Bo Srey views teaching yoga as service, drawing on many years as a student in the traditional master-disciple relationship to enrich his alignment-based hatha yoga classes—classes informed primarily by Iyengar and Anusara yoga. Bo is a formerly Certified Anusara teacher who has chosen to pursue his own path while still sharing Anusara’s wonderful alignment principles.
Bo teaches from a place of deep personal inquiry and childlike wonder, drawing from over 18 years as a seeker and internationally recognized teacher. Bo’s deepest wish is that students connect with and expand the bliss of the Middle, the place of Pure Awareness, into their lives.
Originally from New York, Bo has been on staff in major studios in San Francisco, Singapore, and Thailand. Bo and his wife Shirley offer workshops, immersions, and teacher trainings internationally.
Bo’s classes also reflect a life-long love of martial arts and the wisdom of the Taoists. Students enjoy the deeply welcoming, playfully intelligent, and dynamically still nature of his teaching.
Shirley shares her wisdom and practice with students, through assisting in teaching events and managing Spandananda. For more about Bo and Shirley, please visit them at www.spandananda.com
