  • I started seeing Kevin during a particularly difficult transition in my health journey and I’m incredibly grateful to have his support.  Kevin has always been kind, caring, and compassionate, creating a safe and nurturing environment, and is often able to give me the support and reassurance that I am not able to get through the health care system. I trust Kevin immensely and appreciate the support net he created for me through both acupuncture and yoga. He has become a key and critical member within my health support system and I am eternally grateful to have his services available to me.

  • I participated in Kevin's Restorative class at Radiantly Alive and was immersed in relaxation and inner journey as he guided the class through the experience. I experienced release from both stress and blocked emotions and I would warmly recommend it to those looking for healing.

  • The first time I ever felt home in a yoga class was with Kevin. He has been a pivotal teacher in my life and his one-on-one mentorship has helped me connect with the deepest, most inner part of myself longing for meaning. Through getting to know me, Kevin shared his knowledge and experience with me in ways that felt so intentional and resonated with my soul. He helped me come out of my head and into my body - With our sessions, it was never about knowing something, it was about feeling it. I can feel qi/prana in my body, I can tune into its movement as I breathe, I can trust it as a life-giving force. This wisdom, and so much more from the mentorship, has held me in times of darkness. Kevin's light will always be a guide for me and I am forever grateful to call him my teacher & friend.

  • Before classes from Kevin, I thought that yoga was just postures or exercise. This is only a part of yoga, not the whole thing... I love listening to Kevin's chanting. His voice is really nice. It makes me feel relaxed and peaceful. It will help me live more mindfully through yoga.

  • I had an amazing time with Kevin learning about yoga and Hinduism. He knows his craft very well, and was very patient and takes time to help me with my flexibility. The secret location was a perfect yoga venue and the food was great! The water purification was totally new to me but Kevin explained the rituals and practices fervently. It wasn’t crowded at all so perfect for those avoiding it. Will definitely recommend Kevin to friends and family.
