Internationally renowned yoga teachers Kat Fowler and Matt Giordano will lead the 2017-2018 Lucky Elephant 200hr YTT.

Matt Giordano began his teaching career out of his mother’s basement with the simple intention to help his friends. Within weeks, six people multiplied into thirty, and one class a week became five. Feeling now that this was his calling, Giordano fell in love with teaching, moved to Manhattan and began honing his craft as a student and teacher. Focusing his study and teaching on body awareness instead of poses, Giordano developed techniques to help any level student rapidly develop mastery within their practice. He now travels internationally sharing what he calls Chromatic Yoga. Learn more about Matt at www.theyogimatt.com.

Kat Fowler was raised with an upbringing of eastern spirituality and yoga, and has completed over 1000 hours of training in traditional yoga philosophy, physiology & anatomy, as well as eastern energetic healing modalities. Kat’s teachings creatively and intelligently weave her love and knowledge of the energetic side of the practice with the physical, in an accessible way to students of all levels.
