Jeffrey has a 300-hour teacher training certificate from Yoga Therapy Toronto. His next teachers were the youth he met and taught in institutional or shelter environments. His basic style follows the Desikachar school of Hatha yoga, with a focus on the coordination of breath and movement, combined with an emphasis on interoceptive awareness. He’s of the opinion that it is wiser to fit the pose to the body than the body to the pose; every body is different.
