Teacher, Martial Artist, Healer
Matthew Cohen is the co-founder of Legendary Disciplines and founder of Sacred Energy Arts, a multidisciplinary approach to health and self-development.
“At the age of 5, I found my brother Scott’s yoga book and from that moment on, something in me awakened – I was on a journey of self-discovery. Later, at age 12, I started a lifelong love affair with Martial Arts which led me into dance, qigong, shamanism and healing therapies. I have been blessed to train with true legends in each of these fields and I have been teaching what I know to be valuable for over 30 years. My practice has allowed me to share with people from all walks of life in over 15 countries.
I love the intersection of the ancient and cutting edge, I love moving from the secular to the sacred, and I love helping people find their original medicine – what they were born to do – and how to cultivate and regulate more energy so they can live a most authentic life.”
