“Jeffrey’s teaching, dynamic and high-intensity, physically challenges you in a way that cultivates your fullest single pointed attention, which meanwhile asks you to approach your practice from a very loving place within. In this way, we learn how to use the physical practice to nurture the self, and create synergy between the body, mind and soul.”.
Jeffrey Villanueva began his journey of Yoga in 2007, immediately reaching an emotional level within the practice that struck him. Yoga has taught him compassion, love, and all the tenets to be cultivated as a yogi in his journey to be of service, not only to himself, but through himself to the world.
Completing the 300hr Jivamukti Certification in 2011, respectfully thanking Sharon Gannon and David Life for making that possible and continued the 500hr Jivamukti apprenticeship program where Wisdom, Bhakati, Love, Respect, and Frienship have come as dear instructions imparted by his beloved teacher Sangeeta Vallabhan.
Currently, Jeffrey is studying under the guidance of Guy Donahaye, director of the Ashtanga Yoga Shala Nyc and continues to daily immerse himself in his sadhana so that he may share his love of and passion for yoga to inspire others as he has been genuinely inspired.
