An executive at a local bank with a strong background in competitive sport, Ian felt like a square peg in a round hole walking in to a yoga studio for the first time. That first class was tough! One month later there was little hesitation committing to a membership. A daily practice developed and the edges started to soften. The studio and sangha became the highlight of his day. Books on anatomy and yoga philosophy started to fill his bookshelf. After practicing for two years and volunteering at the front desk Ian’s journey took in Moksha teacher training in Los Angeles, Feb ’14. He followed that up with Vipassana Meditation and Flow training in ’15 then most recently Yin teacher training in ’17.
On the mat Ian is passionate about sharing the mental health benefits of yoga, and he’s an advocate of the Modo/Moksha seven pillars off it. Ian is an abstract artist. He’s bicycled coast-to-coast across Canada, hiked both the West Coast and Chilkoot trails, and paddled solo around Prince Edward Island by sea kayak. His spare time is spent fixing up an old sailboat hopeful that one day he’ll have it ready to explore the Sea of Cortez and Central America.
