DIRECTOR AND PRINCIPAL TEACHER
Throughout the last twenty years, Craig Villani has guided thousands of yoga instructors to achieve professional certification in the Original 26&2. He served for nearly a decade as International Director of Education and Teacher Training for the Bikram Yoga College of India, resigning from his position in 2008.
Craig leads events throughout the world, focusing on hatha and raja yoga, breath work, meditation, mind training, personal transformation, consciousness, connection, and integrative health. He has been mentoring teachers in transformational leadership and yoga therapy since 1999.
A big fan of Maui sunsets and lazy Sundays, he's pretty confident that Self-realization rests in a shady hammock on a warm beach with an old guitar, a cool drink, and a good friend. He sees the practice of yoga as an invaluable tool to expand our awareness and elevate the adventure of being alive.
Honoring purpose, compassion, courage, and connection, Craig and the RYA faculty intend to provide a safe and welcoming space for our community to grow, share, and realize a better future together.
