When we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. When we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. It is our gift to others to heal ourselves. ~ Max Strom

Many of you know him from his inspiring book, A Life Worth Breathing, which is now published in five languages, and his recent book, There is No APP for Happiness. In 2006, the increasing demand for his work caused him to take his system beyond his yoga center in Los Angeles to people of many faiths and nationalities around the world every year.
As a result, Max Strom has become a new voice of personal transformation. His system, Inner Axis, is a system of field-tested techniques that are a synthesis of yoga, qi gong, and movement therapy. But his teachings are not limited by contemporary yoga culture, and instead they are known to reach the heart of people from all walks of life.
His lectures include a philosophy for real world living, and personal growth that is meaningful to both the student and their family. A dynamic speaker, he has presented three TEDx events, a keynote speech on ethics in business at a Fortune 500 Corporation, and a talk at The Singularity University, and most recently at the first Wellness Symposium in Saudi Arabia.
You can see more of his work on his DVDs, Learn to Breathe, to heal yourself and your relationships, and Max Strom Yoga – Strength, Grace, Healing. Max has been leading teacher trainings since 2000.
