Don began practicing yoga in 2000 and graduated from the inaugural Moksha Yoga Teacher Training in 2004. In 2007 Don opened the original Moksha Yoga Bloor West location on the north side of Bloor Street. MYBW quickly became a true pillar in the community, hosting several charitable functions and helping to strengthen an already connected community.
MYBW was voted ʻBest in the Cityʼ on the ever-popular social media board BlogTO.com and ʻBest Yoga Studioʼ Readerʼs Choice Award from the Bloor West Villager newspaper three years in a row. Don’s pride shines brightest when he receives Best (Worst) Dad Jokes awarded to him frequently by his two sons. When not teaching, he does his best to connect with his family, which includes a lot of trees.
”I’m not here to teach you, I’m here to Love you. The Love you feel is the teacher.”
