Jordan Faragher

 

Jordan found a love for yoga and fitness at a young age. Though her practice was put on the back burner when she started college, yoga repeatedly found its way back into her life. After interning for a summer and learning about biomechanics and kinesthetics, she pursued a personal training certificate through National Academy of Sports Medicine and received her yoga instructor's certificate through Let It Go Yoga. Jordan’s main focus is connecting the body with the mind and creating a positive body image for her students and clients. She is now studying holistic nutrition and will soon become a certified holistic health coach.

 

Skyler Levenson

 

 

With a strong passion for personal growth and meditation, Yoga came as naturally to Skyler as a bumble bee to a flower. He quickly realized the vast potential and depth of Yoga. After a year of intense practice he knew becoming a teacher was the next step to engage and challenge himself to reach new levels of compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance. He constantly is striving to better himself; attempting to be fearlessly vulnerable and authentic to connect with his students and help them realize their own incredible potential.

This openness creates a light hearted and explorative environment where Meditation, Humor, and Challenge are all welcome. But most importantly, he hopes this environment supports students so they feel comfortable to push their own boundaries and grow. Come with an open mind, leave with an open heart. And most likely a smile.

For me, practicing yoga is the thread that weaves all aspects of my life together, bringing a deeper sense of meaning and connection to being alive. To practice yoga is to explore our deepest self from the inside out. The practices teach us how to consciously utilize our most natural and inherently powerful tools - the breath and the body. Through consistent practice we can begin to use these tools to live happier and more fulfilling lives, not only for ourselves, but for all beings and the entire earth. May we all be happy and free!

 

Hello :) I'm a third year UCSB student with a burning enthusiasm for life. I love dancing, surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, wrestling, cycling, acro yoga-ing, and just about anything that involves physical activity. For me, yoga is a healing practice. Yoga allows me to heal both the physical and emotional traumas that, if left unattended, inhibit me in all aspects of life. I have found a safe space in yoga classes where I can connect deeply with myself while strengthening my body and my mind. And this is what I strive bring to your table through my teaching. Let's show ourselves some Self-love and unblock our full potential!
