Jesse moved to San Marcos in 2013 to establish a 1-acre homestead and quickly fell in love with yoga. In February of 2017, Jesse traveled to northern India to study yoga at the base of the Himalayas. He was blessed to earn his 200-hr. teacher training under two yogis that he considers to be awakened masters. The experience was life changing and showed him how far yoga can take us into deeper loving, joy and presence.
Jesse believes foundation, alignment is most important. Yoga asks us to pay attention to what’s going on inside our body and mind, so we can make proper adjustments for a solid foundation. Like a tree sapling, only once our roots are established can we begin growing stronger and expanding towards the light.
