Bryan's Teaching Experience
I have been teaching yoga regularly since November 2015. My training as an Integral Yoga Instructor helped set a strong foundation for a balanced and holistic practice. Since then my style has evolved as I've worked with a wide demographic. Teaching at Studios, gyms, senior centers, day care facilities, schools, 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 plant medicine and purification ceremonies. It is an honor to be part of the Ancestral Knowledge Medicine Tribe.
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 the creator/owner of Reuniting Yoga! I am an Integral Yoga certified instructor, a practitioner of Usui Reiki, and a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. I also have my bachelors degree in Health and Wellness, with a focus on exercise science, behavior change strategies and lifestyle wellness. I am honored to share what has been passed down to me with all who are interested. My goal in life is to always keep learning and sharing.
My intention is to provide a nourishing and nurturing space for people to grow spiritually, to really feel well. My intention is to share the joys of yoga and my own transformation with the world. My intention is to help others, 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 come to yoga and meditation for a variety of reasons, all of which are valid. As Swami Satchidananda said, "Truth is One, Paths are Many, Let us Live in Peace and Joy."
My hope is that by sharing these teachings all beings will realize perfect health, happiness and freedom to enjoy life to the fullest.
Outside of my studies I spend time immersed in nature, taking dogs on walks, going for hikes, gardening, and keeping physically active. As I have a love for all things that grow, you may also see me in the community helping with a landscaping project, which has been a residual source of income since I began my partnership with Charles Poehlman in November of 2012.
Yoga, which has been my main focus and the staple of my well-being since the end of 2011 is something I will always be a student of. Yoga is so much more than headstands 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/serve at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville, which is a peaceful interfaith community created by the modern yoga master Swami Satchidananda. 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
