Brian came to yoga from a business and law background. After over 15 years of fitness and boxing experience, Brian tried yoga and was awed by the metamorphosis he experienced and continues to experience through his yoga practice. Brian truly believes that the practice of yoga can inspire both mental and physical transformation through the development of strength, balance, flexibility, focus, stamina and body awareness — enabling each of us to tap into our true inner potential.
Inspired by the profound impact the practice has had on his life, Brian is eager to share his passion for yoga. After owning a studio at home in Montreal, Canada, Brian began teaching online, assisting practitioners of all levels in deepening their practice. Brian’s online presence has been repeatedly featured by Instagram and various websites and blogs as one of the top yoga accounts on Instagram. He now works with private individuals and professional athletes and travels wordwide teaching workshops, retreats and intensive yoga teacher trainings. Back home in Montreal, Brian runs a superfood-based health food company by the name of Karmavore Superfoods, which he started in 2014 as a passion project and has grown into a thriving business with widespread distribution.
In achieving his advanced personal practice, Brian recognizes and demonstrates that anything is possible. One of Brian’s favourite quotes by Sri T. Krishnamacharya affirms that, “yoga makes the impossible possible, and the possible easy”. Brian believes that many of yoga’s benefits come from persisting through the ‘impossibilities’ and challenges we are all confronted with throughout our lives both on and off the mat. The transformative power of yoga comes from the reprogramming of pre-established mental pathways and thought processes, thereby allowing us to overcome beliefs deeply rooted within our psyches. Confronting deeply held beliefs about ourselves liberates us from their limiting effects and unleashes the practitioner’s true potential.
It is through this philosophy, coupled with varied experience and extensive training, that Brian develops classes that are accessible to all levels of students. Postures and transitions are broken down in a way that is easy to understand and makes sense in the body, enabling students to develop new body awareness in order to help deepen their practice and discover the truly transformative magic of yoga.
