"Focus. Invigorate. Ignite."

I'm a certified yoga teacher (E-RYT 200), an ambitious learner, and a recovering perfectionist with a B.S. in Psychology and both a B.M and M.M. in Music. I came to yoga looking for a strong physical practice that would give me a workout, but more importantly, a "brain vacation" for my anxious, neurotic, grad school self. I quickly found that through yoga, I was able to find more mental peace and less anxiety while also getting stronger. For years after grad school, it nurtured my career as a professional opera singer, while I navigated the demands of constant travel, loneliness, and striving in vain to have a flawless voice and perfect career. After a long run in the fulfilling-yet-challenging professional singing world, I decided to shift gears and become a yoga teacher. I've not looked back since, and I revel in the fact that yoga allows me to be my most authentic, non-perfect self. || Instagram: @yogimatthew

My Philosophy

I help busy, high achieving people improve their strength, flexibility and overall fitness through mindful movement (and probably a little sweat). The yoga practice that I teach combines the best of all possible worlds: the physicality and athleticism of a strong, breath-focused vinyasa flow, along with the powerful mental benefits of mindfulness and introspection. I am dedicated to empowering you with the ability to improve your fitness and to find mental peace both on and off the mat.
