“Yoga is first a form of exercise, second a stress reliever, third a therapeutic healer of body pain and ultimately it makes me a better person.”
Brandon: The Guru
He’s a traditionalist, with a spiritual goal. He routinely wakes up before dawn to meditate. He uses yoga as a means to ultimate enlightenment. His calm and mellow demeanor contradict his very strict, purist ways as a yoga instructor. His class is inwardly and focused, and he expects his students to be disciplined and passionate. Spirituality is the backbone of his philosophy.
“I’m looking to live in a more honest and truthful way led to my investigation into the yogic path as a way to link the physical, the mental, and the spiritual.”
