My story

First steps

Ian is a native of Ohio and grew up competing in tennis tournaments and ski races. Endurance, however, proved to be his forte as he became a nationally ranked amateur triathlete before racing professionally for two years.

His passion for teaching and guiding others was born while still in college at North Carolina State University, Ian founded a triathlon club where he trained student triathletes for the Collegiate National Championships where he himself placed 2nd overall. 


After graduating from the University of South Carolina and after nearly 10 years working with corporations domestically and internationally, developing a successful international travel business, Ian decided it was time to step away from the computer & office and get out to help people with their health & wellness. 

My Yoga Journey

Coming to yoga in 2002, Ian discovered that yoga had the ability to relieve stress and rejuvenate his energy in a way that running, cycling, and swimming did not. 


A year later, he immersed himself in the remote wilderness of Southern Brazil to participate in the Native American Vision Quest, an experience that inspired a parallel path of intensive retreats into nature. He underwent Level I Vinyasa-based Yoga Teacher Training in 2008, and in 2013, completed the Sivananda Level I and Advanced Yoga Teacher Training courses in Val Morin, Canada.


In addition to working with personal training clients, Ian now teaches a variety of classes throughout Miami: Sivananda, Vinyasa Flow, Beginners, Gentle Yoga and Meditation. He leads Yoga Teacher Training programs at the 200-hour level, and his students have become inspiring and successful yoga teachers.
