Condor was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and was raised in Colombia, South America. A former professional dancer, teacher and choreographer, Condor danced on Broadway and toured in Europe and the United States. He danced in various ballet and modern dance companies and has performed in themes parks abroad and in Orlando, Florida. Condor attended Saint Mary’s College of California Liberal Arts — Performing Arts program.

He discovered a passion for fitness and wellness early on, as did his spiritual journey. In his early teens on a layover while traveling abroad, a monk approached him and gave him a copy of the Bhagavad Gita. He was immediately attracted to the images on the cover, and even more so at the sight of the peaceful and serene monk, with barely any possessions, humbly walking about the airport.

Condor’s leadership skills were honed in during his tenure in the top fitness brand of the United States, Equinox. He was a top tier trainer and was promoted to Fitness Training Manager and a Personal Training Manager both in New York City and Los Angeles, coaching and developing the personal training staff.

Having had the great fortune to study with a third generation Qigong master, a natural therapy healer, an acupressurist, a doctor of kinesiology and biomechanics, and many wonderful yoga, pranayama, and meditation teachers, Condor fuses 25 years of fitness and wellness into his classes and in his role as manager of the Oasis Wellness Center. He holds various holistic certifications and is a 500-hour certified instructor through YogaWorks.

Condor’s mission is to create a safe, nurturing, and welcoming inclusive environment for all to learn, transform, and cultivate wellness.
