Ernest

Ernest has been practicing and teaching yoga for a combination
of eleven years. While team sports were never his forte, he has
been a movement enthusiast for as long as he can remember and has
always been thoroughly intrigued by the human body and its
incredible abilities. While exploring various movement forms,
Ernest discovered Yoga asana practice and it was love at first …
Sun salutation. He continued to practice yoga for about two years
before a friend asked him if he would be interested in becoming a
teacher. He had no idea then that this was a step in the direction
that would put him on the path to becoming the teacher and Yogi he
is today.  
Ernest discovered NYT almost 8 years ago and it was then that he
realized just how much more there was to learn about the yoga
lifestyle and practice. It was at NYT that he met his mentor,
teacher & friend Nydia Darby and became an important part of
the NYT yoga family that embraced his beautiful heart and
spirit.  He brought with him many unique skills and abilities
and began teaching yoga classes at Nydia’s Yoga Therapy in 2011 as
part of the NYT Therapeutic Yoga Research Team.   Ever
since then, Nydia has continued to mentor, guide and encourage him
along his yoga lifestyle and teaching journey.
Ernest has become enamored with the Eight-Limbed “Astanga” yoga
lifestyle path and the NYT method that draws out the therapeutic
potential of traditional Hatha yoga practices.  He has
continued his studies with Nydia and her mentor/teacher and friend,
Beryl Bender Birch--founder and director of the Hard & the Soft
Yoga Institute. He has attended as many of Beryl’s workshops as
possible to deepen his understanding of yoga asana, yoga lifestyle,
meditation, and the yoga sutras, as well as developing his own
personal growth and awareness.   Ernest has also explored
the teachings of a variety of yoga instructors while attending the
Texas Yoga Conference in Houston, Texas as well as the Symposium on
Yoga Therapy And Research(SYTAR) in Austin, Texas and other local
facilities in the surrounding area.
Ernest is registered with Yoga Alliance as RYT-200 and a
graduate of The Open Hand Institute’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher
Training program www.OpenHandInstitute.com.
As a dedicated lifelong learner, Ernest understands that his
journey has just begun.  He knows that he has so much more to
learn and to explore and that there is way more fun to be had on
this adventure.
Ernest has been practicing and teaching yoga for a combination
of eleven years. He is an RYT-200 graduate of The Open Hand
Institute Yoga Teacher Training Program and has been teaching at
Nydia’s Yoga Therapy studio for 8 years.
