About Me

How I went from physical, emotionally and psychologically broken to helping hundreds of overwhelmed and anxious high performers relieve their stress, quiet their minds, create inner calm, and tap into their natural superpowers…

Before there was The Wellness Dojo, hundreds of happy clients, and 

Warrior Wellness Retreats… 

 

There was a broken young man who was truly struggling through life…

I was 23 years old when almost a dozen doctors told me that they wanted to fuse my neck from the injuries I sustained competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu…

 

That diagnosis magnified my struggle with anxiety with massive panic attacks, insomnia, and I was severely depressed… 

 

I didn’t want to live anymore. 

 

The pain was unbearable.

I was stuck in the darkness with way out…  

 

I was desperate to find a solution. 

 

All I wanted to get back to my active lifestyle and reach my full potential in my chosen path…

 

This is where my wellness journey began…

 

It didn’t take long to fix my physical problems but my psycho-emotional issues of high stress,  anxiety, and depression were a puzzle that I was struggling to solve… 

 

I traveled all over the world learning from people at the top of their fields in the areas of mind, body, heart, and spirit… 

 

I trained with gurus, learned from professors, climbed mountains to find peace, jumped off of bridges to see what could be done…

 

I drank medicine in the jungles of the Amazon and in the basements of Brooklyn… 

 

I studied anything that I thought that would help me fix the issues I was struggling with and boy was there a lot of them… 

 

I meditated, experimented with food and studied Holistic nutrition, I went on journeys through my inner world, cleansing my body of parasites and heavy metals… 

 

After every adventure, period of research, study and practice, my wellness would shift in some way… 

 

The deeper I dove into many topics to try and find THE ONE THING that would help me transform my wellness…  “The Linchpin” of it all…

 

As I did this I would share it with others and the results were hit or miss…

 

Everyone that was coming into my life was dealing with the same thing that I was dealing with…

 

Stress, Anxiety and/or a constant feeling of overwhelm… 

 

I wanted to help them…  

 

I knew I could…

 

The question was could I do it fast and sustainably… Where they kept the results… (as opposed to some psychedelic high where the enlightenment starts to wear off with the substance…)

 

I wanted them to start to enjoy life again sustainability…  

 

I knew I was missing something in my research… 

 

Until my journey took me full circle…

 

“We shall not cease from exploration

And at the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started 

And know the place for the first time”

-T.S Elliot

 

You see my exploration began with studying my breath and breathing patterns… 

 

At that fateful beginning what I didn’t realize was that no matter how many breathing patterns I knew,  as long as my breathing mechanics were broken, I would never have sustainable inner calm.  

 

So once I started to re-pattern my students breathing mechanics everything started to shift, and FAST… 

 

You see, correcting breathing dysfunction is the key to retrain the nervous system to go from Fight/Flight/Freeze/Impulse buy to…

 

REST AND DIGEST… (mmm doesn’t that sound relaxing…)

 

It’s the key to quieting the mind, calming anxiety, improving sleep, relieving inflammation, detoxing the body,  relieving pain in the neck/shoulders/lower back, and once all those things are eradicated from your life…

 

Well then you get to tap into your natural superpowers…

 

Then you get to become unshakeable in the face of chaos,change, and external stress…

I can’t wait to help you go from stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed to quiet your mind,  creating a space of inner calm, and tap into your natural superpowers!

When you do, you’ll be able to share your true gifts with the world and well I get to experience you at your greatest version!  

I’ve helped hundreds of stressed out people just like you quiet their mind, create inner calm, and tap into their natural superpowers…
