Ben studied with the Traditional Yoga Association whose objective is to preserve and promote a wide range of ancient yoga practices. These practices include asanas (physical postures) and pranayama (breathing), and in addition Ben’s classes are tailored to a holistic approach which includes vinyasa (flowing movement), mudras (hand symbols), as well as exercises in meditation and mindfulness.
Using other approaches such as chanting, massage, sound work, dynamic meditation, music, reflective silence and more, Ben’s classes are truly holistic.

As a qualified and experienced teacher, Ben really does offer a safe and complete class for all levels of experience.
