Cleo has been practicing yoga since she was 16, starting at an instructors house in the magical woods near Canaan, NY. The connection with the birds, the stream running outside, the breath, and the yoga poses expanded her awareness and consciousness. Her love for yoga blossomed and brought her to complete her 200hr yoga teacher training from Kripalu in 2011 and later to Naropa University (Boulder, CO) where she received her 1000hr yoga teacher training and B.A. in Yoga in 2013. The yoga program at Naropa enabled her to dive deeply into the ancient yogic texts, the practice of asana, the study of Sanskrit, and yoga nidra. Cleo has studied under many amazing teachers, and has gained insight through experimenting with different yoga styles, which ultimately enabled her to find her own distinct teaching method and flow. Cleo started Rainbow Body Yoga in 2014 and is thrilled to offer and share the joy, peace, happiness, love, calmness, and serenity that yoga brings to all that come to study and practice.
