I first practiced yoga at a small gym in Yarmouth Maine. After a year of practice I completed the Baptiste Institutes’ level 1 program and moved to Boulder, Colorado to study the yoga tradition and teaching at Naropa University. There I studied Hatha yoga, yoga meditation, and classical Indian music. I took time off school and moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my girlfriend Emily. During that time I taught yoga full time and completed the Baptiste level 2 and level 3 programs.

 

After my year off I returned to Colorado and completed my yoga studies degree at Naropa University, including a CYT-1000 hour program. During that time I began teaching regularly at Radiance Power Yoga. While there, I assisted teacher training programs, lead workshops and teacher development.


Once I completed my degree I moved back to Maine to keep teaching yoga and to be close to family. My classes emphasize building strength, developing mobility, and practicing deep rest.
