Yoga has empowered me physically and personally. Thru the practice of yoga I have been able to overcome physical challenges in my life. I joined my wife Jean in sharing a passion for yoga and community at Jiva Yoga Center. I have been practicing on my surfboard since 1986 and began to practice on my mat in 2009. I have successfully completed a 200 hour teacher training, as well as 70 hour advanced teacher training program with Mark White of Mbody Yoga in Jacksonville FL. and a 5 day (100 hr) LIVE. LOVE. TEACH teacher training with Stacy Dockins, Phillip Urso and Deborah Williamson which I am grateful to all of them. Also with much Gratitude, I also want to thank Vicki Rickard and Jean Rioux for their countless hours and passion during this journey in the 300 hour program this year at Jiva Yoga Center, 2014. As my new male mentors, Michael Johnson and Michael Stone, Thank You for inspiring me on the path that I have chosen. I teach a challenging slow mindful practice focus on breath, length of breath, powerful transitions and encouraging action in your body. I invite you to come and create your fullest expression of who YOU are. When I am not on my mat you can find me on a paddleboard or teaching SUP Yoga.
