As part of the Pure Yoga senior teaching team, Copper has been and continues to be a pillar in the yoga community throughout Asia.
Originally from Texas, USA, Copper was first introduced to yoga at age four by his father and martial art teachers. He fully committed to teaching ‘Yoga’ in 2003, after resigning as a Senior Training Specialist for Charles Schwab, a leading US Fortune 500 company.
Copper holds the highest qualification possible with Yoga Alliance, E-RYT 500, in addition to professional training certifications with Achieve Global, Development Dimensions International (DDI), and Mager Consortium.
Copper has been leading professional development courses and yoga teacher trainings since 2000. He is the lead hot yoga trainer for Pure Yoga Singapore, developing and leading their Hot TT programmes since 2009. Beyond hot yoga, Copper also leads trainings in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Universal Yoga.
His playfulness and joy are present in every class, workshop, or teacher training session that he leads. Whether in the hot room, on the cross mats of Universal Yoga Mandala, or any mat in between, Copper encourages students to explore their practice and themselves as deeply as possible.
“Whether it’s physical, mental, emotional or spiritual – yoga has something for everyone, at every stage of life’s journey. Every passing moment is an opportunity to start anew and transform your life. Let go of expectations, have fun, and enjoy the process!”
