About Troy Fontana
Troy Fontana is our practitioner teacher and program coordinator. He has an MBA and two decades of experience as a teacher, facilitator, and coach. With over 10,000 hours of teaching and healing in his mastermind group, he's also taught at the college level and at many events. He is respected as a business leader in the holistic health community, and brings in professional master teachers, depending on student areas of interest.
His early years as a practitioner were filled with highs and lows, which inevitably led to his own healing journey. He was led to work with shamanic healers and "teaching" plants, like Ayahuasca and Huachuma (San Pedro). These experiences opened him up to the beauty of going inward to heal our greatest wounds and taught him how to release the trauma that gets stored in our bodies.
He discovered the powers associated with breathwork early in his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey. He learned how a relationship with the breath can influence our emotional states and even bring us to greater consciousness. Now he teaches the Bodhi Method, an emotional and somatic healing modality using breath. He offers highly effective breathing, NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), Polarity Therapy Techniques, and Hands-On Tapping and Somatic Techniques.
