Jordan shares his love for yoga with his students in every practice he guides. From the start of his journey in health he has made it his goal to understand others needs on a service level. Providing exceptional guidance through insight of self, and encouraging the vast potential in each individual. His teaching is always safe, but Jordan also knows that providing a playful practice brings balance to the mind and establishes connectivity to our true nature of community. Making life beautiful on AND off the mat! It's apparent that he is passionate about yoga and its cultivation of awareness woven throughout the body, naturally developing the capacity to grow and progress in practice. Jordan sequences guidance with the intention of creating space to enhance your breath, and expel toxicity stagnation of the body and mind while using lines of energy throughout for stability and strength. Vinyasa that is set with mindful movement is optimal in facilitating an introspective experience in your yoga.
Programs for runners, athletes, kids involved in sports, and injury rehabilitation and prevention have been developed by Jordan. He also provides guidance in one to one settings, group sessions, yoga at the park, bootcamps and donation based pop up classes. Off the mat he enjoys snowboarding for the fluidity of movement and awareness it creates, practicing inversions for quality of stillness within movement, studying yoga and bio-mechanics for better understanding of its modalities, traveling to learn from traditional and progressive forms of yoga, and exploring the great outdoors of Oregon for re-connecting to nature and its abundance of beauty!

Powerful, knowledgeable, patient and inspiring – all you could ask for in a teacher. His classes are thought provoking and well sequenced. His kinesthetic knowledge is vast and his adjustments safe. Jordan will skillfully guide you to your edge and safely support you in taking it one step further! Ive had the pleasure of learning from and practicing with Jordan. Take advantage of any opportunity you have to learn from him!

Patient Teacher

I came to Jordan with an interest in joining his yoga classes. He suggested some private lessons prior to doing so. I can't tell you how beneficial those sessions were to me. Jordan is very patient and allows you to learn at your own pace. He also helps you get deeper stretches allowing you to exceed the limits you think you have. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in yoga.

Wish I lived closer

Jordan is an amazing teacher. I feel like I'm in good hands and willing to try whatever he throws my way because I know he has spent time thinking about the safety of the sequence and alignment.

With his history in personal training he is also one of the few teacher I trust to adjust me correctly.

He is also quite the character and an inspiration, the full package of what you want in a teacher. Don't hesitate to go to one of his classes or workshops.
