Instructor Profile

2023 Instructor lineup
Matthew Myro

Matthew Myro is difficult to pin down; counting singer/songwriter, indie-film actor, writer, personal trainer, craft-cocktail bartender, and high-performance coach among his moonlighting activities. Upon earning a Master’s degree in philosophy, cosmology and consciousness from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, Matthew set out on a journey of education and entrepreneurialism. He is a certified Onnit Academy Trainer, 200hr Yoga Alliance Instructor, Reiki Master/Teacher, certified permaculture practitioner, and also started multiple businesses in fields ranging from horticulture to fashion. Currently, his professional days are spent as a canna-tech executive and host of the Edge of Cannabis Medicine podcast.

A lifetime martial artist and Goshen Jitsu black belt, in 2007 Matthew fell in love with the soft art of tai chi and later began a two year apprenticeship under Master Kenn Chase in Marin Co, California. He’s been teaching tai chi and qigong since 2014 and has led workshops at Burning Man, Lightning In a Bottle, Lucidity, Resonance, Domefest and Secret Dreams festivals.

Surrender to the Flow with Tai Chi & Qigong
Surrender to the Flow by learning how to tune into and feel your own Qi (life force energy) and what you can do with it. Traditional tai chi and qigong movements will allow you to harvest cosmic energy and move Qi in, around, and through your body. Connect to the living Tao and find a calm center within the festival shenanigans.
