Steve Wolf, E-RYT 500 first discovered both yoga and martial arts as a child and has now been actively teaching in the mind/body field for over three decades. His earliest yoga teacher was his aunt who had studied yoga in Brazil, and he later practiced for six years with IYT Yoga instructor Jackie Novak, who also mentored him during his early days as a teacher. Now holding two advanced teacher designations with the National Yoga Alliance, Steve practices primarily in the Pranakria Yoga tradition under the guidance of master teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll, Dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga.
Steve is the founder of Awase Publishing and author of two yoga/nidra meditation CDs, ‘Relax Deeply’ and ‘Sleep & Breathe Deeply,’ plus a recent DVD release, ‘Discovering Chair Yoga.’ ‘Relax Deeply’ is currently being used as part of the pre-op routine for cancer patients at the Johns Hopkins, Weinberg Cancer Center, and it has been used by the Walter Reed Army Medical Center to treat returning war vets. A third CD, ‘Yoga Nidra for Kids Of All Ages,’ was produced in collaboration with yoga teacher and studio owner, Emily Gretz.
Steve is also on the teaching staff for Crofton Yoga in Crofton Maryland, Pure Prana Yoga in Alexandria Virginia, and has been conducting classes for Maryland Parks Recreation since the mid 1980s. He also taught the martial art of Aikido to the US Marines at the 8th & I St. barracks in Washington DC, and he is now head instructor at Northern Virginia Ki Aikido. For over 40 years he has also been a professional musician performing throughout the U.S. and Europe. Visit Steve on the web at: traditionsinmovement.com & awasepublishing.com
