Jacob Handwerker

Around the age of 27, he 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 your own practice. He has studied primarily with Kathy Cooper since 2007 and also assisted her at AshtangaLanka for five seasons.

    "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!"

    "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!"
