Hi, I'm Yoga Matt,I lead my classes with passion; my intention is to help you create a loving relationship with your body, mind and soul. I would like to invite you onto your mat in hope it will leave you feeling connected and energized.When not teaching Yoga, you can find me brewing craft beer in Collingwood, spending time outdoors, or on the ski hills and traveling as often as possible.The last two years have been a time of growth in the virtual world. Together, we have become part of a global community on and off our yoga mats. I look forward to meeting you in person and moving together really soon. Until then...Let's connect!
My Yoga Story
Yoga found me at a time when I needed it most. Mentally I lacked confidence & self-worth, was depressed, and full of anxiety. Physically I was 65lbs heavier and couldn’t even touch my toes. Yoga helped me develop a healthy routine and gave my life purpose. Immediately, I committed to my practice. I witnessed my life transform through hard work and dedication and I haven’t looked back.The changes I experienced inspired me to take my first teacher training in Nicaragua. I returned with an elevated sense of gratitude and am excited to share my passion for yoga with you. I am constantly learning & growing which has turned me into a confident yoga instructor and all-around better person. Through yoga I developed a loving relationship with my physical and mental health.There is no better time than now to get on your mat and take a class with me. You are invited to show up exactly as you are.
