Dominic found yoga after his deployment to Iraq in 2015. He started his journey by taking classes to improve his anxiety and flexibility and found the inner work to be profound. This experience motivated him to want to share the practice and become a teacher.
“Yoga as a practice is something I realized early on checks all the boxes for me in life. It is home to my physical movement practice; while it is not my only movement practice, it is my ritual one. It offers me a place to explore introspection through deep meditation and breathwork. It offers me a place to learn and share what I know about the mind-body connection. I prefer to explore various ideas and concepts, choosing to keep the best parts of them and discarding the rest, which is what you will find in my teaching and movement style. I hope to have an opportunity to meet you on the mat and meet you on your journey towards remembering your wholeness.”
As a yoga and meditation teacher Dominic has worked with various modalities to him improve his skills as a student and as a teacher.
