Introducing Joe Love as a Guest teacher on our retreat. Along with some Amazing Yoga, Joe will also bring Tai Chi/Qi Gong <3 :) Joe Love Formerly a competitive UCLA gymnast, Joe brings 18 years experience as an athlete as well as a natural creativity to his yoga teaching. Having worked through various difficulties and injuries in gymnastics, he believes that when it comes to our practice balance is key. By listening to our bodies, knowing when to strengthen and when to soften, and practicing consistently and eating a balanced diet, we maintain a healthy bodymind and ultimately become what we practice. Joe has studied with a diverse and distinguished mix of teachers the world over including teacher trainings with Saul David Raye, John Friend, and an Advanced 500 Hour with Sri Dharma Mittra in NYC. In 2009, he spent a month in Mysore, India Studying Classical Ashtanga at K. Pattabhi Jois Yoga Institute. A native of Oklahoma with mixed Vietnamese ancestry, Joe brings a fun-spirited, soulful, invigorating flow as well as a keen knowledge of alignment principles to all of his classes. He teaches and leads Vinyasa Flow classes, workshops, and retreats nationally and abroad, and is also a Ba Qua Tai Chi/Qi Gong Instructor, Traditional Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner and CMT.
