Dan is committed to guiding individuals as they "step into their power" on and off the mat. His journey toward the path of yoga started at the age of seven through his experience with a wide variety of martial arts, such as karate, jiu jitsu, capoeira, tai chi and qi gong.
A kinesthetic learner by nature, Dan's introduction to a serious yoga practice in 2009 was a welcomed and empowering transition. He is committed to offering purposeful, individualized and playful classes that urge individuals to venture deeper into the realm of possibility, particularly in the areas of inversions, arm balances, back bends, and partner work.
Dan's classes are laboratories for inquisitiveness, creativity, and group collaboration. He believes that yoga holds the potential to create positive and substantial shifts in the lives of all individuals regardless of their experience.
Dan is a certified power vinyasa instructor at Big Yoga in Houston, Texas, and is the Chief Empowerment Officer and Co-Founder of In-Powered (www.in-powered.org), a local charity that brings the gift of yoga into prisons, schools, and other communities.
