Welcome Nan Arundel!

Nan brings her bright spirit to Blooma for Yoga for You!!

About Nan:
Born smack dab in the middle of summer, Nan comes by her love of sun and heat naturally. So ten years ago, smack dab in the middle of a cold Minnesota winter, when she stumbled into a yoga class and realized she could find the sun by saluting it and heat built by her own breath, thus saving her a ticket to Mexico, a nice little crush developed. Though initially feeling quite inflexible and not sure what foot/arm/hip/head went where, she was charmed enough by the mini-nap at the end of every practice to stick with it. And then sure enough, breath by breath, pose by pose, sutra by sutra, the technology of yoga worked its magic on her. What had begun as a small crush turned into a full-blown love affair as Nan opened herself to learning about and sharing her enthusiasm for yoga. Now, having studied with master instructors Jessica Rosenberg, Jeffrey Bores, Manju Patthabi Jois and teacher training with Annie Carpenter of YogaWorks in Sydney, Australia, Nan teaches yoga in corporate settings, studios, and private sessions around town. Her vinyasa classes combine a deep awareness of anatomy, sequencing, alignment, and yogic philosophy while inspiring a playful spirit. One of her students calls her, “the Warrior of the Open Heart.” When Nan isn’t sporting yoga clothes, you can find her elbow deep in dirt designing someone’s garden, clad in an apron catering someone’s party, walking one of the lakes, or at the airport off to satiate her endless hunger for travel and experiencing the world.

Welcome Kim Bosanko!

Please join us in welcoming our newest instructor
Kim Bosanko this week at Blooma!

We are offering her class FREE this Saturday (4/4) at 8am.

Kim is well-known in the Minneapolis and CorePower yoga communities. Her packed classes at CorePower are highly respected and sought-out, so join us this Saturday to give Kim a warm Blooma welcome!

High stress level and constant travel of a corporate job left little time for healthy eating or exercise. Pledging a commitment to a healthier body and mind, Kim changed her eating habits and exercised consistently at a local gym. As her body began to change, becoming stronger and leaner, so did her attitude and goals of what she wanted in life. After significant weight loss, Kim sought a beginner Yoga class at the gym to improve flexibility. She quickly fell in love with Yoga and how it made her body feel, the calm centeredness in her mind and spirit, feeling a grounding and safety she never felt before. Kim wanted "to give back" and realized what she was meant to do in life. Kim completed Yogafit training February 2006 and graduated Corepower Teacher training July 2006 and with a happy heart left her position in the corporate world to teach yoga full-time and has enjoyed teaching each and everyday since. It is a dream that became a goal that became a reality! She has since studied under Ana Forrest, Rusty Wells, Cameron Shayne and Manju Pattabi Jois.

Kim brings a kind, gentle spirit and a smile wherever she goes, always willing to help anyone with a genuine love for all.
