Joel DiGirolamo

Joel has a background in personal development beginning with yoga practice at age 14. Having been raised Lutheran he has a background in Christianity with an Eastern bent through the study of Buddhism and Taoism. Joel has studied the methods of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky in a Fourth Way school. Working through personal trauma in his life has forced him to question everything from basic existence to enlightenment. These experiences give him a unique perspective from which to draw the essence of a multitude of teachings and distill them into a simple framework which is accessible to all people.

Joel has a BSEE, an MBA, and a Masters in I/O Psychology plus many years of corporate management and development experience in Fortune 500 companies. Joel is a PEAT processor (energy therapist) and a facilitator of the PRECISION goal attainment process. The confluence of these experiences and education makes him uniquely qualified to work with businesses and individuals in their transformation processes. He is the author of Yoga in No Time at All and Leading Team Alpha, a novel teaching the scientific research on leadership.

Joel is currently teaching Ashtanga and Kundalini yoga by appointment.
