A certified registered Hatha Yoga teacher with over 200 hours of training (RYT-200) with Rasika Yoga School (City Yoga of Columbia), Jeff began practicing yoga 15 years ago to help keep his body and mind in good physical condition while in recovery. After receiving the therapeutic benefits of yoga and becoming more grounded in all areas of his life, he was convinced that transformation through yoga is not only possible but also empowering and enjoyable.
Jeff believes that yoga is most beneficial when applied to practical, everyday life experiences. This philosophy means he presents his classes in a way that best serves his students and simplifies a seemingly complicated practice. He offers a challenging yet accessible yoga class that is infused with philosophy, breathing, anatomy and alignment. He is continually growing both as a teacher and a student. His training is ongoing and constantly evolving. His dedication and passion for yoga allows him to continually grow while sharing all of his knowledge and enthusiasm with his students.
Heal Your Body. Heal Your Soul.™
Yoga refers to it as “prana”. Chinese practices refer to it as “chi”. Even Star Wars refers to it as “the force.” Whatever you choose to call it, it’s ENERGY!
This class practices foundational yoga poses and transitions in dynamic sequences while incorporating energy work. The progression of movements and accompanying breath patterns lead to increased energy and awareness. The Chinese practices of Qigong & Tai Chi are often woven throughout the asanas, creating a seamless flow of movements, amplifying the benefits of the practice, and even achieving a meditative nature.
