Welcome! I am Ken Jones, musician, yogi, & proud puppy papa. I recently relocated to Los Angeles, CA from Chicago, IL to search for truth through movement. With the use of Yin and Yang, I ultimately strive for balance for my students mind, body & souls.
I finished my 500 Hour Teacher Training in Chicago with Heather Peterson and Paula Colletti. I am currently working towards my e-ryt 500. I started my Yoga journey back in 1996 in New York City practicing Bikram Yoga on the upper west side of Manhattan, NY. Fast forward to 2001, I was living in Champaign, IL finishing my bachelor's degree when I fell in love with Vinyasa Yoga through the modern technology of VHS tape and Rodney Yee. In 2007 I found myself heavy with physical and emotional 'weight.' I started a two year weight-loss journey. In that time I started practicing Yoga Sculpt, Heated Yoga with weights and found that I was able to intensify my workouts and gain strength for my Vinyasa practice.
I became certified in 2012 and have been teaching ever since. Christy Kent led my first Yoga Sculpt training, with Kate Quinn and Nicole Orr leading my 200 Hour in the summer of 2012. I took a Restorative training in the fall of 2012 with Dave York. From 2013-2015 I was honored with being Naperville, IL's Lululemon Ambassador. In 2018 I traveled to Costa Rica and led a Yoga Retreat at Pura Vida Spa in Alejeula, CR with Kathryn Smith-Tobias and Anthony Chavez and 42 amazing yogis. After managing several yoga studios, I found myself in sunny LA with the MOKSHA, or freedom, I have always wanted.
Currently, I am teaching at Zen Yoga WeHo. Check out my schedule here.
With friends and esteemed Yoga curators, Josh Kreischer and Paco Garay, I am planning on leading a Yoga Retreat in to come.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any questions. Namaste. KJY
