TEACHER TRAINING FACULTY:
Max Twogood– Lead Trainer
Max has been teaching yoga since 2013, when he completed his 200 hour training in San Diego. He teaches a variety of styles including vinyasa, hot, and yin, aside from a variety of other fitness classes.

What started as a very physical practice overtime manifested into a mental and spiritual practice as well. Max creates classes that are energetic and accessible to everyone in the room, regardless of experience, focused on strengthening our bodies and our awareness.
