Jodi started practicing yoga in 1998. She believes that yoga is a life-long practice that goes beyond the physical & should be introduced as early as one can walk. In 2007 she completed both her 200-hour Living Yoga and mini yogis certifications. She teaches yoga to children & teens, in addition to coaching & teaching yoga to the Special Maccabees, a co-ed basketball team for children with special needs. In 2013, Jodi did her second 200-hour training with Rudy Mettia. Jodi’s teaching philosophy is that yoga can benefit all bodies; if you can breathe, you can benefit from yoga. Her classes are light, fun & accessible to beginners, while also challenging for intermediate & advance practitioners with individual attention towards to each student. She has worked with toddlers through seniors of all levels of experience and abilities.
yoga is a gift
It is an uplifting, noncompetitive, mind-expanding, and fun way for children to build strength, spirit, and self-esteem.
mastering the ancient art of being a kid!
"[The teacher training] was an inspired and exquisite time. I look forward to sharing all the wonderful tools and joyful movement with all my little yogi stars and their parents. The whole world needs more mini yogis!!!"
