Larry Kite Surfing

Yoga discovered Larry when he was training for marathons. In order to keep his body well despite an intense weekly running regimen, he intuitively combined stretching with breath.  While living in NYC, he attended his first yoga class and realized he had been doing yoga all along.

Between 2007-2011, Larry completed over 1100 hours certification as a certified yoga teacher trainer through the School Yoga Institute.  He considers himself fortunate to have studied extensively under Vinnie Marino, Bryan Kest, Annie Carpenter, Steve Ilg, Mark Blanchard and Kathryn Budig.

Larry believes yoga is a powerful way to stay connected.  Through a devotional practice, bhakti, one can cultivate deeper spiritual, physical, and emotional connections with the self as well as others.    “Pleasure is the body, Happiness is in the mind, Joy is in the spirit.”  Larry now keeps his calendar full leading workshops and classes at many of Houston’s premieres studios and leads 200 & 300 hour advanced studies as well as yoga teacher trainings.

When not running, mountain biking, surfing, or traveling, he may be found learning new ways to optimize his life, and searching for ‘hole in the wall’ eats.

Why Bodhin?

In Sanskrit, bodhi means the awakening experience, expressing the notion of awakening from a dream and of being aware and knowing. It is more accurate to think of bodhi as spiritual “awake-ness” or awakening, rather than enlightenment.

Bodhin Yoga Services evolved from Larry’s desire to combine ancient wisdom with modern success in his own life.  He was inspired to live more authentically, to be radically honest with himself and to take accountability for the outcome of his life. He began to focus on happiness and balance, and make the shifts he needed to acquire them.  Today, Larry continues to inspire others to create balance in their lives.

Blending yoga and life philosophies, adventure and travel, Larry crafts unique adventures for independent travelers, couples, and yoga-inspired groups and trainings.  Awakenings and balance are perfectly juxtaposed as clients are pampered with creature comforts while immersed in various activities that fuse education and adventure.

Bodhin Yoga Services offers private yoga sessions, workshops, retreats, and yoga teacher trainings hosted at unique accommodations from Brazil to Indonesia.

Contact Larry or connect with him on Facebook for more information or testimonials.  Additionally, to hear Larry discuss ‘the yoga of you’ listen in on a recent Internet Talk Radio interview hosted by Anna Kaupplia.
