    • Dray Gardner was once crippled by a life-threatening automobile accident and his doctor suggested back surgery, however, Gardner insisted on a more holistic approach. Yoga allowed his mind and body to have brand-new experiences-teaching him balance, discipline, focus, determination, strength, flexibility and peace of mind through meditation. As Dray would say, “You owe you.” Because of his own personal experiences, he believes his purpose is to help others evolve into their best self. It was in learning the science behind yoga and how the practice supports every muscle, tendon, joint and organ down to a cellular level that truly hooked Gardner, leading him to what has now become his life’s work and dharma. Gardner dedicates his time to cultivating unique and transformative yoga experiences and offering his knowledge, strength and commitment to the people of the community.
