YOGA TO ME:

Yoga is a relationship between mind, body and breath.  Yoga is freedom and release.  I am here to help others enjoy this so they can feel the same things that I feel as I keep learning and understanding the practice.

WHO DO I WANT TO TEACH:  

Everyone who is willing to push themselves a bit; to go a little past their comfort zone; people that are willing to listen to me and most importantly their own bodies.

WHO AM I:  

I am a person who for the longest time thought yoga was for women only.  I was in the gym every day.  I ran every day, but I needed more.  I was out with my wife and a friend (Julia Ruocco) asked us to come to class.  We showed up the next day, loved it and I’ve been taking class ever since.  I loved it so much that I wanted be a teacher.  Now I am and I can’t get enough.
