He has traveled widely, visiting many holy sites in India and Nepal in order to understand the roots of yoga. He has practiced with diverse teachers from the west and the east, and has been strongly influenced by visits to Plum Village (Thich Nhat Hanh) and years of intensive study with Tsakpo Rinpoche. After many years based in Cologne, Germany, he and his wife Liz moved to a small farm in rural Ontario and took ownership of a yoga studio in Kingston in 2017.

When he’s at home, you’ll find him getting muddy in the vegetable garden, tending to a small crew of chickens and goats, and exploring his connection to the land.
