Bryson Newell graduated from the University of Dayton with a degree in education. He taught for several years in Istanbul, Turkey before traveling to India and Nepal to further his studies in Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation. While living abroad, he was introduced to Tibetan Buddhism. Immediately impressed with the depth of this tradition he began intensive study. He completed the retreats for the Tibetan Buddhist practices of the Drikung Kagyu Ngondro, The Five Fold Path of Mahamudra, & Six Yogas of Naropa.

He began studying Okinawan martial arts as a child and then as an adult he was introduced to the Taoist Neigong practices focusing on Qigong and Taijiquan. As he became increasingly interested in embodiment he discovered the Alexander Technique while on retreat. After taking lessons for several years he was invited onto the teacher training course where he was able to further develop the technique. He is a longterm student of the Feldenkrais Method and a certified Hanna Somatics teacher.

His teachings focus on the inner principles inherent in these systems. He created Somatic Restructuring as a clear method for practitioners to develop the embodied state. His Somatic Restructuring lessons are internal, embodied somatic education classes that teach people how to find freedom through conscious internal movement principles.
