With Kentucky bluegrass roots and a B.S. in Biology, Billy found a world with a blue sea too alluring to ignore. In 2005 with a backpack and a tent, he hopped on a Greyhound bus- thirty eight short hours later, he was standing on the side of US-1 in Stock Island. Wondering what he had one.
After a few days, Billy packed up the tent, rented a room and experienced two hurricanes in as many months. After experiencing the force of nature, and meeting people with personalities as powerful as the storms, Billy had found his new home. With a passion for science, a love of education, a need for informality and constant challenge, Billy found that being a guide and a captain was one of the few things that could keep his attention.
After living on a sailboat with his wife Jennifer, Billy began building a houseboat to accommodate a new addition to the family, their first child Anila.
While Billy has stayed in an ashram while living and traveling in India, his first time doing yoga was on a paddleboard, trust us, this is proof that Yoga at Sea is for anyone that can breathe.
