Around 11 yrs ago I began practicing yoga while searching for relief from low-back pain. I fell in love with the stillness and peace I found within myself and I was inspired to learn more. I became certified in The Dynamic Yoga Method and registered with Yoga Alliance in 2015.
I began teaching classes and I noticed the lack of diversity and accessibility in most yoga studios and class offerings, especially for the LBGTQIA+ Community. I wanted to learn more about a trauma-informed approach to teaching along with creating a space that was inclusive and welcoming for everybody. I then trained with Amber Karnes of Body Positive Yoga and became a Certified Accessible Yoga teacher in 2019.
I am excited to further develop my craft by studying with Jules Mitchell MS, CMT,ERYT500, this year(2020). Her unique approach incorporates biomechanics and pain science with the modern application of yoga asana. This involves balancing the somatic aspects of yoga with current exercise science.
I opened The Bee's Knees Yoga Studio because I wanted to bring more diversity to yoga spaces and create a space that was welcoming and inclusive. I wanted to make yoga more accessible to all students, regardless of ability or background. I believe every individual is unique and teaching yoga should be a collaborative, creative process between teacher and student. When I am not at the studio, I am appreciating a quiet life at home with my wife, Angel, our son, Jackson, and 3 goofy rescue pups.
