Evan was first introduced to yoga through his career in dance. He received his B.A. in Dance from Loyola Marymount University in 2008 and shortly after began his teacher training in his hometown of Berkeley, California. His practice brought him to New York City where he completed his 200hr and additional workshops that focused on anatomy, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. He later moved to North Carolina to deepen his training in yoga therapy with the Asheville Yoga Center. This program refined his skills as a teacher and gave him more tools to assist a broader range of conditions.
