Peter started meditating in 2007 with the Kwan Um School of Zen; in 2008 Peter went to live at a residential Zen center to deepen his practice of meditation. It was during this time that Peter discovered yoga. Peter first started out practicing a Kripalu vigorous yoga. The emphasis on the breath, in this style of yoga, and the vigorous practice really resonated with Peter, and he has been developing an Asana practice ever since.
Peter took his 5 precepts with the Kwan Um school of Zen in 2008, his 10 precepts in 2012 and has been a Dharma teacher in training for 3 years.
In 2014 Peter also completed his training with the University of Massachusetts Medical School and now meets the requirements to Facilitate mindfulness Based Stress Reduction classes.
Peter has attained two 200 hour Yoga teacher certifications. One based on many different practices which included Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Flow. Peter’s second 200 hr. training was solely focused on the Ashtanga vinyasa method.
At the present time, Peter’s main practice is Ashtanga vinyasa, but he loves Hot Yoga and has a daily meditation practice.
Peter’s joy in life comes from his Karma Yoga, or the Yoga of service, he volunteers at a local prison and also works with individuals that have suffered from a brain injuries every week to bring these contemplative practices to these and other populations in the community.
David first began his yoga journey shortly after exiting the US Navy. Experiencing both chronic nerve and joint pain throughout his body from rigorous training in the military, while also undergoing severe depression, it was only after the trial and error of numerous therapeutic options did he realize it was his yoga practice which remained the one true constant. The more his physical and psychological pain dissipated, the more he felt compelled to share this tool of healing with the world.
After practicing and learning the Ashtanga yoga method under the guidance of Peter Snyder, a member of the One Heart family, David ventured down to Miami in order to participate in Miami Life Center's 200hr Ashtanga Intensive program with renowned teachers Kino McGregor and Tim Feldmann. It is David's belief that each and every individual can benefit greatly from a consistent yoga practice, and more importantly everyone has the potential to begin this journey today in discovering peace of mind and a renewed vitality. In the words of Sir K. Pattabhi Jois, "Anyone can practice yoga. Young..Old...Except lazy people."
