It was through a severe spinal injury, which ended his professional dance career, that Anthony discovered the world of yoga. The main part of his rehabilitation was through yoga, thus avoiding the need for surgery. After developing a dedicated Bikram practice, Anthony began to benefit immensely from many of the healing qualities that come with deep self-exploration. Having a quieter mind, a healthier body, and greater control of his emotions and management of life’s beautiful chaos all sparked a fire within him. His newfound control of body and mind were intoxicating.
Upon moving to south Florida, Anthony knew it was time to commit to a new path and make his dream of teaching yoga a reality. Training with the well renowned Jimmy Barkan of The Barkan method, Anthony received his 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification. Four years later, he continues to cultivate a beginner’s mind and actively seeks out yogic knowledge and philosophies. Most recently, Anthony finished his second 200-hour training in Iyengar based Vinyasa at Yoga Palm Beach with the extraordinary Karen Burnett, who has had the most profound impact on his yoga journey to date.
His passion to help others find and define their personal journey through yoga is what motivates him to show up to each class open-hearted and fully present.
