JL is a Bay-Area-based yoga teacher who teaches ,weekly Vinyasa classes offers a variety of unique workshops and special events, leads life-changing yoga retreats around the world… And she is simply one of the most loving, open-hearted humans you will ever meet.
JL’s goal as a yoga teacher is to provide her students with the opportunity to experience genuine joy, love, and connection (a.k.a. yoga) every time they step onto their mat. JL’s unique yoga teaching style is a creation all her own and an experience that all will benefit from. Influenced by yoga greats like Shiva Rea and Seane Corn, she is both flowing and grounded. Her classes are joyful, loving, spiritual, and inspiring. When you step away from one of her Vinyasa classes, you will feel more connected to yourself and the world around you. She provides loving support to newbies while continually challenging her regular practitioners to find greater depths in their practice.
JL first experienced yoga in 2000 when she was looking for a way to escape the daily stress from her job as a TV news producer in northern California. That was when yoga started to change her life. Overcome by the power and benefits of yoga in her own life, JL decided to move her career from the newsroom to the yoga mat in 2002. With curiosity and ambition, she followed her dream and began her training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health with an emphasis in Integrative Yoga Therapy. JL continued her training with Shiva Rea, embracing Vinyasa yoga. Through Vinyasa, she learned the powerful energizing and cleansing benefits of linking breath with movement.
JL is listed E-RYT with Yoga Alliance and taught for more than 14 years in Seattle and is now in the Bay Area. She teaches at national yoga festivals, including Wanderlust California, Pranafest, Northwest Yoga Fest, Northwest Yoga Conference and leads inspiring and fun yoga retreats all over the world.
