Dan started this incredible journey called yoga after retiring from the Army with 21 years. It began in 2008 watching the P90X DVDs and that transitioned to a once a week class in 2010 when he became a Department of the Army Civilian. After seeing how he was not happy with what he was doing, Dan’s wife asked him, “What makes you happy, Dan?” He told her he liked yoga, so he found the emPower School of Yoga in Nashville, TN, where he got his RYT-200 in March 2017. He has since gotten his RYT-500 from Baptiste Power Yoga Nashville and graduated from Level One Baptiste Power Yoga, and completed the Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher’s Course, Unstoppable and Unbreakable both from the Baptiste Institute.
Dan now helps certify others to be yoga teachers. His style of teaching is one of fun and challenge. He loves keeping things light as he inject his dad joke sense of humor in his teaching. Dan loves giving lots of options during his flows as he encourages his students to push their edges. These options usually involve some sort of arm balance or inversion, but not always. Dan sees yoga as a tool for life. The lessons we learn on our mat can be applied off our mat.
