Certified Yoga Instructor
Before practicing yoga Blake experienced fear and a lack of self-confidence – addiction to drugs and alcohol took him over. He was caught in a vicious cycle that stemmed from dysfunctional thinking. Expectations of people, places and things ruled his life. Yoga has taught him that the change has to occur within, not somewhere out there. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Making positive changes can be uncomfortable, but always worth it. He was introduced to yoga in rehab – He reluctantly showed up only because he was out of ideas. He returned to his mat again and again, and began to discover qualities within him he didn’t know existed, or that he had long forgotten. Through stillness and breath, compassion, patience, acceptance and love began to take him over. He returns to his mat to deepen his connection with this process of uncovering, discovering and discarding all that isn’t him, so that he can live happily and teach others how to connect with this beautiful gift that has been given to him. Join him in finding freedom through surrender!

Men's Spiritual Counselor
Bud helps men at any age and stage:
- Create clarity about what's important
- Take action toward meaningful goals
- Keep on track daily and weekly
Every day he pursues his aspirational goal to be a great steward of his life, his time, and his talents.
This means he pursues his spiritual life and development with the same tenacity and discipline as his distance running.
He'lI passes on to others what has been passed on to him. He pursues and invests in emerging leaders. And he loves working with people at any age and stage.
As a Pastor in mega and small churches, a business leader, and as a husband and a friend he leverages his influence to help people:
- Live with purpose
- Navigate life's transitions
- Renew passion for life
- Restore spiritual momentum
His wife is his best friend and without the sustained pursuit of his heart by God he would have taken the low road in life.
