The love of yoga was ignited for Matt yoga after attending a yoga classes in Hamilton Island as preparation to his race in an outrigger canoe in the Hammo Cup. He has always competed in sports and enjoyed the physical side of yoga. When he returned from Hamilton Island he continued taking yoga classes and quickly realised there was more to yoga than just the physical Asana Practice. He knew it was a life long journey.  

In 2012, Matt completed his Yoga Teacher Training under Aura Wellness, Fiona Leard and Power Living in Sydney. He continues his yoga journey learning from world renowned yoga teachers such as Les Leventhal, Tiffany Cruickshank, Simon Park and Simon Borg-Olivier.

His love for yoga and sports does not stop there. Matt is a keen surfer and Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) board instructor.  He combines yoga with SUP when he teaches SUPYoga (Yoga on a Paddleboard) in Port Stephens, New south Wales.

Matt also fell in love with AcroYoga (yoga combined with acrobatics) and in 2014 completed his AcroYoga teacher training, making him a certified AcroYoga teacher.
