Phyllicia Bonanno

Phyllicia Bonanno is a certified yoga teacher and reiki practitioner based in NJ/NYC. She has been practicing yoga since she was in highschool, 2005, but truly committed herself in 2010 to the lifestyle including the full 8 limbs of yoga. She is an artist at heart and yoga has translated into a moving art and meditation for her. Phyllicia completed her yoga teacher training in 2014 through Life Power Yoga. During her yoga teacher training she fell in love with the Ashtanga practice because of the discipline in the movements, focus on the breath, and the knowledgeable assist she would get in class. She now teaches her vinyasa flow classes with an inspiration from Ashtanga. You can find Phyllicia teaching vinyasa flows, meditation, yin, and soundbaths. Phyllicia also shares the gift of sound healing through workshops with the use of alchemy crystal singing bowls. Each of her bowls are infused with different crystals that connect to the chakras and deeper self. The sound of the singing bowls vibrate through the body allowing you to achieve an inner cleanse and calm throughout your whole being.

Phyllicia is the co-founder of Sisters of Yoga; a safe space for women of color to explore yoga and mindful living, navigate self discovery and healing while having a sisterhood to support them.

She is an artist and has her BFA and MFA in fine art painting and is a certified art teacher. Full time she is a teacher of visual arts.
