For Levi, true yoga resides in the breath. It’s the difference between simply stretching and opening a channel to profound realization.

That channel has expanded considerably since he first experienced it while he was a breakdancer. From a trickle, it’s become a stream, and now a full-fledged river. Perhaps the biggest single influence was his first yoga teacher training, in Sedona, Arizona, in 2007, when he stopped eating meat and sugar, drinking alcohol and caffeine, and using drugs.

Following that training, Levi lived with a shaman in Sedona for a couple of months, then moved to Portland to live in all-male spiritual community named The Men’s Vision House, where he taught yoga and studied pranayama, meditation, and Iyengar restorative yoga. By this time, the narrow channel he’d originally opened was becoming a rushing torrent.

It was during the five years he lived in The Men’s Vision House that he visited Guatemala to deepen his yoga and shamanic studies, and also India to study with his teacher, Tiwari. At the same time as his love of yoga was flowing more and more powerfully, it was being joined by growing tributaries of astrology and breathwork.

Levi first became interested in astrology as a child, when he studied the moon cycles on his dad’s day planner, but it was only when he discovered shamanic astrology that he felt that total sense of rightness that only comes when something is in full alignment with our highest values. He now holds an Associates Degree in Shamanic Astrology and serves on the board of directors of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School.

Continuing his love of the breath Levi then dove into breathwork. After meeting his Teacher Linda Star Wolf he took initiation and is now a level 2 Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator and Ordained Shamanic Minister.

More recently, as he’s combined his love of yoga and astrology with breathwork, it feels as if those three rivers are flowing together to become a great ocean, with the support of other disciplines such as leading cacao ceremonies. All of them, of course, underpinned by the breath.

Levi was one of my facilitators as I was going through my 200 hr teacher training. As someone who was very new to yoga Levi was a great role model. He really lived his beliefs which was incredibly inspiring. He was a phenomenal yoga teacher, always down to play around with different postures and never took himself too seriously. His background with hip hop dance has given him amazing strength and control and it's very apparent in challenging asanas. He's always willing to share what he knows and work with you one on one. A great teacher!

I had the privilege of being taught by Levi during my 200hr teacher training in Bali, 2013. Levi is one of the loveliest and most down to earth people I have ever met. He is strong in his practice and strong in his spirituality. I don't think one could really ask more of a teacher?
Levi's technique and strength are second to none and he makes it look so easy.
He is encouraging, infinitely knowledgeable and he instructs by demonstration and word of mouth which allows you to master your own body and find the alignment naturally. He is an inspiration and one of those people it's simply a pleasure to be in the company of.

hip hop yoga!

I had the pleasure and privilege of attending Levi's hip hop yoga workshop at Beyond Yoga Alabang, Philippines. Levi is extremely personable, approachable and very attune to and aware of his class and the students needs. I immediately felt at ease in his lighthearted presence and had a smile on my face during the entire workshop. His versatile teaching techniques mix fun and flow for an incredibly dynamic experience. He is extremely humble and you can tell and feel that his teaching and practice is a sincere pursuit to spread love, joy, health and happiness. I highly recommend his classes and workshops and can't wait to take more soon!

Levi has a great smile and a chill attitude that makes everything he teaches loads of fun. his terrific sense of flow makes even challenging moves seem like a snap. It is great that he has been able to travel and explore the world fulfilling his adventurous spirit and lifelong quest for knowledge and learning. he brings this experience to his teaching. Levi is an inspiration. I was lucky to be able to take his class at Portland Community college.
