A native Austinite, Jessica Sager brings to Yoga Bear her love and passion for empowering others and sharing the gift of yoga. A lifelong student, Jessica has studied as a Kundalini Yoga teacher with Yoga Yoga Teacher Training, as a massage therapist at the Lauterstein Conway School of Massage, and in holistic nutrition at the Australasian College of Health Sciences. Both her parents are cancer survivors, which is part of the reason Yoga Bear's mission is very close to her heart. She is very thankful to yoga for helping teach her to breathe and appreciate the breath, and hopes through YogaBear she can share yoga's gifts with others.
Lindsey O'Brien (Denver) is extremely excited to be a volunteer for Yoga Bear and help spread health and wellness through the practice of yoga. She recently graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Integrative Physiology and plans to attend osteopathic medical school in the fall of 2010. Lindsay strongly believes that wellness is established through proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system and that the body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism and healthy function can be maintained through the practice of yoga and meditation. Lindsay also works as a chiropractic assistant at Fox Chiropractic in Broomfield, Colorado and enjoys traveling, working out, singing, and spending time with her family.
Jen Bluestein (NYC) is excited to be connected with such a wonderful and inspirational organization. She was initially drawn to Yoga Bear for her love of yoga, fitness and health and, being the daughter of a cancer survivor, her commitment to improving the well being of those suffering from, or in remission of, cancer. Jen is a graduate of the University of British Columbia, located in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada.
Dasha Bril (NYC) discovered yoga after an impromptu class in New York City. Having always been drawn to literature and philosophy that explored the nature of interconnectedness, Dasha found yoga to be the perfect physical expression of these ideas. From the sense of balance, clarity, and openness the practice of yoga brought her, she knew immediately that she wanted yoga to be part of her life. Dasha brings to Yoga Bear a desire to help others discover the physical, mental, and spiritual healing properties of yoga.
