Arin Trook is the Education Director of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES.) A life-long educator and ecologist, the roots of Arin’s yoga teaching run deep in the wild landscapes of the world. In addition to running ACES’ children’s programs, Arin is also the co-founder of the WildYoga teacher training program (RYS200) in Yosemite, CA, the first outdoor/nature-based training program in the country. Arin has studied with Richard Freeman, John Friend, and Judith Lassiter, as well as learning Vedic chanting and kirtan in Tamil Nadu, India. Arin trained as a yoga teacher with the Bihar School in Rishikesh, India in 2005, as well as with the Balanced Rock vinyasa program in California (RYT200.)
Arin's yoga classes blend strong asana alignment with sacred song and pranayama practice. He brings yoga philosophy alive through dynamic storytelling, kirtan, and creative reflection. Yoga with Arin is a holistic experience, reaching back to the ancient roots of yoga and calling on the playfulness of the monkey-god Hanuman.
After living and teaching in Hawaii, Alaska, India, Costa Rica and Europe, Arin currently works as the education director of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) and lives with his wife Liesa and son Kosma at Hallam Lake in Aspen.
