Open Vinyasa ($12)
Why do you teach Yoga? I teach yoga because I believe that it is the most honest path for self healing, awareness, and exploration. Each practice offers us an opportunity to observe, witness, and learn more about ourselves so that we can thrive closer to our full potential.
Something surprising about you: My self-symbol is a fire hydrant and I embarked on a journey with it through art and empirical research that began seven years ago.
What inspires you? Most recently, I have been inspired by the pattern of life/death/life, regeneration, evolution, and the way that centering/creating around a deep void has the power to bring fullness into life.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Having a child/giving birth to an earthling.
Training/Certifications: 200-HR RYT from Yoga District in Washington, DC; Reiki I & II; currently pursuing 500-HR RYT at Thrive Yoga
Why do you teach Yoga? Yoga came to me at a low point in my life, picked me up, brushed me off, and taught me how to see the light in myself and others again. I hope to impart this healing energy and practice to others, so that they too can don their rose-tinted glasses.
Something surprising about you: My greatest dream is to become an astronaut, even though I’m terrified of heights.
What inspires you? Music, art, philosophy, poetry, literature, science, nature, astronomy, the ocean, great acts of love, the human experience, everything to some extent.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Scuba diving with great white sharks… outside of the cage!

Observing the change in other people's faces, body language and tone of voice when they speak about their passions. It's wonderful to witness and it inspires me to be true to myself.

Peter first came to yoga as a way to stretch his body after sports and weight lifting, but quickly noticed his connection with yoga went much deeper than "just stretching". Peter uses yoga as a moving meditation to bring more awareness to his breath and his sense of self. He enjoys everything, from a hot and fiery class, to a deeply meditative and restorative class. Peter uses his physical therapy and personal training background to focus on integrating specific muscles which aid in alignment and stability in each posture. Peter believes yoga is for everyone, and creates a space for students to find what works best for their own bodies.
Describe yourself in three words: Dynamic, compassionate, ballsy.
Why do you teach Yoga? Nothing beats the feeling of an amazing yoga practice opening the body, mind, and spirit, to their full state of connection with all-being. To act as a guide for people to find that practice within themselves is the most amazing gift!
What inspires you? I am constantly and consistently inspired by the passionate, beautiful human beings around me in my community. I love to empower people around me to take the reins on bringing their passions into the world. Passion is one of the most powerful forces for change, and I will always be inspired by its depths.
Where did you get your training/certifications? I started my training in yoga at Charm City in Baltimore, MD.

My aerial yoga certification is from Kaya Wellness and Yoga in Rehoboth Beach, DE, and I have taken advanced teaching immersions with Flow Yoga in Washington, DC. I continue to learn from clients and co-workers on a daily basis.
