Vito Politano

Vito teaches yoga, trains teachers, provides Thai yoga bodywork, practices Metta meditation, and studies energy healing; he is grateful, and inspired to share these powerful practices. His strong desire to share the healing benefits of practice inspired him to combat a debilitating fear of public speaking, and start teaching in 2007. He teaches mindful movement with a focus on breath, and alignment.  He also offers classes, and workshops that incorporate yoga wall/ropes, and myofascial release using massage balls. His care, and attention to safety, and therapeutics enable students to open body, heart, and mind in a deep, and sustainable way.  Strongly committed to self-development, Vito informs his practice through the continued, and regular study, and training in yoga, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, and bodywork. His comprehensive training goes far beyond his 500 Hour with Natasha Rizopoulos (YogaWorks) and Barbara Benagh (Down Under Yoga), 200 Hour with Natasha Rizopoulos through YogaWorks, and assisting of David Magone in the Pranavayu method. In 2012, Vito was named lululemon Ambassador for the Boston Prudential store. Since his first training with Shai Plonski through the Lotus Palm School in 2010, Vito has been a regular practitioner of Thai Bodywork. Additionally, he studied craniosacral therapy with Kate Peck, and completed Reiki 1 and 2 with Susan Coffey. Having taught and mentored students in other yoga teacher trainings, he is now excited to continue offering his own yoga teacher training in partnership with well-respected teacher, and friend Larisa Forman through the Yoga Loft of Marblehead.

FAQ

what inspired you to teach yoga?

The drive to face a fear of not being good enough in order to share this healing practice. Opening others to the depths of their strength, tenderness, and connection.

Who are your most influential teachers?

Many! Natasha Rizopoulos, Judith Hanson Lasater, Thai Massage teacher Shai Plonski, and my niece/goddaughter Alicia who died of brain cancer @ 4.5 years old

How would you describe your style?

Challenging, Cheerleading, Caring, and Casual…no pretense. I encourage students to mindfully challenge their comfort, and experience how much stronger, and capable they are than they think. With continued study of anatomy, and kinesiology, I skillfully modify practice to meet diverse needs, and empower students with greater self-awareness.

Why do you feel retreats are transformational?

A focused time of self-care.  Through mindful travel, the opportunity to deepen connection to self, and community, and strengthen practice, and grow.

What is your favorite pose to teach?

Students may say Utkatasana.  It is actually balancing poses, whether on hands and/or feet. I enjoy the opportunity to empower students to go beyond their self-limiting beliefs.

Where are your favorite places to travel?

Italy is always a favorite given my parents are from there, and the opportunity to visit family. I am also very excited to explore places I have not been.
