Cleo Post, Owner & Director Rainbow Body Yoga, E-RYT 500, B.A. Yoga
Cleo has been teaching yoga for 11 years and practicing yoga for 13 years, 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 a couple years later to Naropa University where she received her 1000hr yoga teacher training and B.A. in Yoga in December 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 opened 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 practice.
Growing up in Upstate New York, nature has always been a huge part of Cleo's connection with herself and the world. This love of the plant world brought her to study herbalism and ultimately heal herself.
Cleo has studied Herbalism for the past 8 years. She has studied with renowned herbal teachers, Rosemary Gladstar, Brigitte Mars, and Michael Tierra. Her love of plants brought her to study and learn plant about consciousness & communication.
Cleo has been practicing Energy Healing, in a form called Quantum Level Soul Healing. A blend of shamanic healing, quantum healing, and other healing modalities to access one's full soul healing. www.quantumlevelsoulhealing.com
"My 200 hr YTT with Cleo was the best decision I've made in my 11+ year history as a fitness instructor and lover of yoga. The immersive training prepared me to teach yoga that is true to form and tradition, but also taught me how to embrace my own unique style of teaching. Since my training, I've led so many successful yoga classes, yoga combo classes, special workshops, and guided meditations. Cleo's training gave me the confidence to not only teach yoga, but also to confidently get out into the world and share my gifts. Her whole self approach really cracked me wide open and allowed me to discover interests in so many healing modalities in addition to yoga, and I am so grateful to have had such a thorough training that went so far beyond the asana practice of yoga and deep into the philosophy as well. In all honesty, she enlightened me." - Allison
"Since the yoga retreat my life has changed so much for the better. I feel so empowered and inspired to spread knowledge and wisdom to others. Getting certified in yoga has improved my life and helped me to lead a happy, healthy life, loving what I do and guiding others on their own path to self love and healing." - Carmela
"YTT with Rainbow Body Yoga was truly a life transforming experience. I cannot recommend this program enough. I learned all that I sought after and I discovered things about myself I didn't even know I needed to find." - Kristina
“My gut told me to participate in Cleo’s immersive YTT retreat and I am so very glad I listened. I felt supported and safe to be my self from the moment I arrived on the farm. I appreciated being able to tune in to the natural world while learning, as most other trainings take place indoors. I also enjoyed the lessons on other healing modalities (e.g., tarot, herbalism, and ayurveda) that Cleo included in our syllabus. This illustrated the idea that while yoga is a powerful practice, it is even more beneficial when a part of a multifaceted holisitic healing routine. Cleo’s training empowered me to embrace my gifts, find/use my voice, and honor the calling I feel to help others heal and I am forever grateful for that. But most of all, I am grateful for the connections I made as I keep in touch with many of the beautiful beings I met and they continue to inspire me well beyond the training!” - Laura
"The Rainbow Body two week yoga teacher training program was an immersive and enlightening experience. The program focused on the balance of body, mind, and spirit. Cleo is an experienced, knowledgeable, and exemplary teacher. Her calm energy and patient approach allow the student to feel comfortable with the learning process. I was able to gain the skills I wanted to acquire and apply them effectively in my life and my work." - Conny
