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.™
Never say never! I had said in the past how I would never be interested in taking yoga. I had a mental picture of what a yoga student would look like and I wasn’t it. The universe has a sense of humor! I found myself taking my first yoga class in 2005, but only because the spin class was full. As foreign as it seemed then, I truly enjoyed the experience. I attended classes on and off to balance my stressful lifestyle. I started my teaching journey in 2007 after receiving my RYT-200 through YogaFit. I continued learning and earned my RYT-500 through Asheville Yoga Center under the guidance of Stephanie Keach. As time goes by, I have fused different styles into my practice. I love new experiences and sharing them with others. Human nature is to learn from each other. My classes are crafted to the needs of the students in order to make each person feel comfortable and safe. Yoga is an experience that can provide so much if you are open to it.
