World renowned yoga instructor, Matt Giordano (@theyogimatt) 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 anatomy, biomechanics and the deeper philosophical and meditative practices for the mind, Matt’s path as a teacher came into focus. Matt has a unique talent of taking a complex, challenging concept and simplifying without taking away its potency. This approach provides the revelatory "aha moments" that many of his students rave about.
