A yoga teacher in New York City and trained personally by Pattabhi Jois, Joe has taught teacher trainings as well as anatomy and physiology for yoga teachers around the U.S. and internationally for more than 10 years. He completed his yoga teacher training at New York’s OM Yoga Center in 2000 and taught there for 15 years. A lifelong interest in biology and anatomy led Joe to study with anatomy teachers such as Leslie Kaminoff, Amy Matthews, Tom Myers and Gil Hedley, and eventually to a Master’s degree in applied physiology from Columbia University. In addition, he is a certified Feldenkrais practitioner and has studied Sanskrit with Swami Prabuddhananda Saraswati.
In his spare time, Joe writes extensively about yoga, anatomy, physiology and health for several websites and print publications including Yoga Journal.
