“Before I started practicing yoga, I questioned my ability to do it. I was inflexible, stressed out, and unhealthy in general. I thought, this is probably not for me … but here’s what I found: Yoga has helped me grow stronger, be more flexible and be fearless — both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each and every moment mindfully.
I have learned that I will always be a student of the practice. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity I have to share yoga with the same community from where I was born and raised. It is so satisfying and meaningful to me when I hear students say how they see yoga changing them as well.”
Jay completed a 200 RYT teacher training program in 2016 with Himalayan Yoga Darshan. When not teaching yoga, Jay works for Providence Health & Services as a Hospice Registered Nurse, and enjoys hiking, cooking and hanging out with his three sons.
