Prior to becoming a Yoga Teacher, Vance was a Police Officer for more than twenty years and worked for both Ocean City, MD Police and Salisbury, MD Police during his Law Enforcement career. After seeing the physical and mental benefits yoga provided, he decided he want to teach it to others. Throughout his training, Vance was mentored in the Hatha Yoga tradition by Tana Martin (RYT-500). Since that time, he has also completed Warriors at Ease Training, Aerial Yoga Teacher Training and most recently Veterans Yoga Project Mindful Resilience. Vance blends a practice mixed with breath, movement, and mindfulness for an overall feeling of wellbeing. During these sessions students can expect to move, stretch, work of alignment, build strength, and nurture flexibility. He believes that the practice of Yoga is really for anyone and makes his classes fun and accessible to ANY level.
