If you had told me five years ago I’d one day be a yoga teacher, I would have laughed in your face and lit another cigarette. My first yoga class was during a time in my life when I was 50 pounds overweight and shedding many bad habits. I am a lifetime athlete, but we all lose our way.

“Yoga helped me kickstart healthy lifestyle changes that have stuck with me to this day.”

Yoga helped me kickstart healthy lifestyle changes that have stuck with me to this day. 50 pounds, a 3rd knee surgery, and a 200-hour training later, here I am. I believe that yoga is for everybody, and my classes reflect that. As a triathlete and washed up lacrosse player, I understand and emphasize the value of recovery, mobility, and especially alignment.
