My passion for yoga began in the beginning of my practice, many moons ago before teaching wasnt even a option for me. I am happy to say it has only gotten deeper since I began teaching and it pleases me to share the endless benefits and mysterious the yogic path has to offer. I want my students to have a deep meaningful practice after they learn from me so I am well rounded, direct, and meticulous. The Ananda Bhakti YTT has taught me many things about life and the uniqueness of my training experience will be forever with me in my teachings, and also forever shining through my personality.
Yoga is my lifestyle and teaching it is just enjoyable and rewarding to its core. The yogic life is such a beautfiul pleasent one that opening it up to people who are intersted in learning about it make me feel fulfilled.
He is patient and explains movements very well , he always give a modification for more difficult poses all the while keeping a very calm and zen presence .
I had never done yoga before so it was a little intimidating but Matthew was so gentle and patient with me! He really knows what he is doing and adapts to everyone’s level of yoga knowledge. Taking his class made me want to explore yoga more, he is a wonderful teacher! Highly recommend!
Amazing teacher with enjoyable classes
He was a very knowledgeable, fun, easy going teacher who worked me hard pushing me to improve as well as allowing rewarding restorative/blissful poses. My interest in yoga has peaked much after working with Matthew.
At first meet I like to go over past experiences of yoga, your goals for training with me, past injuries or health issues, and see if there are areas that you would like to not focus on. After we get to talking I will be able to adjust my teaching style better and more personal for you.
I have been personally practicing for 11 years at many different locations around the world. My 235hr YTT program registers with the Yoga Alliance named Ananda Bhakti was completed at The Studio Cleveland on the east bank of the flats downtown in 2015
60mins 1on1-20$ Or 5 for 80$
90mins1on1-25$ Or 5 for 100$
120mins1on1-35$ Or 5 for 140$
After completing my YTT I began teaching at the studio I studied at. I have now moved onto more personal teaching and looking for a new studio
all sizes, ages, levels, and from almost every continent.
Make sure you feel a connection and have trust with your teacher. Without that you won't be able to fully learn or get anything positive from the experience.
Know what you want from the journey. Yoga is a practice, a way of life, and to many their spirituality guide. If you are looking for just the physical aspect, the practice of Asanas then make sure to be upfront about that with your teacher. It's not a negative thing at all and is often how many yogi/yoginis come to the practice and then decide to get deeper. If you just want a basics course and not trying for intermediate or advanced, again very ok, all aspects of yoga are amazing and life changing for the better so wether you want to dip your toes or fully jump in just know it is a practice that you yourself need to decide to do and no one can or will make you do it:)
