What is your favorite hike in Los Angeles?
When I'm not practicing or teaching yoga I like to stay active. I run, swim, cycle, hike, cross fit and anything else that makes me sweat. I love spending time with my three awesome dogs, who are also big runnners. We like to hike in Debs Park because its big with so much to see and never crowded.
Steven is an Echo Park native. Born and raised here, his teaching style reflects the LA lifestyle: equal parts relaxing and adventurous. As someone who practices many different styles of yoga, he loves to keep classes fun and challenging by incorporating those styles into his teachings. His motto is Sapere Aude or Dare to Know. He believes that by keeping an open heart and mind you will never stop growing. Always looking for new ways to push himself, Steven found yoga. After it changed his life by connecting him to his more spiritual self, he became eager to share his passion with the rest of the world. He teaches that yoga, although an amazingly effective physical activity, is in reality so much more. When he is not teaching he remains very active. Steve is an avid runner, cyclist, as well as personal trainer and believes in healthy living through physical fitness.
