Bill is a lifelong athlete who began practicing Yoga in his twenties as a way to stay healthy while playing sports. After feeling the positive effects of increased awareness, flexibility and strength, he began to study and incorporate yoga classes into his weekly routine.
Today, as a Yoga teacher and studio owner, Bill’s overall philosophy is rooted in the Vinyasa tradition where the practice of yoga is applied to the overall approach to living. One should use the skill and awareness yoga creates in all the foundations and rhythms of life, including health, sports, relationships, work, and personal evolution.
Bill is owner and managing partner of Align Integrative Wellness, LLC. Together, with his sister Savonn they oversee the growth, development and vision of Bernal Yoga, San Francisco, CA and Sellwood Yoga in Portland, OR.
He studied at the Sacred Movement Center for Yoga and Health in Venice, California with Max Strom, Shiva Rea, Saul David Raye and Sherry Brourman, PT. He has a Thai Yoga Therapy Massage certification from the White Lotus Foundation with Saul David Raye.
He lives in Portland, OR with his wife Rosey and daughter Grace. He teaches public Vinyasa and Thai Yoga classes at Sellwood Yoga and at workshops and select retreats worldwide. He can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
