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.

RESPECT THE STUDIO SPACE
NO shoes permitted at any time past the white lobby doors into the studio space. Barefoot is best!
Please arrive at the studio at least 10 minutes before class in order to give yourself time to pay for class if you haven't done so, and/or get settled without delaying the start of class. The early bird catches the good spot!
Please note the studio doors will be locked promptly at the class start time. Students will not be permitted into class once doors are locked, and will be considered a "No-Show." (See Cancellation Policies)
NO cell phone usage during class. Cell phones must be silenced prior to the start of class. (Don't be that guy.) We recommend leaving cell phones in the cubbies provided in the lobby.
RESPECT EACH OTHER
Please keep conversations and voice volume low once in the studio to respect other students attempting to wind down and calm their minds for class. Ya know, read the room.
Conversations should be avoided and voices kept at a whisper once class has begun, supporting the focused mind, connecting to your breath and body, and allowing for a peaceful space for all to practice.
Avoid wearing heavy smelling lotions or perfumes during class. While your sweetie might love it, other students might experience sensitivity to it. Plus it might not be great for your mat.
PLEASE stay home if you are sick or feeling unwell. One pandemic is enough for a lifetime.
KEEP IT CLEAN
We encourage students to come to class with clean bodies, clothes, and mats to ensure a healthy space,
free from dirt and germs.
We encourage students to wipe down their mats at the end of each class in order to properly care & maintain their mat, as well as foster a cleaner practice. Feel free to use the cleaning spray bottles provided in the studio. Your mat will thank you.
Please always wipe down any borrowed mats, knee pads, or other applicable studio props using the provided cleaning spray and towels in the prop area within the studio. We don't need to share everything.
Please wipe up any sweat around your personal practice space to help us continually provide a clean, healthy space for all to practice. 'Cause, ew, gross.
KEEP IN MIND
While we love our little ones, classes are restricted to ages 18 and older. Check specific classes, series, workshops, and events for more specific age restrictions.
While we do lock the studio during all classes, we suggest keeping valuables at home. Palmetto Yoga & Wellness Oasis does not have lockers and will not be held responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged property.
No animals are allowed in the studio unless it is a certified and registered service animal.
We welcome you to take photos before or after class and encourage you to earn rewards points by checking in, tagging us, and/or sharing your experience on social media! PLEASE obtain permission from all those in your pictures. And just make sure to get my good side.
Lastly, but most importantly, Palmetto Yoga & Wellness Oasis prides itself on being a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space. There is NO room for judgement. This is a great practice for on AND off your mat! It's free, simple, and necessary. Remember...Non-judgement isn't just essential towards others, but towards yourself as well!
