Manny is a yoga teacher, movement specialist, and a founder/owner of The Collective Yoga Co-op in Chicago, IL. Manny’s teaching style is technical and precise; his goal is always for you to understand what’s going on in the body before taking shapes or exercises deeper. Manny’s teaching path is dedicated to accessibility and inclusion. His studio, The Collective Yoga Co-op, is dedicated to centering and uplifting LGBTQ+ teachers and teachers of color, and partners quarterly with local grassroots organizations to support various causes in Chicago. When not teaching yoga, you can catch Manny at the dog beach with his pup Kaia, eating ice cream on a patio, or planning his next travel adventure.

Interested in starting a yoga practice, or honing a particular skill in your current practice, or even a non-physical focus like yoga to de-stress from work? Manny can help with personal, specialized, and technical private lessons.
Our first session will be spent talking about your goals, physical and medical history, and a diagnostic practice where Manny will take note of things like imbalances and opportunities for growth. We’ll then design a plan of action to work towards your goals over several sessions together, and have consistent check-ins to monitor progress.
