As a Katonah Yoga teacher and Vipassana meditator, Brian Nygard is compelled to teach Yoga as way to live life more fully, simply and sensibly. With a formal education from the New England Conservatory of Music, and through years of study beside his foremost mentors Nevine Michaan and Abbie Galvin, Brian’s lessons draw from a wide vocabulary of music, yoga, philosophy, and embodied work.
In practice, Brian seeks to offer his students a playful forum to identify nature’s implicit pattern by understanding forms for their function and employing metaphor to enhance the imaginations experience of the relationships inherent in every circumstance. A senior faculty member at many of New York City’s most established yoga schools, Brian has trained and mentored hundreds of teachers over the last decade. He has been a guest teacher at the United Nations, and regularly headlines workshops, retreats, festivals, and teacher training programs, both in the U.S. and internationally. He lives in New York City.
