JASON COOPER

Teacher

I started practicing yoga in 2014, invited by my aunt. I attended a class without any expectations and I enjoyed the physical practice which eventually led me to enjoy more of who I am, emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually and energetically. Such awareness made me realize that yoga is so much more than just the time you spend on the mat or at the studio and if I didn’t extend this practice into my daily life my and connection to everything around me, I wasn’t truly practicing yoga. That inspired me to take teacher training. In these past few years of teaching, I  have had the opportunity to share my experiences with those who cross my path.
