From his early childhood as far back as he can remember, he had a strong spiritual upbringing. When he started studying music, it enhanced a deep connection to the divine. From music came meditation, and from meditation came the desire to study yoga. His first introduction was found in a small book that had various postures that he practiced daily.
By his third yoga class, he knew his calling was to teach. He signed up for the very next teacher training program, moved to Los Angeles, and immersed himself in a vigorous nine-week schedule that tested every fiber of his being. Upon graduating top of his class, he made sure to teach his first class the very next day.
He is happy to call San Diego his home where his wife, Lorraine and him are raising their two beautiful children Azlan and Anaya. He has a regular schedule teaching all throughout San Diego. His amazing journey with yoga has led him all over the world teaching workshops, retreats, and teacher training programs.
