ted mcdonald

As well as being a yoga instructor and personal trainer, Ted McDonald is indeed a businessman, philanthropist, and all-around adventurer. He was an athlete since he was a child, competing in adventure races and playing lacrosse at UCLA.

The yoga and meditation teacher started teaching meditation and yoga over a decade ago, and he continues to contend in marathons, triathlons as well as trail and ultra marathons. In order to help students improve their flexibility, strength, and concentration, he uses a combination of Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga techniques in his classes.

Aside from meditation, he teaches a type of yoga known as yin or restorative yoga, which is meant to lengthen soft tissue, reduce the risk of injury, and open the body's energetic pathways.

He is the founding member of Adventure Yoga Retreats, a business that organizes high-end travel experiences that enrich people's lives and inspire them to live their lives to the fullest.

Because of his wide range of experience and expertise, his instruction and retreats can be tailored for any audience, from athletes to business executives to yoga teachers. In Malibu, California, he is the proud owner of 5 Point Yoga, a premier yoga and fitness center.

A co-creator of Tony Horton's p90x2 yoga DVD, Ted also appears in p90x3 yoga, as well as in the Isometrix and Tony's one-on-one video series, both of which feature Ted as a yoga "expert."

Yoga instructor for the Tour de France champion BMC Racing Team and longtime Lululemon ambassador.

On, he has been featured as a featured teacher, and his yoga curriculum at The Ranch at Live Oak Malibu was named one of the best in the world in 2012 and 2013.
