Jacob Handwerker

Around the age of 27, Jacob started trying different types of yoga classes. When he attended his first Mysore class in 2005, he knew immediately that this style of yoga was for him. He appreciates that Mysore style practice empowers one to develop their own practice. He has studied primarily with Kathy Cooper since 2007 and also assisted her at Ashtanga Lanka for five seasons.

    It was a fun, positive and warm community to be part of. Many people already knew Jacob and had been to several of his retreats, but I felt welcome from the first moment. There was lots of jamming and joking, morning yoga, and afternoon acro, thai massage and other yoga related workshops. There was lots of relaxing and no pressure to join anything. There were a few amazing trips in the Atlas mountains and many chances to walk around the city center. The house is a small Moroccan palace just on the outskirts of town. It is beautiful and calm, and Leo the hotel owner is a superhero and a pure delight. I should also mention that one of the people attending was a very lovely and knowledgeable local that organized the trips and shared such a deep knowledge of Morocco

    I found there to be a little lack of food, but I was too caught up in the fun to really think of it and ask for more food.

    Hi,

    The retreat was excellent and I want to give a 10 in all aspects. From the flow of activities to the accommodation facilities, location and choiices of food. I'm based in Dubai.

    Thank you,

    Maria

    Jacob takes care of his students. The atmosphere in the class is energized. I also enjoyed our meditations and slack-lining together, it was fun!

    My partner and I have spent many seasons with Jacob and Kathy at AshtangaLanka. Jacob is a great teacher and a lovely person. We have learned and received a lot from his teaching. His adjustments are the best we've had anywhere. As well as yoga, the Acro yoga can be great fun to try out!

  • Jack Moore California

    I have known Jacob for over five years as a yoga instructor, and have greatly enjoyed and benefitted in my Ashtanga and Acro yoga practice accordingly. I have always been inspired by his committed, knowledgeable, focused and compassionate teaching style and practice. He has helped me stretch, literally and figuratively, in the best ways!
