Sean served in both the United Kingdom and United States career Fire Services. He was as a career fire-fighter in both the Royal Air Force and Greater Manchester Fire Services. He is certified as both a Florida and Connecticut fire-fighter as well as a Connecticut Fire Officer/ Instructor and EMT. After retiring from the West Haven Fire Department, Sean has transitioned to now serve his fellow Responder community in Connecticut. 

First experiencing Yoga and Mindfulness through the Uniformed Services Program, Sean became particularly interested in mind-body practices that combined the benefit of Eastern wisdom with Western evidence-based research. 

Having completed his 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings as well as Mindful Yoga Therapy, Prison Yoga Project (PYP), Yoga for Recovery (Y-12 SR) and 108 Monkeys Yoga for urban youth and underserved communities training, Sean is particularly grateful for each opportunity to share these practices with others.
