I’m a lifelong student of this practice. I’m a husband and have 2 big dogs & 2 cats. I’m a social & environmental activist, and a former research scientist in Cognitive & Quantitative Psycholinguistics (B.A., M.A., A.B.D).Yoga wakes me up to the beauty and joy of life. It helps me to stay strong, pliable, and aware so I can move more comfortably and graciously in the world. I came to yoga postures by way of pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation. While preparing for graduate school the bigger practices of yoga helped me with anxiety and concentration, and since then, so much more.
I’m trained in Moksha Level 1, Moksha Level 2 (twice), Moksha Flow, & Yin (Moksha & Yin are favourites), and have completed Traditional Yoga Studies (800hr) with Georg Feuerstein. I have much gratitude for my teachers: Ted Grand, Jessica Robertson, Eihei Peter Levitt. I teach breath-centred yoga classes that focus on “just the right amount”. The right amount of: breath-awareness, strength, flexibility, mindfulness, history, ethics and repetition. For me, the breath is the key to strength, calmness, emotional stability, and joy. I enjoy hiking in the woods and Zen practice with the Salt Spring Zen Circle.
