Weeks after he started attending public yoga classes Mark experienced a radical shift in his ability to ease fully fall asleep at night and stay asleep. This experience birthed a passion for practice and study and for the next fourteen years Mark was on the yoga mat a lot! In 2003 Mark’s studies culminated in his discovery of Anusara Yoga. Mark was overcome by the potency of Anusara to empower any yogic path with its simple, creative & profound principles. Through Anusara he experienced a soaring of his practice on all levels. Since his discovery Mark has spent over 1500hrs in Certified Anusara Trainings and has taught over 3700 public and private classes. For six years Mark worked alongside Licensed Physical Therapists integrating Anusara’s Universal Principles of Alignment into traditional P.T. to treat a wide range of structural issues. Though highly inspired by Anusara Yoga, Marks teaching style is a blend of all the yoga traditions he has studied including Ashtanga, Iyengar and Bikram yoga. He draws his inspiration from life and his primary teachers his beloved wife Ciel, Noah Maze, John Friend and Joseph. Mark’s highest vision is to see a world where life’s divinity is felt and celebrated in every moment! Mark lives with his family in Sebastopol, Ca.
