YBS is an awesome Yogi community! I really appreciated the “Shift Happens” online event today....just what I needed to help me look in, work forward through this. I fell in love with YBS at my first class, as they practice in a way that lends toward a great deal of self-reflection and personal growth. Thank you Ron & Linda, and all the excellent YBS staff for all you do for yogis out there and the greater community! Can't wait until we can practice together again IRL!
Jay started practicing yoga in July 2017. Yoga Body Shop was the first studio he had ever been to, and hot power vinyasa was the first style of yoga he practiced. After living an unhealthy lifestyle as an Over the Road Truck Driver he was looking to improve flexibility, get back into shape and change his overall lifestyle while meeting a like-minded community. Jay always heard about the mind, body and spirit healing aspects of yoga, and believed it could help him relax and reconnect with himself and the community. After experiencing Baptiste yoga and hearing the inspiration and positive energy involved, he decided to take the Personal Power Development Program/200hr Teach Training at Yoga Body Shop in October 2017 and Baptiste Level 1 in Augugust 2018, where he learned the ideology of Baptiste and what yoga as a whole was truly about beyond the asana. He became an instructor at Yoga Body Shop to inspire others as he was inspired, and to share tools and methods he has learned through yoga. On his off time Jay enjoys spending time with family and friends, being outdoors whether it is traveling, hiking, or going to the beach or a lake.
