About Matt Nelson

The Heirloom Yoga Project

The Heirloom Yoga Project is dedicated to sharing and preserving traditional Yoga teachings while also making them accessible and meaningful to modern spiritual seekers. In addition to  Yoga instructional videos that are intended for all Yoga practitioners, from the complete beginner to instructors, this project will share recorded Kirtan sessions, blog posts and interviews that are intended to inspire ongoing spiritual inquiry and a deepening of love of Yoga.

While this endeavor will primarily explore the lineages in which I have studied - those of Krishnamacharya, a 20th century Yoga luminary, and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, a 16th century Bengali Saint renowned for teaching Bhakti Yoga, it will also touch upon related practices, including Yoga Therapy, Chi Gong, Embodied Movement, and other mindfulness-based, meditative practices.

Approach To Teaching


I offer a welcoming, mindful and adaptive approach to Yoga, rooted in traditional practices and tailored to the needs of the modern practitioner. This methodology provides students a nourishing and inspiring classroom setting that promotes physical and emotional wellness, personal discovery, and inner-growth.

Through integrated, breath-centered yoga postures, guided meditation, and relatable insights into yoga philosophy, all students are invited to explore at their own pace and with appropriate variations to meet the needs of their body and mind.

Both group and private yoga classes provide students the opportunity to discover functional movements that help to unwind patterns of tension, strengthen underutilized muscles, improve joint stability and increase range of motion. This process is further supported with dynamic breathing techniques, which in turn facilitate a more peaceful mind, creating a sense of ease and fulfillment that supports our daily lives.

Bio

I am an E-RYT 500 yoga and meditation teacher, and draw upon over 25 years 
of experience in meditative, movement-based practices to provide joyful, nourishing and accessible classes, which promote physical and emotional wellness, personal discovery, and inner-growth. I offer an adaptive approach to yoga and meditation, rooted in traditional practices and tailored to the needs of the modern practitioner.

I am grateful for all the teachers and students who have inspired me, however, a few deserve special mention here – Zhander Remete, Peter Sterios, Amy Matthews and Gary Kraftsow. In addition to passing along wisdom and knowledge, they have fostered in me a love of the process of learning and being a student.

With regards to gratitude and thanks, there are no words to describe my feelings for my guru, Swami B.V. Tripurari, who introduced me to Gaudiya Vaishnavism and has been my spiritual guide since 2009. His teachings inspire me everyday, in all aspects of my life.
