Brent has worked in the fitness industry since 2005. In that time, he has observed a number of fitness trends. He was drawn to Baptiste yoga because of the way it combines strength, stability, flexibility, and mindfulness into one activity. No matter what passions and pursuits one has in life, he believes yoga can enhance and complement those activities.
Unlike many of the other instructors and students at WVPY, Brent is not a model of grace and beauty in his practice. In fact, he struggles with most poses. He practices yoga precisely because it is challenging for him, and he has enjoyed improved mobility and strength from his practice. That experience gives him the conviction that everybody—no matter what his or her age, gender, fitness level, or life circumstances--can benefit from practicing yoga.
Brent has certified as a Baptiste 300 Hour Yoga Leader and is currently participating in the 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training in order to deepen his understanding and commitment to his yoga practice and teaching. In addition to his yoga credentials, he is also an ACE certified personal trainer.
