Joe’s yoga evolved out of a devoted path of seeking self-expression through various athletic mediums in which he became an accomplished competitor and instructor: tennis, kayaking, skiing, and snowboarding. He earned a BS in Recreational Management from Mars Hill University in 1996. His yoga is an amalgamation of in-depth knowledge of body mechanics, a well studied understanding of the complexities of movement, and his own personal journey on a spiritual path.

His therapeutic approach is highly regarded by students who are grateful for his knowledge and devotion.
