Bo Russell, Studio Owner


Bo first came to yoga seeking relief from back, shoulder and elbow pain as a result of many years of rigorous practice and performance as a professional drummer. Being a general fitness enthusiast and life long surfer and skater, the yoga thing kept on popping up everywhere he found himself -touring, traveling, surfing and exploring. Soon he was maintaining a consistent practice. Being a guy who also likes Crossfit WODs (he received his Crossfit Level 1 Coaching Certification) and calisthenics, yoga became the common thread that he found kept his body and mind sound. He realized early on that this yoga asana was something that prepared him for just about anything.  His dedication to yoga drove Bo to complete a 200 hr RYT certification with Renee Leblanc and YogaWorks. 

He believes that yoga is amazing because it is accessible to all and that there are so many reasons that drive people to practice. Whether it is because you are an athlete looking to get limber, stressed out at work and need to create some mental quietude or need to able-bodied enough to keep up with your active kids, there is something in yoga for everyone. It is in this spirit that he and his wife, Lisa, founded Yoga Nova.
