Mark was mentioned in Yoga Journal's Yoga Buzz blog for his hot yoga sequence, Revitalize, that became the Trufusion Signature Series. Mark began his hot yoga journey in 2004 when he took his first Bikram yoga class. Discovering a passion, he completed the fall 2005 Bikram certification and immediately began teaching for Jim Kallet, the creator of Bikram's dialogue, at his Old Town studio in San Diego, California. The Old Twon studio was where Mark was taught the nuances of hot yoga dialogue.
Next, he stopped for a few months at Brad Coldwell's Vancouver Bikram studio in Metrotown before teaching and eventually managing three Bikram studios in South Korea. During this time he also developed the Korean competitors for the annual World Yoga Championships and was chosen to teach at a Hong Kong Bikram studio. Other accolades while teaching that lineage, Mark coached the 2012 Nevada Regional Yoga Champion, Sara Larimore, and was one of the coaches who trained the 2013 Nevada Regional Champion, Jennifer Angel.
In 2008, he moved to Las Vegas and joined Bikram Yoga Southwest, whose owner decided to begin offering a wide variety of classes soon after Mark's arrival. The transition out of Bikram Yoga allowed Mark to expand his knowledge and he has since completed a variety of other trainings.
Mark now runs his own teacher trainings as National Yoga Director at Trufusion and is the creator of their yoga program. Since taking that position Mark has helped them franchise. They now have locations across the U.S and have Alex Rodriguez as an investor. Mark now trains trainers in each region to deliver the yoga program he created for the company.
Mark's teaching and teacher trainings are a culmination of these experiences and he is grateful to share his British bulldog determination, energy, dialogue and knowledge with his students every day.
