Vincent Bolletta has spent his yoga journey exploring the many styles of yoga, searching for the essence of the yoga practice and how it applies to the functional lives of everyday practitioners.
Vincent has been teaching and practicing yoga since 1990 and has been involved with the health and wellness industry even longer. This has lead him to becoming New Zealand’s foremost yoga instructor and teacher trainer with a wealth of knowledge in biomechanics, yoga therapy, movement therapy and postural analysis.
Vincent encompasses in his teaching private sessions, general classes and yoga retreats. He has also worked along side with some of New Zealand’s top athletes. He spent 16 years as a presenter, educator and yoga coach for Les Mills.
With 26 years teaching and practice experience Vincent now regularly travels internationally to Europe, USA, and Asia to teach and deliver the “Art of Yoga”.
He is a co-founder of the Centre for Contemporary Yoga Studies, a place of yoga teacher training based in Auckland, New Zealand where 200 and 500 hours Yoga Teacher Training programmes are delivered.
Vincent is also the founder of hañsa Yoga a unique style that integrates eastern and western thought and methodologies to the practice of yoga. hañsa Yoga has developed a 200 hours and 500 hours yoga therapy training programme that supports a process of healing and awakening through principles of human fundamental movement patterns. Using this as the basis to gain greater insight to individual function as well as understanding ones physical, mental and energetic needs. hañsa Yoga is also about exploring the subtle aspects of the breath to discover the artistry of internal flow and form.
Vincent has also created hañsa flow an intensive that teaches how to design and sequence a yoga practice or class that is creative, imaginative and therapeutic. Through this practice we will unravel and engage our unique stories in a way to evoke a postural evolution that will only enhance skill and poise on all levels.
2017 will see Vincent returning back to China to offer hañsa yoga therapy teacher training and flow intensives after a successful 2016 teaching and coaching circuit. 2017 will see in China for the first time a one year mentoring programme for both teachers and students. In this programme Vincent will encourage each student to progress their practice by personally guiding them through a specific sequence that caters to their needs.
Vincent has a bent for creativity in all avenues of living with a particular passion for photography. While developing his own photographic skills he has also worked collaboratively with photographer Marc Mateo on a series of yoga photographs which have been exhibited in New Zealand and the USA and have also been published by Yoga Journal Russia and China.
