Strength & Stillness

Yoga for body and Mind

YOGA DESIGNED FOR THE NEEDS OF MEN

Great Workout

A mind/body workout that will get you moving, breathing and sweating like no other yoga class you’ve tried (this isn’t just glamorized stretching). Come to develop strength, stamina, and flexibility to enhance the rest of your life.

Calm Mind

Does “stillness” of mind seem like some esoteric BS? Come experience what it’s like to slow down your wild and anxious thoughts to finally feel a sense of calmness and ease. Develop awareness and focus so you can experience the best of life here and now.

Brotherhood

Come meet a kick ass group of guys. From financial planners to artists, techies to writers, we are here for each other. Network, befriend, and create a community of guys to help you stay motivated, accountable, and connected.

Free Man

Develop the courage and compassion to be true under pressure. Stay open in the face of challenge so you can lead a life with heart no matter your circumstances.

Back health

Loosen up stiff muscles around your neck, shoulders and low back. Move freely and easily so you can do the activities you love without pain.

core strength

Look beyond a six pack to experience what it’s like to have a strong core–one that serves you. Learn to utilize your trunk to move intelligently and gracefully.

About Matt

Who is this guy?

Certified Yoga Instructor

I’ve been practicing yoga for over 10 years from Anusara to Iyengar and Power Yoga lineages. I completed my yoga teacher training at Core Power in Berkeley.

Mind/Body Training

I received my black belt in Karate at 18. In high school and college I learned to wrestle, surf, swim, and mountaineer. Weightlifting and meditation keep my ego in check. All these disciplines are evident in my teaching.

Lifestyle

Yoga teaches you about the good stuff in life, that deep wisdom attained through experience. Like the lessons you learn while lost in Morocco, or walking 500 miles across Spain on the Camino de Santiago, or cycling up the Julian Alps, or owning up to your fear of marriage (that’s me right there).

Fun Facts

I live in Berkeley with my beautiful wife and daughter. I co-own a bakery and chef it up on the regular. I burned out from yoga once because I took myself way too seriously. My favorite thing to do aside from yoga is talk about life with friends over great food in the outdoors.
