Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher Nicolo Fonte, has been a dedicated yoga practitioner for more than 15 years. He studies and mentors with Holly Walck Kostura and has also studied with many Senior Iyengar teachers all over the world, including Europe and Australia, as well as the US. He finally decided to go up for assessment and became certified in November of 2021 after listening for many years to teachers asking “and why aren’t you teaching yet”? “Nicky”, (as he is often called), seamlessly threads philosophy throughout his classes. Without over simplifying his instructions, he is clear and concise and uses demonstrations to further deepen your understanding of the Iyengar methodology of yoga.
As an internationally renowned choreographer and a former professional dancer, Nicolo brings a unique understanding of the joy of movement and the elation one feels when deeply connected to one’s own body. He profoundly believes however, that the path of yoga is ultimately an inward journey – not performative – and through the practice of asana and pranayama, with exquisite awareness, a presence of mind is awakened to the deeper and more subtle aspects of yoga as a journey towards the Self.
