Aaron Thomas

Aaron served onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln as an Electronics Technician in the Navy during the Persian Gulf war. After his military service, he opened and managed a successful mortgage company in San Francisco, CA, appearing as the Bay Area Mortgage Expert on KRON Channel 4 and wrote a newspaper column under the byline ‘Ask the Expert’ for the Oakland Tribune. He was selected & hired by large scale mortgage firms to teach all their incoming agents.

His yoga journey began, as many do, with an injury. Upon the recommendation from his physical therapist he began a weekly yoga practice after a serious mountain biking injury. He often says, “Frog pose saved my life”. Since then, he has focused his analytical, scientific, & vocational expertise on yoga, more specifically to the original 26x2 hot yoga sequence. He has worked with all the top researchers working in the field today and has created a one-of-a-kind curriculum for teacher trainees that is unmatched in the industry.

Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for you both. You have taught me so much over the last 8 weeks. You have blown my mind, challenged me beyond limits and given me so much knowledge that I will have forever to keep learning and growing. It is apparent the passion you both possess and I feel so fortunate to have gone through this experience.
