Doug originally got introduced to hot yoga 15 years ago and after a couple classes learned that he had a passion and aptitude for it. However many bad life choices led him to quit practicing for nearly a decade. Doug always likes to credit his practice for giving him a new lease on life, suffering from many chronic injuries his physical and mental health had reached a low. Upon rededicating himself to his practice he found the healing properties inherent at Radiant so profound he found himself walking a new path in life combining regular practice, good nutrition and meditation to stay balanced in all the other areas of his life.
Doug enjoys mountain biking, surfng and telling family members that yoga is the cure for everything from insomnia and poor posture to skin conditions and spiritual malaise. Doug has worked in graphic design for nearly 20 years and lives in Costa Mesa with wife and teenage son and hopes to have many more years of fruitful yoga practice and teaching ahead of him.
