How Injury Was a Valuable Teacher on my YTTC for Yogi Times
“Jasmine was my yoga teacher for six months. After several different teachers, she was the first to make me feel good about my body in every practice. Instead of being disappointed that I am not where I want to be, I learned to be gentle and respectful to my body where I am. Since then I’ve been around the world in search of another teacher like her but I haven’t found one! However, the gift she gave me to fall in love with the practice and find the balance within me, I take with me everywhere.”Eden
“Jasmine’s classes make me feel at ease. She’s very knowledgable about Yoga philosophy but guides people to really practice in their own way, making Yoga accessible and relevant to everybody!”Olivia
