Joe is a passionate truth seeker and a lover of yoga, learning and technology. He thrives on instructing students in yoga of all levels and ages. Joe's journey with yoga began in 2012, taking his first yoga class in Manhattan, NY. Joe quickly discovered the benefits of mind and body connection, and took his own practice to different yoga studios around the NYC area. He studied with numerous instructors including Tao-Porchon-Lynch, who at 99 years old has over 70 years of teaching experience and is recognized as the world’s oldest yoga instructor.
After becoming more interested in the ancient philosophical path of yoga, Joe found himself on a plane to India, the birthplace of yoga, just two years after his first class, taking a leap of faith and leaving his job in NY. Looking to deepen his practice and knowledge of yoga, his journey led him to Dharamshala, where he studied the yoga asanas, meditation, philosophy, pranayama, anatomy, teaching methods and received his 200-hours level certification. In August 2014, shortly after returning from India, Joe moved to Charleston and immediately became involved in the yoga community there, and has been teaching in studios and fitness centers all over the Charleston tri-county area ever since.
