As the classic story goes, I have managed to replace a habit of drug and alcohol abuse with athletic pursuits, and to seek different peak experiences and natural highs. Climbing and running gradually transformed my life, but with the mindset of constant improvement, I eventually had to face plateaus and injuries, that were rooted in decades of misuse and disuse. Learning to respect my body and to exercise from a point of “being” instead of “becoming” were the two biggest lessons I learned along my natural movement journey. Natural movement and conscious breathing were the missing link, that bound everything together, and served as a foundation for all my physical practices and my approach to fitness. Somewhere in the self-seeking and truth-seeking process I left my field and decided to gear my life towards health and wellness, and the deeper I got into the rabbit hole, the stronger urge I felt to share what I find profound and meaningful. These days I’m on the road pursuing a simple yet fulfilling life and cultivating myself as an educator and as a student alike, with a mission to contribute to the world.

I believe that we all need to find physical means to interact with nature. Traversing wild landscapes awakens deeply coded primal states, and a sense of connectedness to our evolutionary past. It’s a reminder that we are not separate from nature, but we are the same breathing, living entity.
