Mark began his yoga journey in 2010 when he took his first yoga classes at a Los Angeles YMCA. He immediately fell in love with the practice, and completed his 200-hour yoga teacher training at Loyola Marymount University in 2013. In that training, Mark was introduced to yoga philosophy and spirituality and began studying the Patanjali yoga sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and other yoga texts. As part of this study, he received a certificate from Loyola Marymount in Yoga Philosophy in 2022.
Mark moved to Annapolis in 2017 and joined Blue Lotus Yoga Studio shortly after and has continued his yoga practice there, where in 2022, he completed his 300 hour yoga teacher training.
A recurring theme of Mark’s yoga practice and studies has been the great teachers and fellow students he has encountered along the way, and he is happy to be practicing with the great group of teachers and students at Blue Lotus.
