Steve Bisby, RYT 200
One advantage of coming to yoga relatively late in life is that Steve was quickly aware of the improvements it was making to his overall well being. His lower back issues were almost immediately all but eliminated. As he continued it improved his flexibility, recovery time and mental attitude, weight loss took a little longer but eventually followed. Wanting to both deepen his knowledge of yoga and pass on its benefits to others, teacher training was the obvious next step. Steve is very proud to be a graduate of the Inaugural Teacher Training class at MOVE YFD and even more proud to be a member of the teaching staff here.
