Colin started his Bikram Yoga practice November 2007. Previous to practicing, Colin had severe health problems due to his weight then some older knee and back injuries.
On his search to find something that would help him lose weight while working with his injuries, he found himself at a yoga studio. With a dedicated practice, he was able to drop over 100 pounds, rid himself of knee and back pain, and then improved his overall quality of health.
After experiencing all the amazing benefits of Bikram Yoga, Colin wanted to further his knowledge and give back to the community by teaching. He attended the Fall 2009 session in Las Vegas and has been teaching since then.
His favourite posture out of the series is Spine Twist as it allows him to get into a deeper stretch and work his entire spine. His least posture, however, is Savasana.
The complete stillness and relaxation is a challenge – it is always hard to maintain that stillness and to keep the mind from wandering away from your practice.
Colin delivers a strong class with a teaching style that is direct, focused, and progressive. You may find yourself working a little harder and reaching new depths while in his class. His favourite yoga tip is also on focus. Just lock the knee then pick one point on the mirror and put all your focus there, don’t even blink your eyes!
When Colin isn’t teaching or practicing, he enjoys both drawing and singing karaoke - really.
