A former three-sport NCAA athlete and coach, Billy Strean earned a Ph.D. in sport and exercise psychology from the University of Illinois. Dr. Strean is also a Master Somatic Coach (Strozzi Institute), Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-500), a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, and a Certified Professional Co-active Coach.
