E-RYT 500, Bikram, Moksha, Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa,
Doug Swenson's Sadhana Yoga Chi and Jennifer Wolfe's Pre-Natal Pregnancy
Recently mentioned in Yoga Journal's Yoga Buzz blog for his new hot yoga sequence, Revitalize, Mark began his hot yoga journey in 2004 when he took his first Bikram yoga class. Discovering a passion, he completed the fall 2005 Bikram certification and immediately began teaching for Jim Kallet, the creator of Bikram's dialogue, at his Old Town studio in San Diego, California. It was here that Mark was taught the nuances of hot yoga dialogue. Next, he stopped for a few months at Brad Coldwell's Vancouver studio before teaching and eventually managing three Bikram studios in South Korea. During this time he also developed the Korean competitors for the annual World Yoga Championships and was chosen to teach at the Hong Kong studio. In 2008, he moved to Las Vegas and joined Bikram Yoga Southwest, whose owner decided to begin offering a wide variety of classes soon after Mark's arrival. The transition out of Bikram Yoga allowed Mark to expand his knowledge and he has since completed Moksha Yoga, Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa, Doug Swenson's Sadhana Yoga Chi, and Jennifer Wolfe's Pre-Natal Pregnancy trainings. He now runs his own teacher trainings and recently coached the 2012 Nevada Regional Yoga Champion, Sara Larimore. Mark's teaching and teacher trainings are a culmination of these experiences and he is grateful to share his British bulldog determination, energy, dialogue and knowledge with his students every day.
