Brad is a Portland Maine native and former multiple sport athlete. While working towards his kinesiology degree and navigating through the messy confusion of life he took his first hot yoga class. It was like the light just turned on and that peace that seemed so out of reach had been there all along. The journey is just beginning for Brad, he completed his 200 hour Power + Vinyasa training in 2018 at Hot 8 yoga in Pasadena, California and plans to continue towards his 500 hr in the near future. "It has been the greatest gift in life finding myself in the service of others" Brad truly believes that the practice will always meet you exactly where you are in the present moment. Brad's vinyasa style is explorative, playful, and aimed to challenge you physically while allowing you to travel further inward.
"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars, and started listening to the teaching of my Soul."– Rumi
