The start of a new year signals a new beginning for many of us as we set our intentions toward self improvement. Yoga offers many of those benefits we seek such as physical development, mental clarity, and a deeper connection with our spiritual and emotional being. Our Tribe Yoga series features Jonathan Villacres (IG: @yogibear313) who has lead some amazing pop-up Yoga & Meditation sessions for Go Infinite in the past and was the featured Yogi for our highly successful Movement Jam last year. Space is limited for this special event, so make sure to RSVP in advance.
(Complimentary yoga mat rental will be available)
In 2013, Jonathan began his yoga journey due to several sports (long distance running and water polo) related injuries. It was also a time in his life where he was seeking a deeper connection with his own spirituality. Both came to meet when he took his first college course in yoga.
"The first day of class, my instructor told the class that our life's would be forever changed... she was right," explains Jonathan. Being so positively effected by the benefits, both spiritually and physically of the practice, Jonathan decided to sell his car to afford a yoga teacher training. In the spring of 2014, Jonathan was officially certified through The National Yoga Alliance and CorePower and has been teaching ever since.
His style is a beautiful balance of breath control and flowy movement with a deep connection that follows the ideology of yoga. He brings his love and passion into his classes, with the intention to build physically/emotionally and empower the students who attend.
