Jason has been on the yoga path for two decades now. His interest started with meditation when he was a teenager which led him to his own self created yoga practice at home. Not happy with what he found in books he decided to go to India and study at the source. There the real inward journey began. Knowing that not everyone is on a spiritual path, but everyone can benefit from yoga, he decided to create a space where yoga is made accessible for everyone. No dogma, just yoga. We are all free to find what we need from yoga whether its relief from stress or pain or just a way to ease your mind. Jason also offers Yoga Therapy and Inspirational Life Coaching. If you want to go further, all you need to do is ask. Otherwise, just enjoy the mat.

Fall down 7 times, stand up 8." This Japanese saying summarizes Serge’s philosophy of life and his approach to yoga.

Teaching has always been a passion of Mark's. Directly after high school he became a swimming instructor and spent a year teaching swimming at the local pool. Then during his military service he also taught in boot camp and now he teaches yoga. His life changed completely after being introduced to yoga and he couldn't be more grateful for it. As many have said before him, yoga is a way of life, and now it is his. Working on his personal and spiritual growth are his my main focuses in life; sharing his experiences and the tools to better oneself is the other. Nothing is better than seeing the progress you provoke in someone else and that is what he continues to strive to do through yoga.
