A native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Matthew has lived in the DC area for 30 years. He began his path with yoga and meditation about 10 years ago. Inspired by the many teachers he encountered, Matthew enrolled completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2017. He also completed a 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training in June of the same year. Subsequently, Matthew has received training in restorative yoga and Yoga Nidrā. He brings a mellow vibe into his classes and workshops, with the intent of making yoga accessible and fulfilling to your body and spirit. A life-long learner and seeker, Matthew is always looking to gain greater insight and understanding into the limbs of yoga and the human spirit. When not in the studio, you’ll find Matthew grooving to music, on the hunt for good paper and pens, out for long rides on his road bike, or happily lost in a book store.
