Max's journey on the yoga mat started in 2013. A journey packed with transformation and change has revealed to him a beautiful way of life. A practice that involves a lot more than just the physical level of Asana. A practice that is deeply in tune with the mental, physical, and spiritual levels of ourselves. As his journey continued on the yoga mat he realized that this feeling, this thought process, this lifestyle, this practice of the mind, body, and spirit was no stranger. Max's strong comprehension of yoga came from a direct correlation of his love for martial arts. His heart filled with light knowing that his yoga journey actually started with the day he stepped on a Jiu Jitsu mat in 2008.
His yoga teacher training with Maureen Gildersleeve in 2013 has helped him develop a strong and challenging class. You'll leave Max's class fulfilled, at peace, and with a smile on your face.
"Being born and raised on the island of Maui has given me a strong connection between me and the earth. I love teaching here in Encinitas, because of the strong connection within the community. I am so grateful for this community, and surrender my heart to give back to this community that has given me so much in such a short time."- Max
