The Studio

Our teachers Bill and Kristin Banick teach throughout the Greater New Haven area in South Central Connecticut.  BigFaceLove is not a physical studio, but rather a philosophy of practice and being that we carry with us wherever we go.


Our yoga philosophy is rooted in the ancient sciences of Hatha Yoga and Tantra, which seek to bring about transformation of the self through practices which build and focus energy, and Ayurveda, which seeks to create balance in the self-using the elements as a template for understanding one's unique constitution and relationship with nature.



Our Teachers

Bill and Kristin study with a lineage of teachers who are connected to the Himalayan Institute, and include Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Rod Stryker, Rolf Sovik, Sandy Anderson, Sue Neufeld, and Kathryn Templeton.  Bill and Kristin completed their 500-hour teacher training together in 2011: "Teaching Deeper Practices: In the Lineage of Para Yoga".  They continue  their studies at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA where Bill graduated from the Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist Training in 2013. 
They co-teach a 200-hour yoga teacher training "Foundations of the Deeper Practices: A 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in the Lineage of ParaYoga".  Bill was a guest teacher in the 2012 teacher training: "Teaching the Deeper Practices: 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training".
