Josh began his studies of the yoga tradition in 2006 shortly after arriving in San Diego from Boulder, CO. Initially he saw yoga as a remedy for his many years of injuries from skateboarding, snowboarding and BMX, but his yoga practice revealed something far greater. For the first time, Josh found a language and set of teachings that mirrored the ways in which he was examining the world. This left him with a desire for knowledge and a thirst for experience.
In 2012, Josh stumbled upon a lineage that would shape the course of his practice and teachings forever. It inaugurated ongoing and in-depth studies with Chase Bossart, a student of T.K.V. Desikachar. This immersion into the healing and therapeutic aspects of yoga would eventually lead to his first extended stay in India and studies at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. His trip to India stoked the fire within that continues to keep his passion alive.
Since then, Josh has had the opportunity to train with and learn from some of the most influential teachers in the world. He has learned from masters of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. He has studied with experts of the subtle body, innovators of the posture practice, and scholars in the ancient tradition including classical yoga philosophy, Vedic chant and Sanskrit. Josh teaches an integrated approach to well-being through the application of yoga technique with an aim in bridging the gap between the modern day yoga practice, with its strong emphasis on posture, and the ancient wisdom tradition that has been at the root of the practice for thousands of years.
