I started learning and studying Hatha Yoga and Pranayama well over 20 years ago. My first class was at the Health and Vitality Institute in NW Houston with Hanif Akima. I wanted to learn everything I could as a young adult in the era of flip phones and printed driving directions. I tried different styles and trends, but always came back to mindful meditation and asana practice. Over the past 20 years I have lived a full life; I pursued higher education, had a career, competed in martial arts, travelled, gained weight, made a family, pursued even higher education, and loved so many pets. The constant through it all was my faith and yoga. My purpose is to teach you well and encourage you to go find stillness and peace on your own. Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts, if we can keep them open to God, will find their own intuitive way.” -Ram Dass
