Matthew discovered yoga as a last-ditch effort to heal from a back injury. On his journey, he experienced yoga's vast benefits. Ever-curious, he was determined to learn why it worked and became set on teaching others how to feel better through yoga. Matt went on to receive his 500-hour training in Brooklyn, NY, where he taught for three years before moving to Portland, OR—his current home. Matt believes that yoga should make you feel good, no matter how you arrive onto your mat. Students can expect to be moving within the first five minutes of class and instruction will always be given in practical and uncomplicated language. Above all else, he is here to serve the students and custom tailor each practice to the classes' unique needs, requests, and bodies in the room. Matt strives to see his students feeling happy and accomplished!
