If one advances confidently
in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life
which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success
unexpected in common hours.
– Henry David Thoreau
By stepping into the unknown with confident uncertainty, Ross has been utterly blessed to discover what Life has to offer…
Ross is a curious creature…curious about all things philosophical, spiritual, religious, ancient, modern, and scientific. In short, Ross is in pursuit of Wisdom, Truth, Light, and Love. His relentless pursuit led him to receive degrees in Philosophy and Religious Studies from IUPUI, where he received several honors including being name a Top 100 student, and the Rowland A. Sherrill Outstanding Religious Studies Student Award. During his time at IUPUI, he was exposed to Wisdom from all over the World and all throughout Time. While pursuing his degrees in Philosophy and Religious Studies, he was continually asked by friends and family…”What do you plan do with those degrees?? What kind of job can you get with those?” Until 2008, Ross had no idea…he just knew it was what he Loved!
In 2008, he and Jenni Keith knew what they had to do…Serve and Love our fellow travelers by opening Evolutions @ Yoga!
Having only studied the philosophy and texts of India, Ross had never actually practiced yoga until Evolutions was born. His practice began with pain, frustration, and struggle because his body had deteriorated from his pique physique he once knew in High School as a competitive swimmer. Ross had to overcome several obstacles as he began his practice including sciatica, spinal misalignment, extremely tight muscles, and an undisciplined mind.
Once Ross began to experience the amazing benefits yoga had to offer, he was hooked!! Not only do the vast teachings and texts of yoga satiate his curious nature, but also the practice changed his Life for the better. He found, in yoga, a path that allowed him to teach and help others grow in their understanding of their World, Body, Mind, Being, and Selves.
Yoga is a path of personal exploration and discovery towards your fullest potential as a Human Being. Ross understands now that he has been charged with the duty to help others discover and realize their potential. To Ross, yoga is more than mere physical exercise. Yoga has been preserved for thousands of years because it is a gift to Humanity…especially in our Time.
Join Ross, and together discover our potentials to Evolve, Love, and Shine the World into the Light!
Peace, AUM SHANTI
