Gary started his yoga practice in 2000 after sustaining a serious injury. He was 48 years old at the time and after a lifetime of abusing his body through team sports and running, he decided it was time to pursue a more realistic exercise program. For the first year and a half, Gary cultivated a home practice, faithfully doing the Bikram series in various heated bathrooms, garages and attics. Once he found a studio, he jumped into a regular practice, which he continues to this day. Gary became a Bikram Yoga teacher at the teacher training in Palm Desert, CA in 2009 completing his 500 hour certification.
Gary has taught yoga in Sarasota, Northhampton MA., and at all of the Evolation Studios in the Tampa Bay area. He has taught in studios in Milwaukee, Atlanta, Buffalo N.Y., Eastern Kentucky, Santa Barbara California, and Bali, Indonesia.
Gary recently turned 64, and is in the best shape of his life — physically, mentally, and spiritually. He is inspired by the students that make up the Evolation community and loves guiding them along their own yoga journeys toward happiness and wellness. Gary is also Director of teaching at Evolation Tampa and is on the Evolation teacher training senior staff. He has participated in 13 Evolation trainings to date.
