My yoga journey began back in 2008 when my wife suggested we take a class together as a means of exercise. I was uncomfortable with the idea to say the least. I hadn’t been physically active for quite a while and the idea of “yoga” was foreign to me. The physicality of it was demanding, but what was more intense was the mental challenge. Although I was in a room full of people, I was alone with my thoughts and not comfortable with that at all. But as I continued on I came to the realization that yoga was not just a way to exercise the body, but also the mind and the soul. I began to look forward to my mat time as a way of diving into myself; taking stock of what was pressing on my mind, untying the those mental knots and releasing that which was stressful.

Throughout my yoga exploration I have found myself living on both the East Coast, West Coast, and in the Midwest; I have attended countless classes in countless studios, but it wasn’t until I found myself at my first Soulful here at EnSoul Yoga that I felt I had truly found a home. The warmth, kindness, and compassion that greeted me filled me with a confidence to push beyond my practice comfort zone, and within a year I found myself on my way to Mexico for Life and Teacher Training.

I pride myself on being as welcoming and supportive of every yogi who attends my classes, as I experienced on my first day; trying to lead by example that no matter your experience level, body type, or physical condition, yoga has something for us all.

No matter what, you must let your inner light guide you out of the darkness.
