Tom Griffith has many interlocking interests and accomplishments that inform his yoga teaching. He graduated from the Yoga on High 200-hour Teacher Training Program in 2005, the same year he received his Ohio State Medical Board license for Massage Therapy. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Art History focused on Buddhist art and philosophy. And he has taken ongoing yoga teacher training with Tim Miller and Richard Freeman—both powerful mimics, storytellers and inspired teachers. His massage practice illuminates his yoga practice by increasing his ability to understand correct physical alignment and biomechanics and the anatomy underlying them. He has taught Ashtanga and alignment-based classes to students of all levels.
