Born and raised on a ranch in Oklahoma, Byron grew up believing that simplicity is a key component of happiness. After losing his father at age 17 and experiencing a traumatic spiral of events during his adolescent years, he was introduced to yoga through a friend. It immediately spoke to his physical nature and after only a few classes he felt a strong and deep spiritual connection. He had found his therapy and church.
After practicing a number of years with Bryan Kest and teaching informally, Byron decided to enroll in a 200 hour Power Yoga Alliance Teacher Training. The Vinyasa class he teaches is dynamic and physically rigorous. Although the nature of his classes are physically demanding, his greatest focus is the safety and well being of his students. The four major points he stresses in class are proper alignment, mindfulness of physical limits, deepness of breath, and calmness of mind.
