As a former football coach at Northern Illinois University with a major in Movement and Sports Science from Purdue University (BA in 1993), and a Masters Degree in Sports Administration from Easter Illinois University (MS in 1995), Sid’s path to healing and inspiring others was destined.
One of his players, Justin McCareins, former player of the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, had injured both of his hamstrings. Under Sid’s guidance, Justin began doing yoga to heal. Inspired by the impact yoga had on his player, Sid began to incorporate yoga as an integral part of his team’s training which led to the team’s first winning season in 23 years.
As Sid developed his own yoga practice, he realized many health benefits such as the disappearance of his asthma which had plagued him for 30 years, as well as a full range of motion in his right ankle that was fused in 1995.
