An introduction to your teachers:

Jesse has studied with masters of Ashtanga, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Yin, and Integral Yoga. He continues studying to deepen his practice and understanding, inspired by teachers who have included Jonny Kest, David Williams, and Swami Satchitananda. Jesse holds an E-RYT 500 certification, as well as operating The Grateful Yoga RYS 200 for teacher training. On the mat he brings lightness, youthfulness, and a sense of gentle ease to his practice, sharing the art of vulnerability as a means to freedom and strength. Jesse leads his classes through creative, breath-guided flows that draw out a full range of motion and emotion, always leaving everyone smiling. He believes that yoga is the pathway to a renewed sense of awe, adventure, and appreciation of our lives, as well as an opportunity for us to feel more connected and intentional. He has been practicing and teaching since 2002, and continues to spread a message of peace, love, and community.


Sumi is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. She found yoga in 2007 in her hometown of Los Angeles, initially as a physical outlet from her stressful life in the finance world. Before long, she came to value the spiritual aspects of her practice. Almost a decade later, she decided to obtain her yoga certification. Sumi has dabbled in various styles of yoga, but has felt most at home within the Ashtanga tradition. Her alignment based flow classes are powerful and breath centered, true to her Vinyasa and Ashtanga background. She values anatomical precision and mindfulness in her sequencing. She has recently studied with Jason Crandell.
