What is Chromatic Yoga?
Created by Matt Giordano, Chromatic Yoga is a systematic approach to teaching that provides a highly intentional and well structured experience for students to cultivate awareness of their body and mind. Authenticity is our highest core value for the sake of cultivating a supportive and empowered community.
Chromatic Teachers provide you with a step by step path toward a peak postures and/or philisophical teaching. To set you up with success Chromatic class’s include either a physical or thematic “through-line” which provides you with the highest level of learning and integration.
Where Can I practice?
Chromatic Teachers are located throughout the world. You can find one in The U.S, Europe, and Asia.
Chromatic Focus of the month
Each month Chromatic Teachers and students alike focus on one muscle group or action and get creative with our exploration of it. This serves to keep us all on track with embodying the chromatic pillar “Practice” This month our focus is the Abductors of the hip. See the video below to learn more about abduction, the muscles that create it and how to get it in your body!
The heart is our mental, and emotional focus for the month. This month we are focusing on letting go of what no longer serves our well being. The question is how do we let go of what we don’t want. You must refocus your attention on what you do want so you have something to direct your mind toward. Your thoughts and emotions will be drawn toward your current pattern. First, practice yoga and meditation to shake up your patterns and strengthen your attention on your breath and the present moment. Next take time to contemplate, journal, and talk about what you want to create for yourself. When you strengthen your minds attention on the now, and on what you want, every cell of your being will start to be pulled toward it and letting go will be natural.

Gluteus Maximus In the practice of yoga, I often hear well meaning teachers use the cue “relax the butt” positions that require hip extension, like backbends. While I get the intention is to decrease the risk of lumbar spine compression in back bends, my question is,...

Chromatic 1 was an incredibly valuable, informative, life changing experience for me as a relatively new teacher. I had the privilege of taking two classes a day from Matt, breaking them down after to better understand the anatomical alignment, the elements of voice and the options for incorporating these methods into my sequences The best feeling as a teacher is to guide students to a place they haven’t been before so THEY own the journey and the result. This experience happens in almost every class I take with Matt and I know I am not alone.In addition, I met amazing teachers, with different styles, from all over the world which are now a part of the same global community and I truly feel the love and support they bring. The warmth and generosity of Matt welcoming us into his home and farm made it extra special. The circle continues to grow and I am so grateful to be a part of it.. Can’t wait for Chromatic 2!!
Chromatic Level 1 brought together the most incredible community of yoga teachers from all over the world. Learning from each other with this collective goal of deepening our yoga practice felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity. I began the training with a very basic understanding of anatomy and left it with a much deeper knowledge of muscle actions and joint relationships. The way I sequence my classes is now much more purposeful and my students immediately noticed a difference upon my return from training. The training was very well-rounded to include time to practice, teach, learn, meditate, and connect with each other. Matt makes you feel part of the chromatic community right away and will make sure you feel supported throughout the training. Can’t wait for Level 2!
