The Samurai Yogi, Joe (a military veteran) has had a lifelong obsession with martial arts but trying yoga took some convincing. Peer pressure from his first NYC friend, Tara Stiles, led to Joe becoming a regular at Strala’s first location and joining the inaugural teacher certification class. A bit of a goofball, you know he’s leading a class by his signature giggle and his irreverent approach to life itself.
His classes blend samurai teachings on focus and breathing with Strala’s signature approachable yoga leadership. The quintessential peaceful warrior.
