Ronnie is not really sure if he found yoga or if yoga found him. As a fitness enthusiast Ronnie found himself in the gym much of his adult life. After suffering the physical pain of muscle tears and arthritic joints, paired with emotional trauma of a divorce, he was searching for something more. In 2008, Ronnie took his first yoga class and the rest is history. Yoga helped him achieve the mental clarity to move on with his life, while allowing his body to stay in shape in a non-destructive way. He’s honored to be able to share his love of the mind and body practice to others looking for peace, happiness and fitness.
