Jon talks with Yoga teacher and Owner of Red Lotus Yoga about how important the power of our breathe can be and how to get back to center in a crisis.
Brian Granader’s first yoga class came during a time in his life when he was working seven days a week as a residential Realtor. He was in the top 1% of all Realtors in the Century 21 System and in the top 1.5% of the Realtors locally. Brian was helping a lot of people purchase and sell homes and felt like he was killing himself without knowing how to stop.
After practicing yoga for about a year, he took a teacher training program to deepen his practice and knowledge. Brian enjoyed it so much, he began teaching part time and selling real estate full time. One day Brian asked himself, “If I had only six months left to live would I rather be a Realtor or a Yoga instructor?” That day he decided to teach yoga full time and transition out of real estate….he never looked back!
Brian has owned Red Lotus Yoga since 2003 and has been teaching classes, leading teacher training programs, retreats, workshops. He regularly gives talks and lead mindfulness classes at major corporations.
Brian’s wife, Kate, and he run Red Lotus Yoga while caring for their daughter, who was born in 2010. They have a full life and if he asked himself today, the same question he asked in 2002, his answer is still, to be a Yoga Teacher…and he’d add husband and father too:)
