Ian’s focus is to help guide participants to make a conscious movement towards making change and to extend the knowledge that has been passed onto him over the last 27 years of experience.  

His Yoga practice is more than an exercise for good health and physique, it’s a way of living and acknowledgment of the origins of yoga beyond the asana (Yoga poses).
