Practical, grounded, calming.

Edward’s Teaching Style is practical, precise, and challenging. He understands (from his own experience!) that traditional yoga classes can be intimidating and overwhelming to new students, and that the spiritual side of the practice can be a barrier to entry to many. As such, his classes are grounded purely in the physical and meditative aspects of yoga – taught in a pragmatic, science informed manner.
His yoga journey started in 2007 with an on-and-off practice until 2011, where he suffered a severe shoulder and spine injury in the US Army. These injuries propelled Edward back into yoga where he began an intensive practice and self-study in Bikram, hatha hot flow, yoga nidra, yin yoga, Zen meditation, modern mobility work, and a deep dive into the fundamentals of movement. His yoga practice and mobility work allowed him to recover from his injuries and get back into physical exercise and hobbies such as hiking, mountain biking, and climbing.
Edward is inspired to help others get into yoga and mobility work to help them overcome physical limitations, and mental anxiety. His classes put you in control of your practice, and while he may encourage you to remain at your limit, the student is ultimately the one that will determine how challenging the class is.
His joy is seeing the smile and shock on people’s faces when they can move, pain-free, into poses they never thought possible.
