Bob Newman, RYT 200

Bob Newman, RYT 200

Bob Newman is a Registered Yoga Teacher who knows firsthand what it’s like to journey back to health through yoga. In 2012 cardiologists told him his main coronary artery was 97% blocked. They performed an angioplasty and inserted two stents. As part of his recovery, and with the blessing of his doctors, Bob re-immersed himself in the practice of yoga and challenged himself to transform. Now, at the age of 73, Bob has completed several rigorous yoga teacher trainings and credits yoga and a healthy lifestyle for his fitness, happiness, and passion for helping others see that yoga is for everyone and they too can recover from illness and transform their lives. Bob’s wide-ranging interest in yoga has led him to obtain multiple teacher certifications including Kids Yoga, Teaching Yoga to Special Needs Children and Adults, Meditation, Therapeutic Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage and Restorative Yoga

Bob likes to take his students thru a meaningful and positive practice. The practice could be restorative or power or anything in between. He teaches to the student’s ability. Bob always offers modifications to a pose so the students are comfortable and won’t hurt themselves. His knowledge of anatomy and alignment allows him to assist the student in his/her pose. One of Bob’s favorite classes to teach is his Yin Stretch & Yoga Nidra. It is the ultimate in relaxation! Students immediately feel the benefits of these two types of meditative yoga. And, absolutely no prior yoga experience is necessary! Yoga Nidra is an ancient systematic form of guided visualization and relaxation. It is also known as “yogic sleep”. Practitioners say that it often brings immediate physical benefits, such as reduced stress and better sleep. Bob likes to call this class “Yummy”.
