Edwin is a student of wisdom (jnana), life and the journey presented in every moment. His background is in engineering with an emphasis in sustainability for building systems. During college, he took a course in eastern religions for an easy grade and also to explore what other frames of perception exist. He practiced yoga on and off but never saw it as a lifestyle or a life long journey. It was eventually the unfolding of and discovery of one's actions and reactions (karma) that eventually lead him to really discover this practice. Edwin has completed Hatha, Anuttara Raja and Vinyasa teacher trainings at Anuttara Yoga Shala.
He feels it is an honor and a pleasure to help serve the community and give back what his teachers and journey have provided; to serve is the highest calling of any Being.

Ahh-mazing Hatha Yoga
We focus on pranayama (breath control) and asana (posture) alignment. Expect detailed instruction throughout the class; the teacher will provide modifications and variations to adjust the practice to the students' level of practice. Non-heated, suitable for all levels.
“The main objective of Hatha yoga is to create an absolute balance of the interacting activities and processes of the physical body, mind and energy. When this balance is created, the impulses generated give a call of awakening to the central force, which is responsible for the evolution of human consciousness. If yoga is not used for this purpose, its true objective is lost.”
~Swami Muktibodhananda Saraswati, Commentary, 1985 translation, Hatha yoga Pradipika
