Bob’s passion for yoga started in 2006 when he started taking a weekly yoga class at the YMCA with Bill Thomas - he knew he had found ‘something’. As a weekend warrior type guy, Bob had been reluctant to try yoga; he viewed it simply as ‘exercise’.
It wasn’t until he took out a membership at Windsor’s Downtown Yoga and tried every style of class or workshop Gina Wasserlein’s studio offered, that he realised he was being led toward wanting to practice at a higher level. When Gina and Romano Formicuccia offered the Teacher Training program, he knew it was the right thing to do at the right time. He completely embraced their slogan: When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
Bob truly considers Gina, Romano and Susan Marcaccini to be his yoga mentors. He is honoured to share his love of yoga and its practice with whoever walks into his class.
