ABOUT CHAD

In 1967 I became involved with the Martial Arts. I wasn't aware of it as an art at that time. I entered as a shy, angry teenager and trained hard for a good number of years before I got to the artful part. That eventually led to an understanding that was carried over into my studies of yoga and bodywork. There was always a deeper place to go if you were open to it.

 

I studied many styles of Martial Arts and they all came around to a still point within; the same with studying the many systems of yoga and bodywork. It was wonderful to realize that this was a dharma experience. No need to hurry. Settle in and enjoy.

 

After over 40 years of study and practice with many, many, many teachers, I'm still amazed at the depth of the journey.

 

I teach from a place where there's a journey open to all, called life. Yoga helps us to be more open and present in our journey. I teach to simplify and to hopefully inspire each student to be open to their own journey, open to both the struggles and the joys, and to find a place of deep gratitude instead of perfection.

 

I don't really have a style, I have a practice, and it becomes intuitively presented through the teaching or sharing. One doesn't really teach someone something; the art is to create a circumstance that they get. That's the joy, a connection to something deeper that they have found.
