Lead Anatomy & Physiology Instructor

Dr. Matthew C. Stevens Owner of Pure Physio

We wanted to offer more than just standard poses in our Anatomy and Physiology modules in our Yoga teacher training. That lead us to step outside the world of Yoga to find real medical expertise and knowledge that translates into how we teach yoga postures. Matt brings all of this and more to our training and he is a bit of a Yogi himself! Matt will lead our Anatomy modules with workshop style training that correlates his experience & knowledge to the Yoga practice we teach. We are excited to partner with Matt & Pure Physio Rehab. Recover. Perform.
