Human beings have an incredible potential for kindness, beauty, grace, efficiency, and power. Practicing Yoga actualizes those potentials in a profoundly effective way. My name is Nick Fortino. My formal education and professional work have always involved learning about what one must do, and how one must be, in order to achieve optimal physical and mental health. Istudy psychology, anatomy, and physiology. I am trained to teach Ashtanga Yoga, which is an eight-limbed system designed to cultivate stability, strength, and flexibility in the body and the mind. My intention as a teacher is to be sensitive to the demands of the students in front of me and to care sincerely. I bow inside to the wisdom of Yoga, and it is an honor to bring the teachings into others' lives. Please feel free to contact me and/or come to a class if you feel my guidance in your Yoga practice may serve you.
