Introduction: The physical practice of yoga began intertwining itself into Matthew's life in 2012. A friend recommended a Power Vinyasa Yoga class which shifted the trajectory of his path, it was a feeling of rejuvenation mixed with a stronger sense of empathy and compassion towards himself and others. Since that first class Matthew had practiced for five years and in June of 2017 he earned his 200 hour teacher training certification through CorePower Yoga. Matthew has evolved his teaching style to predominately speak to the body, where students will learn more about their own anatomy and how to achieve depth in their yoga shapes using leverage and muscle activation. Constant learning is what makes yoga a lifelong practice, one way to create this longevity is to cross-pollinate with other movement practices. This has led Matthew to instruct an unconventional style of yoga that often includes added mobility routines along with the added practice of functional human movements. Matthew whole-hardheartedly believes yoga needs to translate outside of the studio because it is how we move ourselves during the 16 or so hours in which we are awake that greatly impact how we practice movement for only one of those hours.

I have taken Matthew’s classes for years and always walk away satisfied and challenged. His classes will push you both mentally and physically out of your comfort zone. He has a calm and soothing voice that makes you feel welcome and have a sense of belonging, regardless of how long you have been practicing yoga or what level you’re at. My favorite aspect of his teaching is the way he cues the poses. As you hold the pose, he is giving pointers and explaining the proper alignment so that you constantly are improving your practice. He will also give multiple options to fit whatever challenge you’re looking for that day. His attention to the smallest of detail is unmatched. It’s clear that Matthew has a passion for teaching yoga.

Matthew is one of the best yoga instructors I’ve ever had. He is VERY focused on the class. He performs each movement with high precision so we, students, are always looking after improving our yoga practice. He is very professional, his good manners always making the class a relaxed experience. I highly recommend him!

Matthew is an amazing and professional yoga instructor. His classes are fun, motivating, meditative and challenging. He takes time to understand his students and ensures everyone is learning proper yoga techniques. In the 1½ years of taking his classes, I’ve learned to be more patient and appreciate what my body can do. He is truly a master of his craft. I leave his classes feeling energized and rejuvenated. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend him!

Matthew led a weekly class in our neighborhood boutique for two+ years. He was the best yoga instructor with whom I'd ever practiced. Professional, "on point," and adaptive to needs of individual yoginis and yogis. Sessions with Matthew are constructive, balanced, and rewarding!

Matthew is an amazing instructor. What makes him so good is that he explains what you should be thinking, feeling and activating while you’re doing your moves. His choice of words while he guides you allows for you to evolve as a human. Getting more conscious of the present moment.
