WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A Broga® INSTRUCTOR?

To inspire men to find their mat.

WHAT SONG GETS YOUR CLASS PUMPED DURING THE H.I.I.T. SECTION?

It’s always a song from The Black Keys! I ask for suggested and my students always yell out Black Keys and they get cranky if I plan another song.

HAVE YOU RUN INTO ANY MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT BROGA® AND HOW HAVE YOU RESPONDED?

People think it is only for men so I always need to be sensitive about gender identity.

I teach at 10am on Saturday at Borealis Community yoga. And privates too.

IN ADDITION TO BROGA®/YOGA WHAT OTHER FITNESS AND HOBBIES DO YOU ENJOY?

I love working with kettle bells and primal moves. They pair very well with the yoga practice.
