Edward’s journey along the path of yoga began at the end of 2007 where
he happened to stop into a brand new yoga studio called Moksha Yoga in
Toronto's Bloor West Village. He decided to take a class to see if
yoga could serve as an outlet for the stresses he was encountering in
his life – the demands of a hectic career in I.T. , a faltering
marriage, and supporting his father as he fought cancer.

That first class changed his life.

One day after another, for almost three straight months, Edward
attended Moksha Yoga classes – sometimes 2 or 3 in one day – and
discovered that the power of mat and posture was more than just
physical. Edward found deep spiritual renewal and garnered a sense of
mental clarity that enabled him to come to terms with his world around
him. When faced with a life-threatening subdural hematoma injury in
the summer of 2008, Edward sought solace and recovery through yoga and
discovered its ability to assist in the healing process.

Inspired by his practice and the impact of yoga on his life, Edward
attended the Moksha Yoga Teacher Training program in India in February
2010 under the tutelage of Ted Grand, Jess and Deena Robertson and
others, in order to “give back to the studio and those who attend its
classes the wonderful knowledge, wisdom and insightfulness that I had
learned from my own practice”.  Edward has taken his practice further
through attending workshops in 2011 and thanks Jason Crandall and
Rodney Yee for providing additional insights to further his practice.

Edward feels blessed to have the opportunity to teach at the studio
that launched his practice, and not only continues to teach, but
continues to learn through the eyes of a humble student simply
attending a Moksha Yoga class.
