Hi, I'm Matthew Bowman!

He/Him

Matt Bowman is a professional dancer and 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher. Before completing his yoga teacher training (YTT) in 2017 at the Source Energy Yoga Studio in Lakewood, Ohio, Matt earned his BFA in Dance at The Ohio State University from 2011 to 2015. Matt has completed additional trainings in Restorative Yoga. As a former full-time company member with the Dancing Wheels Company for six seasons, Matt has also learned how to adapt dance, yoga, workouts, and other somatic practices to individuals with disabilities of all kinds, in keeping with Dancing Wheels’ mission of promoting physically integrated dance.

Matt teaches several styles of yoga, including vinyasa flow, slow flow, and powerful vinyasa flow, slow deep stretch, and restorative yoga. He has considerable experience teaching adaptive or accessible yoga classes from his time teaching for and directing the School of Dancing Wheels. Always seeking to further his pedagogic practice, Matt allows his dance training to inform the flow of his classes with fluid and dynamic sequencing. While knowing how to utilize and challenge the full range of an individual’s physical facility in class, Matt also understands as a teacher that a solid foundation is important to a sound practice, and so he encourages students to try new things, repeat what they don’t like, and aim for balance in all aspects of their self—yoga practice included.
