Joe has been doing yoga since 2004. Prior to yoga, Joe’s practice was primarily sitting at a desk, hunched over a computer. Needless to say, his first yoga class was an eye-opener.
Joe has explored several schools of Hatha Yoga including Forrest, Yin, and Iyengar. Joe finished his 200 hour yoga teacher certification at Bloom Yoga Studio in June 2016. Joe’s class puts an emphasis on safety, breath, and alignment as the foundation to a healthy yoga practice. In addition, Joe has been trained in Trauma-Informed Yoga (TIY) and volunteers at the Cook County Jail teaching TIY to inmates.
Joe has three daughters. In his free time, Joe can be found hiking, in the garden, cooking, or strumming a guitar.
