Dan has always been physically active, playing Rugby, Hockey, Squash, Tennis, Skiing and Triathlon which have taken their toll on his body over the years. He has had ACL knee surgery, Achilles repair surgery, Sports Groin Hernia surgery, 2 broken bones in his back, broken ankle bones, broken ribs and more ripped ligaments than you can imagine. He had resigned himself to arthritis from all the scar tissue until he found Hot Yoga. A friend of his (another rugby player) persuaded him to go to a hot yoga class, something he had never tried before as he never thought it would be for him. After one sessions, although completely knackered not knowing what hit him, he was back for more and hasn’t looked back in 7 years. It has completely changed his life and his body, he now no longer has the aches and pains at the injury sites and he also sleeps far better than he used to, he has a far more energy coupled with a calm and more mindful outlook on life, not to mention the flexibility and strength gained from the physically demanding practice. It has also lengthened his muscles in such a way that running and cycling long distances has become far easier.
Dan feels eternally grateful to have found Hot Yoga and felt the natural step was to offer this wonderful practice to other people. So he chose the path of becoming a Hot Yoga teacher following the Bishnu Ghosh Lineage. Since then he has taught Hot Yoga round the world with his wonderful wife Oriana, his constant inspiration. At the studio in Truro he is the owner and senior teacher and also teaches Pilates, Back Pain Rehabilitation Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Personal Training, Core and Functional training and HIIT classes
