Brian Matzke

About The Teacher

Brian Matzke began his yoga journey at a very young age with Siddha yoga. Having a background in college athletics and being educated in the health field, he brings a well rounded knowledge to his practice and teaching. He started his asana practice with Bikram yoga and then evolved to the Barkan method. Being a native of New Orleans but spending the majority of his time in New Mexico, Brian’s classes are infused with so much love. He says his heart is touched by all styles of yoga so he wants to share his heart with his students.

His first teaching experience began in Puerto Rico and his education has been influenced by Jimmy Barkan, Pradeep Teotia, Sean Corn, Johnny Kest, and Rolf Gates, and many more. As Brian always says ‘our teachers are everywhere’, Brian travels to teacher trainings and workshops worldwide with a never-ending thirst for knowledge to share with his students. Students say after a class with Brian, they walk out with this feeling of deep spiritual connection. His classes will invigorate you with his Yang energy and ground you with his Yin flow. He works as a fire fighter and spends a great deal of time traveling the world and practicing his yoga off the mat.
