As the son of a professional athlete, I remained active in competitive and recreational sports throughout most of my life, collecting knowledge of the body in motion (kinesiology/ proprioception). Running, Hiking, Surfing, and Rock Climbing also occupied my time.
The active lifestyle, compassionate nature, and passion for the kitchen (Lead Sushi Chef "RA Sushi") lured me into a career in the wellness field as a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer and Nutrition Coach. My fascination with the human form and its stellar potential, accompanied by a philosophical spirit (Native American and Japanese Ancestry) steered me deeper into the Holistic mind/body/spirit realm of Yoga, Meditation, and Massage Therapy.
I have been vigorously trained in the vinyasa stylings of Ashtanga Yoga (Hatha/Raja/Pranayama), Vinyasa, Thai Yoga Massage Therapy, Reiki, Anapanasati & Vippasana Meditation.
It has been an honor traveling the world to countries such as Thailand, Jamaica, and Belize guiding Yoga Retreats and advancing my practice.
It is my life purpose to continue co-creating transformational experiences with you and our community, discovering new bountiful ways to live in-the-now.
