Dear Student, 

As the founder and primary teacher of the Jai Yoga YTT, it is my personal mission to provide you with a top quality education, while enjoying a life enriching experience.  This is my life's work, and my passion for it comes through in every aspect of the training.

Sixteen years ago, when I was in your shoes, (or bare feet) I had no idea what I was looking for out of a YTT. I had no idea my life would change in an instant with that one month journey I took. It is my absolute joy to now usher students such as yourselves into this amazing space of yoga. I look forward to every group uncovering their potential, their empowerment and their own personal wisdom. Join me, on the adventure of a lifetime; the journey within...




Are you ready for a life changing experience?  Becoming a yoga teacher begins with your own journey of self discovery, and grows with a desire to guide people along their path. It's about increasing your inner strength and peace while  developing  your voice in this world.

The Jai Difference:

  1.  Superior Teaching Technique, Hands on Adjustments & Mind-body Connection. Jai has an unusually high percentage of graduates who have gone on to become teachers.

  2. Personal Growth and Empowerment. You won’t just learn the yoga philosophy, you’ll embody it. Through sutras study and group discussion you'll gain confidence in your understanding and expression of yoga principles.
