Owner & Director of Rainbow Body Yoga
E-RYT 500, B.A. Yoga
Cleo first started praticing yoga at the age of 16 at an instructors house nestled in the magical woods of upstate 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 the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. A few years later, Cleo attended Naropa University where she received her 1000hr yoga teacher training and B.A. in Yoga. The program at Naropa enabled her to dive deeply into ancient yogic texts, the practice of asana, the study of Sanskrit, and yoga philosophy. Cleo has gratefully 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. Cleo has been teaching yoga for over 14 years. She is a Reiki Master and has been a Quantum Energy Healing Practitioner for the past 11 years. She is currently pursuing her M.A. in Yogic Studies and Sanskrit at Naropa University.
