About The Teacher
Everett has been involved in the energetic arts since 1978. His practice began with Hapkido, a Korean martial art that led him to one of his most revered teachers Grand Master Bong Soo Han with whom he studied and had a close relationship with for more than 20 years. Everett taught at the International Hapkido Federation Headquarters in Santa Monica, CA for over 10 Years.
His exploration of Yoga began in 1992 and has been a journey through many traditions such as Tantra, Hatha, Anusara Yoga®, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Taoism and more. His 500RYT study was completed with "Yogarupa" (Rod Stryker) under his branded style of yoga known as Parayoga® and initiated him into the Tantric lineage of "Sri Vidya", the oldest living tradition of yoga existing today. Everett's journey has also been influenced by the mastery of many teachers such as Swami Rama, Panditji Rajmani Tigunait, Gary Krafstow, Yogi Bajan, Dr. Glen Morris and the many gifted masters of the Bihar School of Yoga.
A lifelong fascination by the relationship of fear and the obstacles to success has led to an intensive study through a variety of modalities, including martial arts, yoga and success seminars with Fortune 500 CEO's, former US presidents, and sports and entertainment personalities. His realization: "Many philosophical systems teach us how to embody the traits of success, whereas spiritual systems focus primarily on the achievement of fulfillment. Success does not necessarily lead to fulfillment, but in order to experience fulfillment in this worldly plane we must experience success......We are not just here to transcend suffering nor to enjoy the fruits of our labor; we must also fearlessly add to the tapestry of humanity."

Everett is currently devoting his efforts to the debut of his own synthesis of yoga known as Zuna Yoga®, which he shares through workshops, trainings and retreats internationally.
