Brian has been teaching one physical modality or another since he entered the work force at 15 years old.  After catching the yoga bug in 2001, he decided to become a teacher, graduating from Sonic Yoga NYC in 2007.  At the same time, he began to explore the excitement of the partner yoga practice and has never looked back.  Practicing, playing, and teaching consistently since then.   

Brian offers many styles of yoga including Vinyasa, Restorative, Yin, Acro yoga, Thai yoga bodywork, even paddleboard yoga in the summer! His classes all contain elements of breath, playfulness and understanding of movement. Through all of his teachings he simply hopes his students come away with a better understanding of their own ability, physically and mentally.  The emphasis throughout his classes is simple: yoga is truly about union.  Be it with the divine, between body and breath or you and your Acro Yoga partner!


of any kind gives us an opportunity to explore communication, trust, strength, grace and balance in a playful, artful and inspiring way.  Through these practices we can learn to give honestly, receive truthfully, and communicate clearly (with ourself and all those we connect with).  My classes, workshops, and private sessions include many facets of yoga.  Pairing yoga with explorative tools and practices to bring people closer to their essence by learning how to build on our strengths, strengthen our weaknesses, and break free of the bonds that hold us back from creating powerful and positive relationships (with ourselves and others).
