“For the sake of humankind and the world itself, everyone in this world needs to snap out of the trance and LACE UP: Listen, Absorb, Comprehend, Embrace, Utilize and Perpetuate. Take all the tools that are easily and readily accessible for well-being and assist in progressively enhancing the growth of peace, love, health, harmony, knowledge and wisdom.” He says with great conviction, “But remember it has to start from within and in Yog(union) we together can make the world a perfect natural place as it was intended be. Make the single decision of changing ones perspective to being accepting and positive without expectation in results. One will live life armed without weapons and unharmed with many wounds! Fighting the internal battle and becoming wiser with every attack.”
Yoga found Jeremy several years ago and became an important part of his life after moving to Korea. The stress of learning the language and the fast-paced lifestyle there led him to search for the inner peace that is Yoga. Upon leaving Korea, he and his wife moved to Bali where they did their Yoga teacher training together at Blooming Lotus Yoga. He finds great joy in helping others along the path that has taught him so much.
Jeremy is also an active language learner and teacher - teaching Korean and English - and currently studying Spanish and Sanskrit. Language learning has been a wonderful form of mind Yoga for him and he sees intriguing parallels between our brain's use of language and our body's use of movement. He sees learning a new language as a way of creating new perspectives through which to see the world in order to see the world as it is.
