With encouragement and guidance from Jacob’s great instructors, he studied for his first certification with Mitchel Bleier in 2012. He then studied with Noah Mazé and received his second certification in 2013. He furthered his education with YOGAMAZÉ and provided support and teaching assistance to the YOGAMAZÉ 200-hour and 300-hour teacher trainees. Jacob continues to study with great teachers to improve his teaching skills and is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP).
Jacob focuses on teaching safe, proper alignment, with strong attention on the breath. Everyone can do yoga, no matter what type of body you have. Your yoga might not be like the yoga of the person next to you, but it’s yours, and you are beautiful, right now. Jacob wants everyone to find the peace and acceptance that yoga can bring to life.
When not practicing yoga, Jacob likes to run long distances, tend his bee hives, train animals, and play with his family.
