Matt has been practicing yoga for 9 years. He is a student of Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga. A senior Therapeutic Yoga and Vinyasa Fundamentals assistant, his primary teachers are Kathryn Beet and Patricia White.
Matt shares plenty of detail for each of the postures in his Vinyasa classes. His hands-on assists provide new students with fundamental information about the poses and advanced students an opportunity to deepen their practice. He creates a gentle yet vigorous flowing class, effectively yoking the mind to the breath and the breath to the movement. His gentle demeanour brings a unique expression to what is a very physical practice, drawing out the strength of each individual.
Students of all levels move through the poses with confidence and ease as he strongly encourages them to go only so far as they are ready to go on any given day. Individuals are given time in the postures as well as plenty of opportunity to fully receive them. The emphasis here is on learning to listen to your body and allowing your practice to be guided from within. This creates an environment of permission in which students may let go of self-imposed limitations and perhaps surprise themselves.
