AJ Durand first discovered yoga in 2003 at The Barat Campus of DePaul University where he studied Theatre. Yoga combined with the Alexander Technique for movement first inspired him to study principles of body alignment. His desire to learn and experience the inner workings of the bodymind connection has led him to many mats on many floors. He has studied under the tutelage of Quinn Kearney, Claire Mark, Geri Bleir, and Tom Quinn at Yogaview in Chicago since 2005. He began his focus for alignment oriented and therapeutic yoga in 2010 with Gabriel Halpern. AJ is known most for his sense of humor, playfulness and his genuine enthusiasm while teaching. He creates a casual but focused environment and he encourages you to ask questions, explore various techniques, and work your personal edge. His belief that movement is an outward expression of the inner self helps you experience the transformative benefits of yoga both on and off the mat.
