Yoga is a very personal journey, and my goal as a teacher is to help make it more fun and enjoyable for my students.

Jes (she/her)

I love teaching yoga at C.S.U. and being part of this awesome community. I was introduced to Yoga during a dance intensive when I was 15, and 19 years later it is still an important part of my life. I teach various Vinyasa inspired classes and offer sound bath meditations! I am also a Social Worker and passionate about supporting the mental and emotional health of individuals and communities. I love to spend my time with my family exploring the outdoors and being in nature as much as possible!

Cyros (he/him)

Stoked to see that you’re taking interest in my class! I teach a style of yoga that I call “Slow Flow.” I combine a traditional style of yoga called Hatha and blend it with a Vinyasa ~flow~ practice.

At the end of the day, I hope my class is an experience where you can come and enjoy your body and mind.
