Meet Sebastian.

Since he can remember, nature has been a central part of Sebastian’s life. He was fortunate to grow up in a beach community and spent his childhood in the ocean bodyboarding, surfing, and swimming. He was then able to travel and experience many of the world’s great surf spots as a professional bodyboarder. Through his travel, Sebastian developed a deep love and appreciation for our natural world, and at the same time, he was strongly drawn to the practice of Yoga. The simultaneous genesis of both his deeper and more intimate love of surfing and nature, alongside a growing appreciation for Yoga, only strengthened Sebastian’s connection of mind, body, and world.  

His love for nature led him to a B.A. in Environment and Natural Resource Conservation. He then went on to study at the Prana Yoga Center in La Jolla, California. Sebastian has found that a combination of mindfulness, and yoga practice along with frequent contact with nature can bring a deep inner peace. He recently completed his Master of Arts in Leadership Studies at the University of San Diego and currently lives with his wife Sonya in Encinitas
