Steve, in his personal practice and as a teacher, takes a playful, exploratory, sometimes raucous, approach to yoga, focusing on gracefully and dynamically linking poses to the breath. A graduate of the Savannah (GA) Yoga Center’s 200 hour program and the Asheville Yoga Center’s 500 hour program, he has had the privilege of studying with a number of gifted teachers, including Stephanie Keach, Kelley Boyd, Desiree Rumbaugh, Cora Wen, Doug Keller, Max Strom, David Keil, and Scott Blossom. Steve approaches yoga as a movement meditation that deepens our awareness of our bodies, minds, and spirits.
Steve is an RYT 500/ERYT 200 certified teacher.
Vinyasa means "flow" or merging movement with the breath. These classes focus on breathing and seek to move students through a sequence of postures as the breath flows in and out. Using this breath, heat or "tapas" warms the body allowing the practitioner to move deeper into postures and eventually deeper into their own personal practice. Vinyasa yoga increases strength, stamina and flexibility while calming and steadying the mind. This class style is inherently diverse and sequencing will vary with each instructor's personal flavor.
