Sid’s path to healing and inspiring others was destined. A former football coach at Northern Illinois University, Sid has a BA in Movement and Sports Science from Purdue University and a Masters in Sports Administration from Eastern Illinois University.

One of Sid’s students, Justin McCareins, former player for the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, had injured both of his hamstrings. Under Sid’s guidance, Justin began practicing Yoga to heal. Inspired by the impact Yoga had on Justin, 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.

Sid first began practicing Yoga to find a way to heal both physically and emotionally. As Sid developed his own Yoga practice, he realized many health benefits such as the disappearance of the asthma which had plagued him for 30 years, as well the return of the full range of motion in his fused right ankle.

Sid credits his parents with inspiring him to move forward and touch so many lives. Growing up with two successful parents, and yogis in their own right, his mother and father's lifestyle practices instilled a foundation from which Sid could freely grow and become a yogi master. "I can... I will... I must..." was the mantra used in the McNairy household. This later became, and has remained, the basis of his studio's mantra.

Sid has also been inspired by teachers and coaches such as Rodney Yee and Baron Baptiste. The sequence that Baron teaches helped guide Sid through the shift that took him from coaching on the field to inspiring people on the mat, and has become the foundation of the flow at Lifeline Power Yoga.

Sid is committed to giving back to the community and continues to participate in year-round philanthropic work benefiting the Baltimore Every Yogi Project.
