About The Gentle Rebel

- Yoga Shaman -

"To be able to share
my knowledge of yoga
and ancient teachings
has been one of life’s
most magnificent gifts"

The Gentle Rebel

His soul journey began in 1996 after reading a book on Bruce Lee - The Warrior Within. The book profoundly changed the course of his life.

Since that day he has been studying and putting into practice many ancient teachings which began with Eastern philosophy including Buddhism, Hinduism and the Tao. His love of ancient knowledge led him back to the wisdom teachings of the shamans, where all spiritual knowledge began.

Exploring and teaching the connections between yoga and shamanism is a life long evolving journey. Through teaching on the mat, storytelling, talks and workshops, these teachings deeply resonate with many people from different walks of life.

Yoga is so much more than just a physical exercise. For me, it has been a way to understand that we are not separate from nature, we are nature. This is the link that connects yoga and shamanism. You don't have to agree or even understand this to enjoy my teachings, you will find your own path through your yoga practice.

He has been teaching since 2007 and has taught all over the world, including India, the motherland of yoga. 

He also writes and speaks on the subject of 'ancient teachings for modern times' and helps people to "awaken the warrior within."
