Cody Reece, MSN, BSN, RN, RYT, C-IAYT, Pn has been a lifelong student of yoga. After completing his BSN and MSN and currently finishing his MBA in Finance, he felt that something was missing. Not anything tangible, but something inside of him was not complete. Cody had practiced yoga on and off for many years throughout his teenage years and has read almost every book on yoga philosophy available. During his graduate school
studies, he came back to yoga and this is what allowed him to feel “alive” again. After practicing yoga as a student at one of Atlanta’s top yoga studios, he went onto his teacher training. In his rigorous vinyasa based teacher training Cody worked with and learned from Atlanta’s top instructors, Becky Nickerson 500 E-RYT, Sharon Caplan, Jenny Holding, Erin Rogers, & Jennifer Smith. After completing his vinyasa based teacher training he then went onto learn from Alanna Kaivalya, Ph.D, 500 E-RYT, Elizabeth Rowan 500 E-RYT, & Andrew Hoffman 500 E-RYT in the Kaivalya Yoga Method (TKYM). TKYM is a style in both Ashtanga and Jivamukti yoga lineages that emphasizes intelligent sequencing, precise hands-on adjustments, yoga philosophy, humor and heart. Cody then went onto his 500 hour teacher training based in yoga therapy & Iyengar. After realizing the need for therapy based yoga, he decided his 600 hour training (400 contact and 200 mentorship hours) would best be suited in advance professional yoga therapy. As of this writing, Cody is only 1 out of 4 certified yoga therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT) in the Atlanta area. Currently, yoga is seen by many people as a form of exercise in the Western world. Cody wants to change that and focus on the therapy side of yoga and provide meaningful yoga sessions to his clients. Incorporating yoga into today’s modern world can seem like a daunting task and Cody has developed methods to assist his client’s in awakening their true inner-self. Yoga was originally taught to one student at a time and sessions were focused around that student’s particular needs and goals.
