Dean Hollingsworth RYT 200
Dean Hollingsworth (Mahadev) is a yoga instructor, recovered addict and father of three who has devoted his life and energy to helping others receive the gifts that come from these practices. Finding spiritual freedom came to him through looking within via the 12 steps and his path then spread outward and broadened through his yoga practice, as well as through diet and fitness. His love for people, desire to serve and commitment to growth are apparent to all that meet him and his purpose here is to pass on these things to others who have a desire and need for similar progress.
