Steve came to yoga late in life, after doctors had told him he needed hip and knee-replacement surgery. He was in pain, overweight, and smoked heavily. His introduction to yoga was in a class taught at a gym, but he quickly sought out more experienced teachers. Within a few months he began his studies in Rishikesh, India at the Vinyasa Yoga Federation, home of Power Flows. Steve trained in classic Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Iyengar style yoga. After teaching for two years, he returned to Rishikesh to the Association for Yoga and Meditation.
Julie came to yoga as a successful academic but with a broken heart and broken body. She shifted her interests from Ancient History to the body in 2017 when she took a sabbatical. She traveled to the home of yoga, Rishikesh, India, to earn her RYT-200 at the prestigious Vinyasa Yoga Academy. Her own pain and weakness led her to next investigate yoga therapy. She studied intensively with Dr. Sumit Sharma, a renowned physiotherapist at the Nirmal Yoga Wellness Academy. She also studied Marma Massage with Rajendra Ray at the Marma Healing Garden.
