Since Raymond took his first yoga class at a fitness centre in 2005, his passion for yoga grew as the mind and body benefits continuously unfolded through regular practice. Yoga also transformed him from a heavy meat-eater into a vegetarian. Michel Besnard is his first teacher of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. Raymond completed the Yoga Alliance 200-hour Ashtanga Teacher Training with Michel in 2007 and has been committed to exploring all aspects of yoga ever since. Raymond is also grateful to have practised with and learned from Dylan Bernstein, who guided Raymond over 7 years of Ashtanga mysore practice. He taught Raymond how to work respectfully with each student according to their needs using the traditional teachings of the Ashtanga lineage. Raymond has been practising the Mysore style of Ashtanga Yoga every morning since 2007 and assisting in the Mysore classes at PURE Yoga The Centrium since 2008 with various great Mysore teachers. Raymond loves to share his yoga experience and learn from fellow practitioners and students.
