About Tom Simpkins

…practicing yoga continues to be a deeply transformative process
​.  Tom 
and encourages ​
many adaptive yoga techniques in his class
.  Adaptation, modification and individualization are cornerstones of 
his practice and classes​
. He is deeply honored and surprised to be a veteran Special Education teacher. Thanks to 
​more than half  a century
 of this amazing life
​and support from Michele his wife and better half, 
Tom is 
​honored to learn from
 an ever increasing and amazingly broad spectrum of people. Helping students learn to be their own best teacher (through adaptation, autonomy and ahimsa) is his passion. Exploring the 
00-hour YTT Program with Mark Stephens
​ was both humbling and rewarding.​ 
When not on his mat or at school
 can be found sitting at the piano,
​ playing in the garden, cooking in the kitchen or simply sleeping and soaking on the beach with his wife
