My commitment to wellness began in 2006, shortly after turning 40 years old. I found that I have a natural desire to learn how to keep my body healthy & saw notable results with adherence to a plan. I also noticed that a few of my coworkers were just as committed as I did not achieve the same results.
After I achieved my 200 RYT Alignment Yoga certification in 2016, I decided to concentrate my practice on helping individuals learn what worked for their physical bodies, minds, and souls. Knowing that a significant portion of a person's health is emotional & spiritual, I sought Reiki & Mindfulness Meditation certifications. In 2019, I went to the source of holistic health & studied in Rishikesh, India. At the Vedansha Institute of Vedic Science and Alternative Medicine, I earned a 300 RYT certification in Yoga Therapy. It was there that I learned the answer to "Why could two people eat & exercise in the same way and each has two different results?". Armed with the answer, I now seek to share how to Eat Well, Sleep Well, Think Well, and Age Well!
Note: "RYT" = Registered Yoga Training by Yoga Alliance. The governing agency for "yoga trainers in the USA." In total, I have received over 750 hours of training from Registered Yoga Trainers.
Yoga has been my path to discovering my true authentic self. I have had many adventures and made several choices that have had negative consequences for myself and my family. Please read my blog "The Pilot Yogi" for my thoughts on parenting, traveling and holistic health. It is just one point of view but if you enjoy the raw truth it is a great read.
