An unwaveringly devoted student and teacher, Peter has found profound joy in guiding non-traditional yoga students on a path of gradual lifestyle changes that enhance one's relationship to self, community and planet.
He has had the honor of studying with many master teachers around the world in his 23 years of yoga practice. His main teachers for the past 10 years have been Tias Little and Surya Little at Prajna Yoga School. His other teachers and primary influences are: Erich Schiffman, Manuso Manos, Shiva Rea, Rodney Yee and James D'Silva.
Currently, Peter is living in rural Costa Rice living and studying the principles of a lifestyle centered around a wellness that is intrinsic to the health of the planet.
Peter's warm personality brings a relaxed and playful style to his classes. His deep knowledge of anatomy and the myofacial systems of the body inform his teaching, and guide his students into greater strength, flexibility, alignment, and grace. Peter's approach is greatly influenced by Iyengar Yoga, Buddhism, and his personal experiences both as a teacher and a student.
Always ready with an absurd joke or a piece of ancient wisdom, Peter’s down to earth demeanor, his knowledge of the intricacies of the body’s mechanisms, and inspired practice draws a range of devoted students.
