Benjamin first came to Yoga at the age of 19 and immediately fell in love with the practice. At age 21 he moved to Tamil Nadu, India and spent six months immersed in Vedic studies and classical Hatha Yoga. Since his early twenties he has studied Yoga in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar. In 2013 Benjamin graduated from The Yoga Room’s 500 hour teacher training program. His primary teacher is Mary Lou Weprin, a certified Iyengar teacher and director of the Yoga Room’s Advanced Studies program. He also draws inspiration for his practice and teaching from Donald Moyer and Elise Miller. He is certified as an Elise Browning Miller Yoga for Scoliosis Teacher Trainer. Benjamin seeks to find the intricacies within every asana and believes even the most elementary of postures has the ability to transform your mind. He strives to create a practice accessible to all bodies, using refined instruction, partner work, artful sequencing, and props. Everyone in a body can experience the joy that is Yoga!
