Born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in Northeast Ohio since preschool, Max has played just about every sport thoroughly putting his body to the test. After playing hockey at John Carroll University, Max found himself in the corporate world in Columbus, Ohio programming websites. When a work store visit brought him to Lululemon for the first time he quickly became intrigued with the benefits/appeal yoga had for athletes, especially hockey players. Taking a posted note with a few suggestions for local yoga studios Max landed at the first one on the list, Thank Yoga, nestled between the heart of the Short North and Ohio State University Campus. Practicing under Studio Owner/Teacher Josie Schweitzer, he says, “The first class whooped Me in the most empowering way.” Being challenged in a completely new way mentally and physically Max left the gym to test yoga’s results fully on his body. Establishing a daily yoga practice Max wished to fully share his passion with others as he found facets of his everyday life improving positively in part to the yoga practice.

After 3 years practicing yoga in Columbus Max was lead back to Cleveland to share his knowledge with his two younger brothers, friends, family, and Community. It was not until six months back that Max embarked on his first yoga teacher training lead by his newest teacher, Diana Vitantonio. Completing the 200-hour Soul Activist YTT led by Diana, Max began teaching full-time and coaching hockey. Half a year later Max completed Cleveland Yoga’s 200-hour YTT lead by Tami Schneider. Compounding his Soul Activist and Baptiste yoga training Max’s classes are infused with prosperity for a stronger future.
