About The Teacher
Tristan has been practicing yoga since 2012 and teaching since 2016.
After working in corporate America for ten years he started a journey of self-discovery. This led him to yoga, health, and service. He is certified in the classical Sivananda yoga lineage and in restorative yoga. He taught yoga by donation in USA, Mexico, El Salvador, and India.
In 2017 he went to India to deepen his personal yoga practice. He used this time to study classic texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and Light on Life by Iyengar, among others. He was also given the opportunity to teach students in Mumbai, Jaipur, and Om Beach.
His teaching style blends classical and modern yoga. When he is not teaching Sivananda’s “perfect practice” class, he teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Restorative. He often custom-tailors each class based on the unique blend of attendees. He takes the time to get to know each student. Everybody gets something valuable out of his classes.
He believes in helping people identify their true values. He believes in living a more authentic life. He wants to share what he found. He started Shanti Yoga for these reasons.
