Paul is a senior teacher of pranayama, asana and the meditative art and science of yoga. He has been a dedicated student since the late 1990s of both Sri O.P. Tiwari and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Both of these great teachers have personally certified Paul in these practices, a unique position as the only one to receive this double honor.
Paul continues with mantra practice from the yoga lineage and meditative approaches, influenced by the Thai forest tradition. Paul continues his studies in health, philosophy, anatomy, and physiology. One of his main gifts is to be able to relate the teachings in a very down-to-earth way for the modern seeker. He does not take life or yoga too seriously and as a result the discussions and philosophical sessions are lively and humorous, helping to explain the meaning behind the practices and philosophy.
