As a kid Matt Sharpe attempted almost every sport imaginable. As an NCAA Division I athlete he was exposed to almost every training method imaginable. After graduate school Matt found yoga nursing a injury and never looked back. Nothing matched the mental and physical aspects of yoga. Matt uses yoga as a tool to create balance between strengthening and stretching to prepare for whatever life wants to throw into the disco party. YTU was a natural extension to tie together a previous life as an athlete and his 200 hour traditional Yoga Alliance Certification to more fully integrate anatomy and movement into every day life. His classes reflect a mix of traditional principles and poses tied to a strong flow of movement with an easy philosophical approach. Matt is a product manager in Silicon Valley, a traveler, a coffee snob, and an outdoor lover much of which is reflected in his classes.
