For Jason Nemer’s 30th birthday he received a case of coconuts, a book on Buddhism and… oh yeah, his car was stolen!
Jason shares his own journey of how he began teaching yoga, and the incredible circumstances that led him to traveling the world and practicing non-attachment. When his van (that he’d been living in) was stolen, along with all his worldly possessions, he became acutely aware of what was of most value in his life – friends and community.
Jason pursued acrobatics intensively during his teenage years, becoming a two-time US Junior National champion in partner acrobatics and representing the US at the World Championships in Beijing in 1991. He performed acrobatics in the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics.
It was only in his last semester at university that Jason came to yoga, and he has never looked back. Through the practice of AcroYoga, Jason cultivates trust, connection and playfulness, bringing people into a state of union with themselves, each other and the divine.
