Teachers & Therapists

Ben Vincent

Ben’s search for truth began long before being exposed to yoga, but yoga felt like com­ing home…

His stud­ies include var­i­ous tra­di­tions of yoga, med­i­ta­tion, mys­ti­cism, music, phi­los­o­phy, con­flict res­o­lu­tion and sus­tain­able farm­ing. He con­tin­ues to study with Richard Free­man, Rod Stryker, William Prot­tengeier, and Aadil Palkhivala, and have also stud­ied with the mae­stro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. Through these rela­tion­ships, he has learned that the art of teach­ing is to inspire a love of the prac­tice, for great teach­ers are always students.

Ben’s teach­ing is a reflec­tion of his prac­tice – inte­grat­ing the breath & ener­getic aware­ness of Ash­tanga Vinyasa & pranayama, the bod­ily align­ment of Iyen­gar yoga, and the mind­ful­ness and sub­tle aware­ness of var­i­ous med­i­ta­tive and philo­soph­i­cal tra­di­tions — to real­ize inte­gral well-being. Self-inquiry through yoga, med­i­ta­tion and music as liv­ing arts, has deep­ened the expe­ri­ence of what it is to be human and divine. He seeks to embody these real­i­ties through the sim­ple truths of love, com­pas­sion, and non-attachment.

To share the wis­dom of yoga as a teacher, is both a bless­ing and great respon­si­bil­ity, as there is no greater ser­vice than the work of love.
