To get good at anything you have to practice. How you do that on the inside is certainly your choice, but you must do it to find lasting inner peace and happiness. - Joe Somodi
Joe’s mission is to help people gain hyper-clear insight into their lives. Over the past decade, he has traveled across the United States teaching in a wide variety of settings, giving lectures and offering practices to help people become clear and steady, radiating confidence and embodying happiness. His teachings bridge the time-tested wisdom of Hatha Tantra Yoga and the modern world.
Joe holds multiple certifications in the health and wellness industry. He is a registered and certified yoga teacher with over a thousand hours of practical teaching, enlightening and helping thousands of individuals. He is one of the few ParaYoga Certified teachers in the country qualified to teach Hatha Tantra Yoga. He is also a certified Life Coach and a level 2 Reiki Master and holds a 200-hour certification from Sonic Yoga in New York City. Aside from teaching, he also regularly officiates weddings.
Joe received his bachelor’s degree (cum laud) from Binghamton University and for twelve years, owned and ran a successful video production company in NYC. He believes looking at the world through the lens of a camera and from his editing suite gave him the insight and desire to help people see more clearly in their own lives.
When Joe isn’t teaching, he can be found on a bike or on a long hike, challenging himself to reach new heights. But he equally enjoys lazy days with his 5 lb. Chihuahua, Samson, and his husband of 16 years, Kurt.
"Joe obviously practices what he preaches. He has been my rock ever since our first meeting and helped me through very tumultuous times in my life, always offering the wisdom and support I needed to figure things out on my own and help myself become more resilient. Not by trying to 'fix' things. Exactly what a good teacher should do."
