We all do yoga all our lives but I think for my bio something different is wanted. In my mid to late teens I practiced Bajiquan and Taijiquan, even yoga once or twice a month. Then needed a change. I spent four years in Western North Carolina at the John C. Campbell Folk School. There I got more into yoga with the help of friends. Work started soon after and on my off time I would venture into a yoga studio. It was mostly Vinyasa Yoga with a Yin class once in a while. I still love Yin or any restorative yoga. I moved to Germany in 2006 to be close to my lady and there I started Ashtanga at a great studio in Stuttgart called Yoga Mitte. I have been doing Ashtanga since. When I was home in Florida I would go to Surya Yoga, another Ashtanga school(may have changed). I now live in Asheville, NC and help Ashtanga set roots here. I have taken the Asheville Community Yoga's 21 Day Intensive Yoga Teacher Training program and am now a RYT 200 hour certified yoga teacher — what ever that means. Also through the years of Ashtanga practice I have found myself in workshops with David Swenson, David Williams, and other Ashtanga practitioners. Having had over 250 hours of training from Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann I consider them my teachers. I continue to do Ashtanga everyday, with one day off a week from asana and no asana on New and Full Moons. Whoo that was a lot about myself.
