Like most fellas, Aaron’s journey with yoga began when a girlfriend dragged him into his first Vinyasa class. His first impressions? That yoga is hard. And that by the end of it, there was a certain form of release to be felt. Intrigued, Aaron soon began to embrace the practice of yoga, evolving his once-a-week habit into a twice-a-day obsession.
Couple years (and 200 hrs) later, Aaron has since learned to apply yoga into his daily life, often using ujjayi breath to stay calm at the dentist’s or before he gets a tattoo. Aaron feels that the physical and mental benefits of yoga are undeniable. That by listening to our bodies, and bringing our awareness into our inner selves, we’re able to become more open, not only in our bodies but also in our minds.
Aaron is a huge proponent of mindfulness — moving one breath at a time — as well as the 3-second rule and of letting go of anything that doesn’t serve you. He hopes to continue learning and sharing his knowledge of yoga with those around him, bringing joy to the body and balance to the mind of his students, which is what yoga is all about.
