My yoga journey was a path of rediscovery. From the first class I took, I knew yoga would play a large role in my life; in fact, I closed my custom window treatment business that I owned for 25 years, to become a yoga teacher. I made that decision in 2009, and began my 200 hr teacher training at Yoga Mandali with Gopi Kinnicutt as my teacher. Choosing to be a Yoga teacher was definitely the best life decision I’d made, this was to be my path of service.

Matt has been rock climbing for 34 years and yoga revealed itself as a complementary practice. Another major influence in his interest in yoga is his background in the martial arts. Matt has been studying and training in Martial Arts for more than 30 years.
