Zander’s classes are designed to leave you feeling grounded and empowered - expect to sweat, explore inversions and be challenged all within a traditional meditative framework. Drawing from his intimate relationship with the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition and the teachings of Shri Krishnamacharya, Zander enriches his classes with pranayama, meditation and stories from the history and philosophy of yoga.
The practice helped zander break free from a number of unhealthy habits, including daily abuse of alcohol. Several years of working as a Case Manager for homeless shelters had left him depleted and merely aiming to get through another day. Yoga was part of a reboot plan to ‘live without dead time’ and after just one Vinyasa class he committed to a daily practice. His passion for Yoga integrated long-standing connections to Vajrayana Buddhism, radical environmentalism and an academic background in the philosophy of mind.
Zander is an E-RYT 200 Yoga Alliance registered teacher with over 1000 hours of teaching experience and over 500 hours in training. He is also a certified Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist through the National Ayurvedic Medical Association and holds an MA in Philosophy.
What should students expect from your class? Expect a powerful, Ashtanga-influenced flow with ample opportunity for inversions, balanced by exploration of meditation, pranayama and traditional yoga philosophy.
