Warren found yoga in fall 2006 when he was experiencing a lot of suffering through trauma, pain, anxiety and depression. His very first public yoga class was a 90 minute hot yoga sequenced class where he gladly survived and soon learned that room temperature yoga classes also existed. In 2012 he discovered Ayurveda and mantra meditation. Aside from the knowledge he gained, it was the experience that he fell in love with.
Warren holds an associate’s degree in culinary arts. In 2002 he became a licensed massage therapist and currently has a private practice in which he specializes in Ayurvedic therapies and trigger point therapy for pain management. He was drawn to teach yoga by the sense of connection and gratitude he felt in his own practice.
Aiming to share the practice of yoga with others, Warren completed his 200-level yoga teacher training in January 2015. He is trained in Baptiste-inspired power vinyasa, Yin, and Restorative yoga. Recently, Warren completed his 500-level yoga training specializing in yoga therapy in practice. Warren is currently enrolled at an accredited IAYT yoga therapy program and is a yoga therapy intern.
Warren’s classes offer a welcoming space to become present, find a sense of balance, and a capacity to relinquish and let go. The use of props is encouraged, and support and modifications are offered to those experiencing limited mobility. His primary goal is to share the practice in a way that is accessible to all: to meet people where they are, as they are.
