Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Matt was studying biology at university when he enrolled in a dance class upon the whimsical suggestion of a friend. Something changed in him during that first dance course as he discovered the joy of movement. He next enrolled in a yoga class and decided he wanted to study movement full-time.
Several years later, he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from California State University Long Beach, a yoga teacher training at a Sivananda ashram in India and a Pilates matwork training with Power Pilates in LA.
Based in the UK since 2009, Matt teaches alignment-focused classes which are dynamic, challenging and un-rushed. With a thorough knowledge of anatomy which informs his teaching, he is a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals and leads the anatomy portion of several teacher training courses as well as providing mentoring and CPD workshops to current teachers.
Having formerly danced professionally, Matt still has a strong yoga and movement practice which informs his teaching.
Matt is a proud father of two.
