Benjamin has studied with the masters to earn multiple certifications across diverse systems, and believes that the day one stops learning is the day one stops teaching. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA, staffed the Bikram Yoga College of India Teacher Training after receiving his certification, completed the Dharma Mittra Yoga 500 hour Training, two Forrest Yoga Advanced Trainings, and continues his studies in Ayurveda, anatomy, bodywork, and energy healing. Benjamin leads seminars worldwide, facilitates teacher development, and is a sought-after mentor in the international yoga community.
As a competitive athlete who stumbled upon yoga as a last resort to heal, Benjamin recovered from two herniated discs, five knee surgeries and the traumatic suicide of a loved one through consistent yoga practice. He now travels the world inspired to help students practice in healing way and live better through yoga. Benjamin’s ability to connect the poses to your body and the practice to your life in a practical and poetic way empowers students to appreciate the present and develop an action plan to progress. He recognizes that the students do their own work and hopes to help them stay safe and enjoy the process.
