Kirk began his yoga practice in 1996 as a way to enhance his other athletic activities. The attraction to yoga deepened, leading him to enroll in the 500-hour teacher training program at the Iygengar Institute of San Francisco, which he completed in 2004.
He is an ERYT and has been teaching mixed level classes, introduction series, workshops and private sessions since 2003. His education continues on a daily basis through his interactions with students and fellow teachers, as well as his personal studies and practice.
Due to his engineering / high tech background, he is drawn to the Iyengar method with its attention to detail and alignment. While that technical approach is present, his classes also incorporate visualization and other yoga styles.
His classes are designed for students of all skill levels with special attention to sequencing, modifications / use of props and customized instruction.
