Balabhadra went through his 200 hour RYT with teacher Brent Kuecker. Brent started the practice of Anusara Yoga of 2001 when he was introduced to Anusara yoga teacher Desiree Rumbough. This innovative style presented by such a spectacular instructor influenced Brent to commit within the first year to the path of teaching the practice of Yoga, and completed his teacher training in 2002. In 2008 Brent entered into Yoga teacher training in the Anusara Yoga method under the instruction of Christina Sell, Darren Rhodes, Noah Maze, and the founder of Anusara Yoga John Friend. Balabhadra is committed to keep true to Brent’s style and instruction.

Balabhadra has been meditating and practicing yoga for 15 years. His yoga training is in Hatha and Vinyassa styles with great emphasis on Anusara yoga. In 2014 he received initiation from his Guru and now goes by the name Balabhadra dasa, which means the servant of the Lord of strength and happiness. As such, his practice is to serve others in building spiritual strength and lasting happiness. Recently married, he has found himself in the midst of a loving and growing BC spiritual community and is thrilled to be a part of it!
