Mark was first drawn to the physical practice of yoga as a complement to his traditional workouts and participation in other sports. After embracing the deeper aspects of a daily practice, he saw great changes and recognized how yoga can permeate and enhance all areas of life: physically, mentally and spiritually. Eager to share this gift with others, Mark completed his 200 hour teacher training at the American Yoga Academy with Claire Diab and his 500 hour training with Christian Valeriani and Lisa Brodrick Triolo of Even Flow Yoga and Ohana Rising Yoga School. Mark is committed to continually deepening his knowledge through workshops, self-study and a deep daily practice. Mark incorporates various aspects of yoga into his work as a personal trainer, nutrition coach and group fitness instructor. With his knowledge of functional anatomy, Mark creates safe, effective classes grounded on proper alignment that appropriately challenges each of his students. He is happy to see the many benefits yoga has had for his clients and his students.
