An avid mountain runner and Ambassador for La Sportiva, Josh resonates the desire to draw awareness to the potential within. Through the many practices of yoga, he draws from his own experiences to help bring the mind, body, and spirit into a more unified state. His classes are experiential, heart centering flows that focus on each practitioners individual anatomical and energetic alignment.
Josh has been a student of multiple styles of Yoga for and received his RYT certification from Yandara Yoga Institute in Todos Santos, Mexico. Humble gratitude to my teachers Shane Perkins, Kate Moll, Sarasvati Rose, Marty Cross, Connee Pike, the Asana crew, my wife and two daughters, and everyone I meet in this beautiful life. We are all teachers to each other.

I first found yoga in 2006 through my earlier teachings in Buddhism, but never took it seriously as my interests were more invested in a hobby of long-boarding through town. I reintroduced myself to yoga during my pregnancy in 2011 and have been teaching since early 2016.
Although my certification is with power yoga, i adore the practice of vinyasa with creative freestyle, and integrating goals of healing the physical and emotional bodies through the practice of yoga, pranayama, meditation and other ayurvedic practices.
