AREE KHODAI

Flywheel, Hot 8 Yoga

My classes are for everybody. When you walk into the room we are all one in that same moment. There are no labels. Everything is put aside as we get out of our heads.

GRANT MATTOS

Moksha, City Yoga, Flywheel

Grant Mattos is a graduate of the 2010 City Yoga teacher training program, where he and his wife Christina spent their honeymoon. After pursuing and achieving his goal of playing professional football in the NFL, Grant left the game in 2007 and found himself on the mat. One of the many wonderful aspects of yoga that Grant enjoys is that it allows him to break down, acknowledge, accept, and let go of the self-constructed barriers that keep him from being his true self. Through passionate energy, clear instruction, and focus on alignment, he hopes to inspire others to challenge themselves daily by incorporating what they have learned on their yoga mats and using it outside in the world.
