CHAD BURRUS

My name is Chad Burrus; the reason and intention for what I do is guided by Powering Unity, Spirituality, Loyalty, Respect, and Friendship. My Sankalpa: I am here to unlock the love, value, and appreciation for one’s mind, body, and spirit through the power of yoga and education.

 I completed my Yoga Teacher Training with CorePowerYoga in the Fall of 2020 with a 200-hour certification in Yoga Teaching, an additional certification in Yoga Sculpt (fitness based yoga), and another certification in Hot Yoga Flow. I began working with Southern Methodist University in the Spring of 2022 and I can not wait to continue leading a variety of classes at Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports.
