More About our Yoga Teacher

Jed’s first encounter with yoga was on the hilltops of Vagator beach in Goa, India.  At that time she began to study and practice Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga. It was 1992 and she has practiced and made yoga a part of her life ever since.

Jed has spent many years in India where the teachings really get under your skin.  She likes to pull together many different influences and aspects of yoga in order to offer a potent practice that delights the senses and awakens the participants to the mystery of the magical design that we call life. The bliss that yoga offers through the asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation allow one to open to yoga beyond the physical.  Jed also likes to explore the philosophy of the ancient texts and the teachings of the Buddha and show how these ancient arts can lay the foundation for a happy healthy life.
