Edward Truitt is a former professional ballet dancer and currently Associate Professor of Dance at West Texas A&M University. He turned to Yoga as a form of therapy after ankle surgery in 2010, a previous back surgery (1994), and chronic pain due to injuries he sustained as a professional dancer. He found in yoga a process of healing that was not limited to the physical, and the more he explored it the more he wanted to share it with others.

Edward feels gratitude to all his teachers including the yoga teachers he studies with locally, Dawna Muir, Donna Murrah, and all the other great teachers at The Yoga Mat. Edward teachers power vinyasa yoga at The Yoga Mat as well as at WTAMU in the Activities Center. Find Ed on Monday @ 4:00pm or Wednesday @ 7:00pm.
