Brian Ruhmann

Brian has has over 30 years of fitness, yoga programming and therapeutic bodywork experience. 


His approach to asana instruction blends:  the biomechanics and kinesiology of his academic training, the anatomy and physiology of his massage therapy, and the physical and energetic intent of asana practice as a gateway to physical and emotional healing and spiritual development.  He believes through the physical practice of asana, the physical restrictions and holding patterns can be released with comitant release of energetic blockages, limiting mental and emotional constructs.  It is through the release of these holding patterns and healing, that one can reclaim their authenticity or divinity and fearlessly live that authenticity.
