Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Hannah creates balanced, fun, intellectual, refreshing yoga sequences that take you on far away imaginary journeys while also teaching deeper yoga philosophy and wellness concepts. These classes are available live in San Diego or on video (many filmed on location) to take you on an inspiring journey abroad!
With 4 years of experience as a flight attendant, and many more adventures preceding, Hannah's curiosity and adventurous spirit have explored ancient ruins, pilgrimage treks, world famous art museums, countless natural beauty vistas and monuments, while encountering and soaking in elements from worldwide cultures. She has chosen San Diego as her home because of the abundant sunshine, aesthetic design, friendly people, nourishing
She also had the opportunity to teach 4 years of drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed media to students from grades 5-12 at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, Torrey Pines High School, and Endeavour Academy. Her lessons focused on individual creativity and learning about historical and cultural art techniques from around the world. Through the Language of Art, she taught the Elements (line, shape, form, value, space, color, and texture) as well as the Principles (balance, contrast, proportion, variety, unity, and gradation) in each art project. Hannah encouraged every student to analyze their own artwork and the artwork of others through discussions and presentations. Today, she offers private art lessons to individuals of any age who would like to explore their creative side in their media of choice.
Hannah first tried yoga at the end of her college studies, when her fingertips were 6-8 inches from touching the ground (in forward fold), then she dabbled in yoga on Nintendo Wii. She really dove in and found transformation through Yoga One San Diego. In 2012, while serving tables at Cafe Chloe, Hannah met Laura McCorey, a teacher and blog writer from Yoga One, and began learning yoga in beautiful Balboa Park. Laura opened her perspective to the healing aspect that yoga can bring and she began to find inner balance and peace as she practiced 3-4 times a week at the studio for the following years to the present. With an athletic background of a runner and hiker, Hannah gradually began to increase in flexibility, balance and whole body strength. Today, her palms can press against the earth in forward fold! This teaches us that yoga is not for the flexible, but it is here to help us become more flexible!
In fall of 2014, after completing the Rainbow Kids Yoga Training, she stumbled upon the opportunity to also teach yoga to her students at the charter school. She continued to deepen her practice as she received her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certifficate from Yoga One San Diego in March 2015. Hannah shared her passion of travel by taking kids through imaginary journeys to different places. This passion evolved into teaching live adult adventure classes at Yoga One San Diego and Waterfront Park.
Hannah's students have been able to experience the joy and health benefits that yoga has to offer. Hannah emphasizes safety in getting into and out of poses, proper alignment, and the benefits of breathing with your movements (Vinyasa Flow). She incorporates partner poses like 'Bicycle" and "House" to teach trusting and interconnected relationships.
Hannah enjoys inspiring her students through a full body experience of movement with breath, muscle strength and flexibility, connection with others, listening to verbal instructions and stories, playing world music, aromatherapy, and symbolism through visual art.
Hannah has had the opportunity to teach a Kids Summer Camp in 2015 that connects the yoga lessons to her art lessons. For example, she taught a Rain forest theme lesson with poses like tree, frog, jaguar, and rainbow, then incorporated illustration examples through books about the Rain forest, and students drew and colored their own illustration with these animals and objects. Further, after a yoga lesson of Things that Fly, students created bald eagles with vinyl by tracing their hands for the wings. Hannah aspires to share her light and enthusiasm to anyone who is open.
Hannah loves Half Moon pose and the contrast that it represents with the sun, similar to yin/yang philosophy. There are many contrasts in our life that are meant to be observed and appreciated: night/day, inhale/exhale, forward-bend/back-bend, hot/cold, energetic/calm, in/out, up/down, new/old, fast/slow, work/play, travel/home, left/right, clean/dirty, empty/full, difficult/easy, and young/old. She is inspired to continue to grow on her journey and share it with you!

Hannah is patient and Mia enjoys learning from her. I sit nearby during her home lessons and feel the teaching technique is perfect for Mia.
I took lessons as a child and feel Mia has accomplished much in five lessons while having fun and enjoying the songs she is playing.
I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone who has an interest in learning how to play the piano.
I chose piano lessons as a Christmas gift to my granddaughter. I waited until she showed an interest in learning piano and I'm happy to have found a great teacher. Thank you TakeLessons and thank you Hannah.

I also have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and a B.A. in Psychology from Wellesley College. As a licensed psychologist, I also practice psychotherapy (totally separate from my coaching practice).
In both coaching and psychotherapy, my approach is what is called "solution focused." That means that the focus is on helping people meet their goals by discovering and building on what's already working in their lives. With this approach, it isn't necessary to know everything about the past or even the problem to create solutions now.
I developed the "Doing What Works" and "Solution Focused Anxiety Management" programs and have facilitated them with hundred
I've had the privilege of teaching solution focused practice to many people. I've presented workshops on my “doing what works approach” to solution focused practice in the USA and abroad.
I am also an author. My most recent book, on decision making, is "How Do You Know When You Know?" A recent review of this book described it as "full of practical guidelines, relevant information, and examples written in an easy to read and engaging style... Ellen is a well-respected and revered giant in the field. Her brilliance extends to psychotherapy, coaching, writing and training."
I've also written books for professionals, "Solution Focused Anxiety Management," Doing What Works in Brief Therapy: A Strategic Solution Focused Approach" (1st and 2nd Editions), and "Core Competencies in the Solution Focused and Strategic Therapies." (The latter is part of a series on three primary approaches to practice, considered to be psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused. I had the honor of being asked to author the volume on solution focused practice).
With these experiences, I'm ready to help you discover strategies for riding through and beyond rough patches and bumps in the road. It would be my privilege to accompany you on your journey.

With the practice of yoga I have been able to take my practice from a physical experience to a spiritual experience and receive the sensation of "coming home to my mat". I would want nothing more to spread and teach yoga onto others so that they can become their best versions of themselves. I will personalize and customize yoga sessions so that they fit my student's needs and goals. If you want to have fun, get zen, and get flexible, let's work together!

Yoga has been such a life-changing practice for me, I was able to leave a highly stressful job and lifestyle in New York City behind to pursue my greatest passion of self betterment and helping others.
I’ve been able to learn from some amazing teachers in that time and have worked with a wide range of classes and students from folks brand new to the practice and physical activity to seasoned yogis, pro athletes, celebrities, people with illnesses and injuries, children and the elderly.
I’ve found that everyone has a hidden strength inside, a potential for happiness and their best self and my goal has been and will be to help bring it out you. I’m so grateful to wake up in the morning and do what I love every single day. Yoga is not a part time job or a s
I’m constantly trying to find the newest and best ways to challenge my students while making physical and mental changes accessible and above all fun!

I look forward to hearing your story and knowing how I can help. Let’s get on the path to your best self together!

Curious about inversion yoga? Learn how to do some of the essential poses in this guest post by San Diego teacher Tiffany V... We are so used to viewing life from a right-side-up perspective, where we soak in the world around us by way of our sensory organs (eyes, ears, nose, and mouth). We process everything upstairs, allowing it all to accumulate to form our point of view, which in turn fuels our decisions, reactions, and movements down to our toes.
