Jody Kesten, E-RYT 500, lives and breathes her yoga practice. She is deeply committed to her own life journey while increasing her capacity to assist others in their quest for joy, purpose, and attainment. She holds a deep commitment to making the teachings of yoga accessible and meaningful for all levels.
Dance was Jody’s gateway to her discovery of yoga, as music and movement have always served as powerful tools for her to connect with the body and elevate the spirit. While she loved the physical aspect governed by the strength and flexibility of her body, there remained a nagging sense of something missing. It was not until she stepped into yoga that she experienced for the first time a new dimension of deep peace and settledness.
Yoga has helped Jody to experience an increased sense of calm with less anxiety; less fatigue and reduced feelings of stress; and a growing confidence with steadier, more grounded emotions. She was so deeply moved by her transformation that she passionately dedicated herself to refining her knowledge through many years of study in order to offer the highest teachings to students. Now, Jody shares the depth of her knowledge and her love of the practices of yoga, meditation, and therapeutics through various classes in person and online.
Jody completed alignment based Anusara Yoga Teacher Training in 2005. She is dedicated to her craft and now continues the study and refinement of asana under the guidance of experts in the field of yoga therapeutics. Jody is dedicated to addressing the needs of her students through modern and well researched methods proven to work with greater efficiency and with longer lasting results. To this end, she is also trained as a Certified Roll Model Practitioner, a method which uses therapy balls for self-massage and myofascial release.
With warmth and humor, Jody creates a sanctuary of transformation for the body/mind.
