About Jason

A Senior Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer, Jason has worked within the body-mind industry for almost two decades and is a recognized Master Teacher. Having first explored Vinyasa krama at Jivamukti almost twenty years ago, he is thrilled to be a part of the Jivamukti family.

An academic at heart, his Yogic pursuits have been extensive, as his craving for Yoga knowledge only increased with time.

His explorations and Trainings have ranged from the classical Hatha Tradition (Bishnu Ghosh Lineage in Calcutta, India), to the Integration of Hatha, Tantric, and Ayurveda sciences under Yogiraj Alan Finger (ISHTA Yoga Lineage integrated by Sivananda Kaviyogiraj Mani Finger, Swami Venkatesananda, Swami Nishraisananda, and Tantric master Shuddhand Bharati in Johannesburg, South Africa). T. Krishnamacharya studies followed under the Teachings of T.K.V. Desikachar, Shiva Rea, and Christopher Tompkins. Extensive embodied anatomy, therapeutics, and integrated asana studies were pursued under Leslie Kaminoff, Amy Matthews, Jill Miller, Gil Hedley, Jason Crandell, and Sadie Nardini, for whom he is a Master Trainer. Years of study were logged in Sanskrit, mantra, and japa sadhana under the late Namadeva Acharya and Sanatana Dharma Satsang (Sant Keshavadas lineage in Bangalore, India) followed by over 3000 Graduate school hours in anatomical, chinese medical, biomedical, orthopoedic, and neurological sciences. Yin and Restorative Yoga education was completed under the teachings of Bernie Clark, Paul Grilley, and Travis Eliot.

He believes that every Yogi is unique, and each lineage hands down beautifully intricate textures and nuanced perspectives of the Teachings. There is a Practice for everybody, and for every body there is a Practice.

In classes with Jason, you’ll learn how to break the habit of moving only from the superficial body and loading layers of tension onto yourself. You will discover how to use the myofascial meridians and kinetic chains along the skeleton to make quick gains in authentic power, making all your poses more possible as you keep your body healthy for years of Yoga to come. You'll learn quite literally to move from your subtle physical body. Also an Usui and Kundalini Reiki Master, further initiated into Shaktipat, multiple perspectives and possibilities are offered for unbound energetic potential.
