Robert Bill Jr

Robert had what you’d typically call what we perceive to be a happy and successful life. He a “good job”, was earning money & had a fancy title, but quickly learned a hard lesson:: You can have all the “trappings”
of success, but if you’re not taking care of yourself, it’s not possible to take care of anyone or anything
else.

Operating in a high demand & high-intensity work-environment while attempting to stay connected with family and friends. He was
struggling with achy joints & stiff muscles, anxiety and flights of panic, disconnection from his wife and family, high-blood pressure, and a nagging misalignment between who his workplace and society wanted him to be, and who he truly was on the inside.

So Robert decided to make a change in his life and follow a journey of mindful practice, where her now teaches yoga, strength and mindful practice to others and especially men through his Men’s Yoga Transformation program.
