Bobby is a certified yoga instructor from Yoga to the People (YTTP). After a year of studying their quick-paced, sweaty “vinyasa” style he began to teach his first classes at YTTP studios throughout New York City. Looking for a dose of “spiritual” yoga, he picked up and moved to Sivananda Yoga Ranch in Monticello, NY. There Bobby learned the traditional Hindu, hatha-raja style as taught by Swami Vishnudevanada. Bobby volunteered in Harlem, at the Urban Yoga Foundation, where he combined elements of the: vinyasa, hatha, and Bikram styles into his classes. Besides working with adults, Bobby worked in “kids yoga” at Democracy Prep Charter School, giving instruction to middle school children ages 11-13. He has taught privately to clients at their homes, building their practice according to personal needs. Bobby hails from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, a region known for its ethnic and cultural diversity.

An excerpt from this morning, May 26, on CBS News:
“Air Force veteran Chris Eder’s two tours of duty in Iraq included some near-death experiences. When he came home, he was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), reports CBS News correspondent Chip Reid. “(To) those who know me, I am a happy, happy guy,” Eder said. “I am happy right now. There is a good chance in three minutes from now sh** is going to hit the fan and everything changes,” Eder said. PTSD afflicts about 20 percent of U.S. forces who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Symptoms include severe anxiety, depression and a constant sense of danger . . . “I do not know where I would be without my yoga and my meditation practice,” he said. He said he’d probably be a statistic; one of the estimated 22 U.S. veterans who take their own lives every day.
One challenge, he says, is that many vets — especially men — see yoga as something that doesn’t fit the warrior mold. But when a vet with PTSD gives it a try, Eder said, he’s usually hooked.”
