I was a typical stressed-out guy who couldn’t touch my toes. I tried to do and be everything to everyone, many times at the expense of myself. This resulted in an unhealthy lifestyle and high blood pressure. I also developed plantar fasciitis and other related problems due to a snowboarding accident which left me with a broken pelvis.
I found hot yoga in 2010 at age 41 and was hooked immediately. A consistent hot yoga practice along with healthier eating and positive attitude resulted in shedding over 55 + pounds in three years. Hot yoga helped me better manage my mind, ego, and how I handled everyday people and situations. I completed a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Certification and began teaching. I've taught over 1,000 hours and led several foundations workshops. I studied business in college and graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in business administration.
My daughter and son are two of my favorite yoga students and often help put together playlists for my classes. They always encourage me and inspire me to take my yoga teaching and fatherhood to the next level.
