Joseph started practicing Yoga in May 2005. He hasn’t always been very healthy. He was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at a young age, and then at the age of thirteen had a heart attack.

After a long journey of surgeries and medications, Joseph began exploring various forms of exercise.  This is when his life changed and he discovered Bikram Yoga. He found much more than a physical workout. He no longer suffers from constant pain, he lost 50 pounds and developed lean muscle mass.

He can contort his body into positions he never thought possible. He has gained a peace of mind he previously never knew existed. Joseph has transcended many limitations within himself mentally, physically and emotionally. He is accomplishing things he once thought impossible.

Taking his practice to the next level, Joseph began to compete in the Asana Championships. After four years of hard work, in 2009 he placed first in the US and second in the world – now a 3-time National Champion and 2011 Male International Asana Champion. Joseph has learned to focus on the tasks at hand and live in peace with himself and the world around him.

To Joseph this is the gift of yoga. The gift which he has the responsibility to share for the rest of his life. Joseph has toured to over 200 schools nationwide in the U.S. and toured to over 20 + countries.
