Bryan has been working with SchoolYoga Institute for the past four years. He teaches Sadhana Hatha and Vinyasa Flows and leads Yoga Teacher Trainings worldwide. Bryan has also worked as an outdoor guide for Raw Shakti Yoga, a yoga retreat and adventure company, since their beginnings in 2004 (visit www.rawshakti.com). He is passionate about the outdoor places he shares with groups. If he isn’t traveling, Bryan teaches yoga in New Hampshire. An avid hiker, he likes to climb his favorite mountain, Monadnock, at least once a week when he’s home.
In 2008, Bryan started Blooming Mountain to offer yoga to business people in corporate settings. He sees so many people burdened by stress and developing unhealthy habits at work. Although workplace stress is often accepted as normal, Bryan believes it doesn’t need to be this way and that yoga has a tremendous amount of wisdom and health benefits to offer business employees.
