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.
