Coffee loving Mat is an Ashtangi at heart. He believes that when people are flexible enough, they are capable of great things. Which is apt because he is a bendy so-and-so…which means he’s always working doubly hard on his strength and stability. And he’ll be making sure you do too!!! Mat discovered yoga back in 1999 when he developed back problems which required surgery and procedures. A friend suggested yoga class so he gave it a go without any real expectations. It wasn’t long before he felt a great improvement in his back, general health and strength and focus. He quickly fell in love with the practice and the rest is history.
