Bobby Hoyt
Vinyasa Yoga

It’s truly bittersweet to announce that September will be my final month of regular classes on the Big Island for awhile. Having the opportunity to share my passion for the past 10+ years with an amazing and dedicated community of yogis has been the best education as a teacher and am truly grateful for the experience. 

Some of you may or may not know that I was fortunate enough to attend a boarding school in Connecticut during high school. Suffield Academy helped build the foundation of who I am today. They have also just about completed work on the Balance Barn, a place for yoga and meditation for students and faculty.In the beginning of October, I will be relocating to Suffield to work with Hillary Cahn to create a yoga program for the school. The Balance Barn, at first, will offer classes on asana, pranayama and meditation. The long range goal is to build a program that incorporates the larger picture of Yoga throughout campus life. 

It will be difficult to leave my yoga and North Kohala community for this time, however I know the aloha and love will be felt all the way in Connecticut. (and hopefully some warmth too!!!)  The opportunity to share the tools, that have saved my life, with high school students and faculty feels like the right thing to do at this time in my life. Of course, seeing friends and family for whom it’s been too long will help fill the hole.Mahalo from my heart

Bobby Hoyt (E-RYT 200) has spent the past 12 years teaching classes in North Kohala and Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii; in Manchester Center and Peru, Vt.; in San Francisco; at the Burning Man event on the Black Rock Desert of Nevada; Florence, Italy and at the Wanderlust Festivals on Oahu and at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.
Originally trained in Shivanada, Bobby then was certified with more than 300 hours training in Asthanga Vinyasa with Larry Schulze from It’s Yoga in San Francisco.

Continuing to expand his horizons, Bobby studied Iyengar extensively with Leslie Howard, and he has taken multiple workshops and retreats; including with Kula Leaders and Universal yoga. Bobby's class incorporates all that he studies and practices, which equals a class that allows the practitioner to move with one's breath while quieting the mind and strengthening the body. His use of music and light-hearted humor adds to a unique practice soaked in many traditions.
The past ten years, his biggest influence has been Andrey Lappa, creator of Universal Yoga. With this influence, Bobby’s class incorporates a 360 degree mandala style practice which maximizes the complete movement of the major joints in the body.
Bobby's vinyasa class is one that moves you beyond your normal asana practice. Moving with your breathe and in 360 degrees, his class maximizes the fullest movement of the breath with your body. Listen to your breath and the asana will come. Click on the MyClasses link above for a further explanation of Bobby's class.
