The Essence of My Yoga Practice

Accrescent:  growing continuously, specifically growing larger after flowering

 

Open to possibility and possibility will open you

 

“I am a husband, father, musician, educator, dedicated yogi and yoga teacher who teaches alignment-based yoga.  I took my first yoga class on the verge of fatherhood in 2014 at the age of 35.  Over the years, my daily practice has been so many things for me:  an escape, an anchor, a workout, a restorer, a portal, a teacher, an ego crusher, medicine. Now I find that while I may feel different on a daily basis, my practice is an unshakable, ever-expanding constant, where as long as I continue to show up, what I offer to my practice is offered to me in return, often with dividends.   The fact that I practice and teach yoga is a reminder of the potential of possibility.”

 

MY MISSION 
My mission is to forge an atmosphere of playful possibility, where students can tap into their own potential, balance strength and flexibility, and bring awareness to the capacity of both their bodies and minds.  I aim to offer practical strategies that enhance student wellness and deepen music education through yoga, meditation and breathwork.  

 

MY CLASS
My classes are open-level, full-spectrum strong movement experiences that aim to establish a solid foundation and empower students to explore their own capacity. I offer thematic contemplation while guiding students through a myriad of yoga poses.
