Tony G’s devotion to the path of Yoga and movement fills his classes with both knowledge and intensity while his big heart lends sweetness and compassion. He pulls inspiration from his diverse background in the music industry, as a visual artist, and from his years of study of Yoga, movement and meditation. Teaching, studying and practicing yoga for the last 15+ years, it is his desire to weave biomechanics and theory into his classes to take people on both an inner and outer journey. Tony’s love for alignment guides his classes and he wants the students to not only feel great after a class but also give them tools to take on their way. Tony is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 registered yoga teacher, FRC® Mobility Specialist (FRCms) and also teaches Foundation Training™.
In 2011 Tony was offered an amazing opportunity to become a co-owner of Yoga at the Raven, a beautiful sanctuary located in Silver Lake. The Raven is Tony’s platform to create, share and expand his hearts’ vision and to inspire others to do the same. Prior to that, Tony taught public classes at several studios in Los Angeles, including Exhale and Yoga Collective in Venice Beach, Mission Street Yoga in Pasadena and Still Yoga in Silver Lake.
Tony is the creator of Yoga Elementals™ and founder of Meditate Study Practice (MSP)™ - a program designed to be accessible to students and teachers of all levels and life paths. Tony leads monthly workshops and 200 and 300-hour teacher trainings, in Los Angeles and abroad.
