Yoga surprised me.
I never went looking for yoga, and I never thought it would find me. I’m an athlete at heart—I thrive on challenge and competition. I grew up tackling sports from martial arts to baseball to badminton.
But when my wife, Lizl Fleury, first exposed me to yoga, I found in it a new kind of challenge, something totally different from the rigid drills and exercise of my past. I began to feel the positive effects of yoga not just in my body, but in my whole way of life.
Now I honour my old love of athletics by volunteering with community sports, and my newfound love of yoga by helping my wife fulfill the dream of building a yoga studio.
