My Approach

I've never thought of dance as dance and yoga as yoga but I've been practicing this whole time. There is awareness in dance and body movement and breath, knowledge, and intention. I just transferred that and brought it with me. Asana is just a pose in the dance.

Taking Form is: 

A Living Movement 

As someone who has been practicing yoga and dance for a while, I've come to appreciate the transformative power of movement. Movement, for me, isn't just about the physical act, but also about expression, connection, and growth.

It's still alive and evolving, and it's all about using movement to create positive change. Movement has the power to heal and empower.

I've experienced firsthand the power of movement to connect us with our bodies, emotions, and community. In a Living Movement, this connection is magnified as people build community, cultivate empathy, and create change.

It's about staying open to change and growth, and using movement as a tool to bring about positive change. It's about being chill, staying true to ourselves, and collaborating together to make a difference.

Acro Yoga

Acro yoga is a type of yoga that combines elements of acrobatics and partner yoga. It typically involves one person acting as a base, supporting another person who performs yoga poses and movements in the air. Acro yoga emphasizes communication, trust, and teamwork between partners, as well as strength, flexibility, and balance. It can be practiced as a form of exercise, performance art, or as a way to build community and connection.

Aerial Yoga

Aerial yoga is a type of yoga that is performed with the support of a soft fabric hammock or swing that is suspended from the ceiling. The hammock allows practitioners to explore traditional yoga poses and movements in the air, and to achieve greater depth and release in their practice. Aerial yoga can provide a unique and fun challenge for practitioners, as well as offering benefits such as spinal decompression, increased flexibility, and core strength. It is suitable for all levels of practitioners, and can be practiced as a form of exercise, therapy, or as a way to deepen one's yoga practice.

Movement in general fascinated me as a little boy jumping around. Not being able to stay still. Theatrics. I started dancing at 14 with one 8th grade hip hop class in Dover, New Jersey. I started dancing at a little studio with one hip-hop class. By my fourth year, which would have been my junior year in high-school,  I got into a program called, Governing School of Performing Arts and they only picked 12 dancers from around the state and I was the first guy ever to do it. So I knew at that moment that I liked to do it but now hanging out with people who are going to be in the industry, really set a fire under my ass! "This is it dude, this is where you belong." I started dancing with N-Sync at their world cup performance. I auditioned for Disney, got it, and had a year contract with them in Florida. Then I came back home and did Broadway Bears, which is Equity Fights Aids. All the kids from Broadway and anyone who's a working dancer get together and have this huge Burlesque Show until you're nude. It's a fun thing! I guess I needed dance in a moment in my life yoga just appeared during a shift in my life. A friend once told me, "Angel you've always been a yogi, you just didn't know you were a yogi."

More Training Details

I had decades of fitness & dance work before entering teacher training. "The proof is in the pudding!"  I've helped train yoga teachers. Teaching yoga is about giving people that dance movement and expressing part of their bodies. As opposed to other teachers, I love finding different types of ways to learn your asana practice. 


I like to have a conversation with the client around their fitness goals. Have you done any movement practice before? Do you have any physical limitations or injuries? How's your back and core?

I was a professional dancer for decades. I've taught yoga, movement, massage, and meditation. After a shift in my life, yoga allowed me to be of service to myself and others.

From beginners with no yogi asana or dance movement experience to ultra-skilled professionals who want to hone their technique.

Do you have any physical limitations or injuries? This is an important question to ask to ensure that I can tailor my guidance to your specific needs and avoid any movements that may exacerbate an injury. It's important to have a clear understanding of your fitness goals. Do you want to lose weight, gain muscle, improve your endurance, or train for a specific event? Do you want flexibility or strength? How about your back to stop hurting? Make sure you know what you want to achieve so we can work to reach your fitness goals. How often do you want to practice movement? What MOTIVATES you to practice movement? I can help you find that motivation but you can't fool a fool. You're body is capable of more than you may realize. You're welcome in my space with above-adequate equipment (silks, straps, yoga blocks) and an experienced trainer
