Jeff started his yoga journey in Seattle in 1998 and completed training in 2011 with internationally re-known yoga instructor Natasha Rizopoulos.
As a yoga practitioner and teacher, he approaches his practice as a journey of self-reflection, healing, and spiritual elevation. Jeff likes to focus his students on breathing, alignment principles and personal empowerment. He believes the purpose of yoga is less about flexibility and more about finding a journey toward better health and incremental self improvement. While in Seattle, Jeff studied Hung-Gar Kung-fu for 8 years and Eng Wu Tai Chi for 1 year at the Seattle Kung-fu Club under Master John Leong. He also studied Qi Gung under Sifu Fook Yueng for 1 year.
When he is not on the mat, Jeff enjoys playing tennis. He also enjoys sunrise paddling 6 person Hawaiian outrigger canoes in the waters around Salem, Marblehead, and Beverly, MA. He is a founding member of Boston Outrigger Racing Association in 2001 and has captained the team for over 10 years.
