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.

Greetings! My name is Tameika and I am so excited to be the new instructor for Unwind & Stretch on Wednesday evenings! Although I’ve only been teaching for a year, I’ve been a student of yoga for 13 years! A little about me. I’m a native of North Carolina, growing up in a small town called Lincolnton just Northwest of Charlotte. The only child to Charles and Betty. Civil Engineer by day, creative by night, and a student of yoga all the time! Graduate of UNC-Charlotte with a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. Been in Columbia for 10 years and I have found it to be the absolute best speed for my lifestyle. As for hobbies, I’m a total nerd. I love to read, visit museums, and visit Hilton Head Island as much as possible. I also love doing crafts.
Favorite thing about yoga? I’m glad you asked. I love the diversity in the poses! You can be in a class of 25 people and each of them is in the same pose, but it’s fitted to their bodies. Great representation of our world, right?
