Troy is the Owner and Director of Yoga Teacher Trainings for Peak Beings Yoga. He has directed over 18 Yoga Teacher Trainings and has certified hundreds of new Yoga Teachers from the school of philosophy of the Unified Yoga Teacher Trainings. He is a 500 Hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (500 E-RYT) through the Yoga Alliance. He has taught around the globe full time for over 10 years with over 7,000 hours of teaching yoga classes and directing Yoga Teacher Trainings. Some of the trainings he has attended to acheive the 500 Hour E-RYT certification included a 200 Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga teacher training which explored many styles of yoga and 100 Hour Trainings in Yoga Massage, Hot Power Fusion, Yoga Sculpt, Children’s Yoga and Inner Quest of the Yoga Educator. In 2010 and 2016 he also hosted Fashion One TV’s Model Yoga where he designed and produced a series of shows that focused on the chakras and other balancing and energizing techniques. He is currently based in Los Angeles, California, but has traveled and taught yoga to adults and children in many locations within and outside the U.S., including Costa Rica, Brazil, Norway, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand. Yogi Troy is also trained in Tai Chi Chuan, Reiki, and CranioSacral Energy Work. He teaches a variety of beginner to advanced level classes. He loves to design his classes based on the yogis and yoginis who show up ‘that’ day for ‘that’ class. They have made a choice to be on their mat for a reason so he tries to cover a wide range of postures with a combination of quicker and slower movements. He likes to allow the yoga practitioners in his classes the time and place to really be in ‘their’ yoga and to create the space for their yoga experience.
Yoga found Troy when he was at a crossroads in his life and career working as a project manager and engineer on bridge and highway projects throughout the U.S. He decided to take a break from his career to travel, learn more about yoga and deepen his yoga practice. This decision has led Troy to thousands of hours teaching and training in many amazing places around the world. He is passionate about empowering students and helping them to find a yoga practice that is suitable for them. Yogi Troy is grateful to all of the teachers and students he has encountered on his journey and looks forward to many more. Troy loves to talk with prospective students prior to the training to discuss more about what you can expect to experience during the training. If you would like to speak directly with Troy or are in the Los Angeles area and would like to schedule a private or group yoga session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and he would be happy to set up a time for you to speak with him in person.
