Peter first discovered the practice of Yoga in 2018 when returning to Australia after travelling the world whilst based in North America. Whilst competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu he sustained an injury that would put him on the long road to recovery. Discontent with his rehabilitation progress, he was drawn to yoga. Peter stepped into Zenko’s Men’s Health Month with an expectation that was immediately turned upside down, realising the profound depth found within the Asana.
In 2019 Peter travelled to Peru to attend a Plant Medicine Retreat based in the Amazonian Rainforest. It was here he first encountered the profound knowledge that was to be found on the mat, sensing the beautiful parallels of plant medicine and the wisdom with Yoga. Ultimately leading him back to the sacred practice.
Upon returning home, Peter allowed his heart to lead the way. He quit his job as an Electrician to purse his dreams of studying Holistic Health full-time & completing his YTT 200hrs becoming a qualified Yoga Teacher. Peter remains a devoted student of the practice, embracing opportunities to further his knowledge and give back to the community by sharing the ancient wisdom of Yoga.
