RYT, Ashtanga Teacher
Ashtanga Primary - Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30-8 pm
Steve first began practicing yoga in 2000 and received his 200 hour teacher training in 2012. During teacher training he was introduced to the practice of Ashtanga. At that time he began his journey to learn this practice. His teacher and source of guidance is Andrew Eppler at the Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman, Oklahoma. Steve has also studied many times with David Swenson at various locations around the country. His other teachers include David Williams and Sri BNS Iyengar with whom in 2013 he had the opportunity to study asana, mudra, pranayama and philosophy. Steve maintains a daily ashtanga practice, studies Thai massage and Ayurveda and believes yoga is “Not Supposed to Hurt” and that yoga should be thought of as a part of your life and not as an extra activity. Steve’s focus as a teacher is to assist students in building a personal practice that is therapeutic and centered around the healing potential that yoga has to
offer. His favorite quote is “Be Like Water” and incorporates this thought into his daily practice and life.
