After fifteen years climbing the corporate ladder in the clothing retail, Walter chose to commit his energies and life to be “in-service” to others. With 7 years of personal yoga practice at that point, he took the yogic path a step further by completing a 200hr Anusara, B.K.S. Iyengar and Kripalu influenced Yoga Teacher Training lead by Christy Burnette and Rhoda Miriam in 2009, and in 2010-2011 he completed a 500hr certification.
Since graduation, Walter has been teaching regular yoga classes, offering private therapeutic yoga, volunteered with various organizations as an Outreach Director with a nationwide non-profit, as well as working daily to show love, awareness and compassion. With several thousands of hours and over a decade of teaching under his belt, Walter continues to look for more opportunities to make a positive impact within the world and communities. In one such way, he has organized and implemented outreach programs offering yoga as well as various volunteer opportunities to the Boys & Girls Club of Scottsdale, AZ, domestic violence shelters, facilities for the developmentally-challenged, and many more. Adding yoga to his life has solidified the commitment to be “in-service” as a healer; additionally Walter has twenty years of experience as a Reiki Master. Walter’s continuing goals are to teach and heal by being proactive, thereby positively and passionately making a healthy impact within the world.
