Tristan has been practicing yoga for more than half a decade – since 2012. His motto is “yoga every day”. And he lives this motto by practicing daily. That might mean he has time for one pose. More often than not he indulges in juicy 2-hour sessions.
After working in corporate America for ten years he started a journey of self-discovery. This led him to yoga, healing, and service. He is certified in the classical Sivananda yoga lineage as of 2015. He taught yoga by donation in Ajijic, Mexico. And, he taught at an amazing resort in El Salvador on two different occasions as a volunteer. That’s two stints, two years in a row. And hopefully many more.
In 2017 he went to India for six months to deepen his personal yoga practice. He used this time to study classic texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and Light on Life by Iyengar, among others. He was also given the opportunity to teach students in Mumbai, Jaipur, Om Beach, and Kudle Beach.
His teaching style blends classical and modern yoga. When he is not teaching Sivananda’s “perfect practice” class, he teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Restorative. He often custom-tailors each class based on the unique blend of attendees. He takes the time to get to know each student. Everybody gets something valuable out of his classes.
He believes in helping people identify their true values. He believes in living a more authentic life. He wants to share what he found. He is volunteering his time at the Shree Hari Yoga School.
