practice since 2005. Recently, Yama Yoga expanded its

strengthening and grounding practice, based in
principles of alignment. He is also the creator of the
True North Bodywork technique, a sequence of assisted
stretches, massage techniques and energy work for all
body types, the news release added.
He is a Master Reiki Healer and facilitates a variety of
personal growth and transformation modalities through
sound, song and chant, the news release added.
