Teacher: Sunanda Bruno

Sunanda Bruno, IAYT, E-RYT 500, has been teaching yoga for almost 20 years and for the last 10 years has specialized as a yoga therapist. Sunanda has a unique blend of somatic sensory cues, neuro-kinetic movements, yoga asana and breathing techniques that focus on alignment and embodiment through movement. She teaches both group classes and works one-on-one with individuals to better use their bodies and resolve mechanical issues and limitations. Sunanda is trauma sensitive certified and has a bottom up (from body to mind) approach to resolving past trauma patterns, both psycho-emotional and physical traumas.

Sunanda’s education and understanding of yoga is extremely comprehensive. She was born into a yogic lifestyle with both her parents devout yogic practitioners, practicing many forms of yoga. By the age of 16 Sunanda had developed her own yoga practice, both in asana and the study of Yogic and Vedic texts and traditions. In high school she used the yoga therapy method to heal a goiter, and in college she began to use yoga asana to help improve scoliosis pain and posture.
