Jarrad, RYT 200, has been practicing yoga since 2007. As as seeker of the Truth, he was immediately drawn to the spiritual disciplines of yoga. However, it was not long until years of physical neglect bubbled to the top. It is very challenging to sit in meditation if your hips, back and neck are bothering you! Luckily, his wife was in a teacher training program and he began to practice with her. Through years of dedication to the practice, Jarrad noticed a great transformation of his being. This dedication as well as a desire to connect with others led Jarrad to complete teacher training at Willow Street Yoga Center. Jarrad teaches a flowing alignment-based class, in which he hopes students can create a greater well-being for themselves that can be felt on and off the mat. Jarrad pulls from this ancient tradition and western view to make a rich experience for his students. He believes that our own connection to our yoga practice is a very deep and meaningful one, however, that does not mean a class can’t be fun and uplifting, which is the emphasis of every class! In Jarrad’s Class: you will (first laugh, have fun,) and also experience a flowing, alignment based asana practice with a focus on breath awareness.
