ABOUT MATT GIORDANO
Yoga instructor Matt Giordano (500 ERYT) 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?'"
That inquisitive and unrelenting spirit laid the foundation for Matt to begin a devoted yoga practice.
When coupled with his passion to understand the physics and subtle alignment of the body, Matt’s dharma as a teacher came into focus.
Originally from Sea Cliff, Long Island, Giordano is primarily based in Connecticut and Manhattan,
where he teaches at local studios and shows off his daring side riding motorcycles along the open road.
Matt is often on the go, traveling internationally to teach yoga and perform acrobatics.
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.
UNLIMITED YOGA WORKSHOP
28. October Saturday, 10:00 - 12:30 h "Shoulders "Boundless Freedom"
Shoulder Openers Dissolve tension and tightness in your shoulders and learn the biomechanics that make it easy!
Many of us fall into patterns where we believe if we continually repeat an action, our goals will eventually workout. This only rings true when we are repeating a recipe for success.
Matt Giordano will offer you a yoga practice that gets you into your body and gives you a strong understanding of a complex joint that can otherwise be a bit of a mystery.
Having rehabilitated his own shoulder from a nearly shattered collarbone and fractured scapula,
Matt’s knowledge speaks from experience and an excitement to share the tools he has picked up along the way.
Boundless Freedom is appropriate for all levels. This course can be used for therapeutic and/or advancement purposes.
28. October Saturday, 14:30 - 17:00 h "Hips "Rock 'em and Unlock 'em"
Tight hips can feel impossible to open. No matter how long you stay in pigeon, the next day it’s back to square one.
Static stretching alone does not lead to flexibility. Through Matt’s deep knowledge in bodywork, yoga and anatomy, he will teach you how to transform once unyielding hip joints.
Learn how to adjust alignment, prevent knee pain and engage the muscles to support the bone structure.
This hip opener course will immerse you in the tools needed to access greater range of motion.
29. October Sunday, 10:00 - 12:30 h "Arm Balances Flying Hip Openers
Arm balances are some of the most fun, exciting, and challenging poses of the yoga practice.
Most also require flexible hips—a place many of us have tightness. Don’t let that deter you from starting arm balance practice now.
Finding hip flexibility is more than simply stretching and waiting to achieve the elasticity we desire.
With Matt, we explore techniques to find our fullest range of motion through optimal skeletal alignment and muscular engagement for deep, isometric hip strengtheners.
We will also develop a true sense of our core and how its location, stability and strength relate to our arms and hips.
Get ready to sweat, fly, and go deeper in your body in a way that is safe, healthy and absolutely powerful.
29. October Saturday, 14:30 - 17:00 h "The 4 Secrets of Handstand"

work toward mastery of the shoulder girdle, and explore acrobatic principles so you can build confidence and manifest a greater sense of balance.
