Known for his joyful energy, skilled touch and sense of humor, Pete creates a spiritual yet light-hearted environment for his students to discover the deeper benefits of yoga. Pete’s ability to compassionately guide students of all levels through a vigorous asana practice makes his classes amongst the most dynamic in the bay area. He has also taught yoga at Yoga Journal Conference, Asia Yoga Conference, Wanderlust, and Bhaktifest.
In addition to teaching classes, workshops and retreats, Pete mentors and leads teacher training programs and workshops. He shares his own 200 hour teacher training, Lighting the Path, and he is a Faculty member of the 200 hr and 500 hr Yoga Tree Teacher Training. His intention in instructing teachers is to share the value of quality sequencing and hands-on adjustments so that new teachers can bring healing to their own communities. Having studied with Ana Forrest since 2003, and assisted her in her workshops and teacher trainings, Pete is passionate about helping teachers build trust in themselves and become their “wiser self,” the place from which he encourages them to teach.
