Fred started his yoga practice 9 years ago, hoping it would help his creaky back and sedentary lifestyle. The poses definitely helped, but there was more: feelings of gratitude, balance, and stillness in the face of adversity. After traveling to India in 2019, he was encouraged to enroll in the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program at The Studio Cleveland. In addition to deepening his own practice, he discovered a passion for sharing yoga with others, and considers himself a lifelong student. As a teacher, Fred’s primary goal is to offer a safe space for everyone, wherever they are in their yoga journey. His classes are a combination of effort and ease; definitely invigorating, and hopefully fun! When he’s not teaching, Fred enjoys spending time with his partner Sarah and their pets at their Detroit Shoreway home. Favorite activities are biking, traveling and volunteering in the community.
