Jason Lawner is a dedicated yogi, lover of life and a teacher who is known for his passion, enthusiasm and clarity. In his dynamic and challenging classes, one can expect to receive precise alignment instruction, an uplifting and light-hearted message and an emphasis on the practical application of yoga into our modern day lives. This teacher's teacher credits the foundation of his teaching to his extensive training in Anusara yoga and his studies of Hindu Tantra. The buzz about Jason is that his classes are intense but are balanced by a very gentle way of presenting the material that allows the student to be empowered enough to succeed. His students can be heard leaving class saying... "I didn't realize I had that in me!"Jason has been an active athlete his entire life. After years of intense training, he found himself plagued by nagging injuries that prevented him from competing and training as he was accustomed to. As a means of rehab, he rather reluctantly checked out a yoga class and walked out with something that he never quite found in his years of gym training: an overwhelming sense of wellbeing. Since then he’s never looked back, and has dedicated himself to the study of yoga wholeheartedly.
