America, and participated in the rebirthing ceremonies.
This wealth of experience with a wide group of ages, interests and experience levels has given me the chance to evolve as a teacher, and find a style that is authentic, inspiring and engaging.
The Light Within Us Smiles at the Light Within You,
May your Inner Fire Burn Brightly, and May Your Radiant Self Shine Forth!
Looking forward to Seeing You In Class.
Bryan and Em
My name is Bryan Nupp and I am an Integral Yoga certified instructor, a practitioner of Usui Reiki, and a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. I will forever be a student, and am honored to share what has been passed down to me with all who are interested.
My intention is to provide a nourishing and nurturing space for people to share in this beautiful practice. My intention is to share the joys of yoga and my own transformation with the world. My intention is to be a helper, to Reunite with the Source, to Reunite with Love over and over again. My goal is to support all whom I cross paths with in a benevolent way.
People return to their mats for a variety of reasons, all of which are valid. Whether their goals are increasing strength and flexibility, or they are seeking peace amidst the chaos of the mind, my hope is that these teachings may help all beings be healthy, happy and free to enjoy life to the fullest.
I graduated from Carroll Community College in 2014 and am currently enrolled at Ashford University pursuing my B.A. in Health and Wellness. Outside of my studies I spend time immersed in nature and my gardens, lifting weights at the gym I teach at, and keeping physically active. Playing and listening to music, reading a good fantasy or sci-fi book, or studying something new are also hobbies of mine. As I have a love for all things that grow, you may also see me in the community turning a shovel, working with plants, pushing a wheel barrow, and helping to create a beautifully heart felt landscape. Another passion of mine is serving food, which makes cooking and gardening a big part of my life.
Of Course, there’s Yoga, which has been the main staple of my sense of well-being since the end of 2011. Yoga is so much more than exercise and being able to touch your toes! It is a way of life that has brought me peace and healing, good health and happiness, all of which I am grateful for. It is a science of training the mind, and living harmoniously with the world around us.
In autumn of 2015, I chose to go and live at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville, which is a peaceful interfaith community created by the modern yoga master Swami Satchidananda. Where "Truth is One and Paths are Many", and yoga Is a way of life. This immersive experience enriched and changed my life, deepened my yoga practice and offered me the opportunity to become a certified yoga instructor, a lingering thought that developed over the course of my practice. Living at the ashram broadened my gratitude and perspective deeply on the practice and lifestyle of yoga. It also helped me clarify my feelings I had always had about spirituality through the study of Swami Satchidananda's compassionate interfaith theology. It was in the beauty of this experience that I was to meet the Love of my Life, my future wife, and together we've started creating a life of peace, love and yoga. Of all the things that this experience offered, it was this emphasis on "Learn, Serve, Love and Share" that has influenced my life the most.
I am here to support and guide you on this path in any way that I can. Practicing Yoga Will Transform Your Perspective on Life and Empower You to Be Happy, Healthy, and Free.
May the Light Within Shine Ever Brighter,
May the Light Within Guide You Ever Onward,
Beyond, Beyond the Beyond...and Beyond Still..
Yours in Yoga,
Bryan Josiah, RYT 200
