Hi my name is Seth! My yoga journey began in 2007 at the suggestion of a friend and teacher, who later on became a mentor of mine. At the time I was working in the trades as a welder and metal fabricator, and having always had a disposition towards rigorous exercise routines I had heard about the Bikram experience and was eager to give it a try. I finally made it to my first class on my own, however I don’t recall much of it, all that I know is that I was smiling the whole time, simultaneously feeling a sense of shame at how uncoordinated I was. After a few weeks of regular practice I noticed the difference the Bikram practice made in not only my balance and coordination, but also in my focus and discipline which carried into other areas of my life. For years my practice ebbed and flowed, although it was always apparent whenever I felt out of sorts, it was usually because I hadn’t practiced for a long time. In September 2013 I underwent a 3rd brain surgery to remove a cyst near the base of my spinal cord; the cyst a result of a tumor fused with the brain stem. The first thought that came into my mind after waking up from that operation was of course “yoga”! But more than as a student, I wanted to become a teacher, and almost a year to the date I began my Bikram training in the fall of 2014. Since then I’ve been able to travel the world teaching in several other countries and major cities in the United States. I am very grateful to have the opportunity and experience of teaching yoga, as it has sustained my own life. It is my objective as a teacher to give this experience of self-realization to all my students.
