Meet Your Teachers

We are truly honored to have a wise, compassionate, dedicated, and deeply inspiring group of humans to call our colleagues and friends. They are each absolute experts in their fields, having spent years as students and teachers. Together, our teaching team brings decades of diverse experience in the classroom, on the mat, and in living our yoga. We trust our incredible faculty will invite you deeper toward your unique path of yoga (and life)!

Jacq St Pierre

I’m a mama, a lover of travel, books, music, and forever and always studying our human experience. Based in Austin, TX I teach Vinyasa Krama, Meditation, Ayurveda, Bhakti Yoga, Teacher Trainings, and Harmonium Lessons around the globe.

My classes ask you to return to the wisdom you have deep within, remind you not to take yourself too seriously, and always keep things interesting! I believe our yoga practice is not just for our own individual lives, but for the collective freedom and good of all beings.

I attended Laughing Lotus College of Yoga in San Francisco and have studied extensively with my teachers there and in NYC. I am deeply humbled and forever grateful to the practice and all of those who have guided me along the way. As Ram Das said, “When you know how to listen, everybody is the guru.”

I’ve been a seeker all my life. It has brought me to the depths of addiction, to all corners of the world, and gratefully to my yoga mat. Through this wide reaching practice, I continue to unravel, explore & understand the most fascinating of all the landscapes – the inner one as a path to the outer…

I believe in utilizing our curiosity and cognition, both of mind and soma, to peel back our many layers, revealing myriad selves including our unconditioned ones. My teachings are woven with threads of playful sequencing, yogic and Buddhist philosophy, and both the neuroscientific and mythic lens, all nestled on a foundation of compassionate self-inquiry.

A deep bow for my many teachers on and off the mat as this practice of inner and outer unity has literally saved my life.

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.

We aim to not only share knowledge but more importantly, to LEARN together. Learning is a verb, it is alive, shifting and requires the willingness to suspend what we think we know.
