Josh’s yoga journey began while living on the road when he traveled in a tiny camper visiting studios all over the country. Josh was drawn to the slower practices like yin, gentle, and hot yoga. He took as many classes as he could and soon discovered the life-changing power of yoga. Josh was amazed how a little yoga and meditation each morning could have such a positive impact on his life. He saw tremendous improvements in his mobility, strength, and confidence. Josh wanted to share yoga’s amazing benefits with others and so he earned his RYT-200 certification in Santa Cruz, California. Shortly after, Josh moved to Traverse City. “The best move I ever made.” He is grateful to live in Northern Michigan and to be a part of the Yen Yoga community. Josh continues to grow his practice. He earned his hot yoga, yin yoga, and SUP yoga teaching certifications. He now enjoys sharing this transformative practice with his students. When he’s not on the mat, you can find Josh unicycling downtown or out at the dunes exploring.
