Brad Waites is a visiting teacher and one of fewer than 40 teachers worldwide to be certified at the 2,000-hour level by the College of Purna Yoga, and is currently a member of the college faculty. After a career as a partner in a civil-litigation law firm, he began pursuing yoga as a means of self-empowerment and self-fulfillment. Years of study led him to Purna Yoga, which seeks to evolve the consciousness of all humanity. He also holds a professional level teacher’s certificate from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where he lived and taught for several years. Brad leads workshops and classes throughout North America. In addition to a love of anatomy and alignment, he has a special interest in introducing students to the beauty of yoga philosophy and the power of Heartfull Meditation.
