My name is Matt. I have been practicing yoga on and off for the last several years. I became more serious about my practice in the last year, and recently achieved my RYT -200 so I could incorporate more yoga into my life. I truly believe in the full spectrum of benefits that the practice of yoga offers. I believe in it so much I feel like I have to share it with my beloved humans! When I'm not doing yoga I am on an ambulance whisking people away to the hospital. Yoga for me is freedom. It offers me a space to get in touch and check in with myself and to let go of anything that has been troubling me. It's my happy place.
