Geroge loves yoga. He has practiced on hillsides, beaches, granite peaks, in oceans around the world, on car hoods, in garden sheds, and parking lots. George imparts clear instruction through the imagery he employs in his personal practice. His invitation, to every student, is to create a space in which practioners may accept their imminent experience and refine their inner state.
George completed the Prakasa Yoga Level 1 Teacher Training in 2010. His earliest yoga training came from the disciplines of chanting, meditation, ritual and selfless service. These spiritual practices led to the discovery and love of yoga asana practice.
