Living, Learning and Moving

Jordan in Gothenburg

I am just returning from my first trip of the year to beautiful Scandinavia! It has been quite some time since I’ve written and I have a bunch of news to share with you all.

Updated Website:

Check out my new website at There you’ll find my upcoming events and schedule for 2014. There are many opportunities to come learn, move, study and play. In my updated bio you will notice my current approach for the events that I am offering. There will be a greater focus on movement principles and skills that apply not just to the mat but also to training, sports, movement disciplines and everyday life.

I keep on learning, training and educating myself both because I am passionate about movement and life and also so that I may keep offering you high quality trainings and opportunities to learn and grow in an ever changing and evolving world.


Events for 2014:

As well as the usual opportunities to come study and move with me through weekend workshops and other events there are some wonderful events to highlight. They promise to be jam packed full of good ideas, inspiration and great times. Come join us!

Living to Learn and Moving to Live:

I will be joining forces again this year with the fantastic Dr. Douglas Brooks for three events. These events will be the perfect opportunity for you to study with a world renowned scholar of Eastern thought and philosophy and delving into those ideas through a daily asana practice. The knowledge you gain will be useful in your everyday life.

Therapeutics, Movement & Mobility Training:

I will be offering two of these trainings this year and I hope you will be able to join me for both! This is an area of great interest for me. I have been studying continuously over the last year to expand and update my knowledge and techniques. You will learn how we can most effectively heal ourselves from injury, mobilize our bodies for greater health (and lower the risk of injury) as well as the most efficient techniques to optimize our bodies for high levels of performance. The training in Munich, Germany will focus more on therapeutic techniques and general mobility while the training in Linz, Austria will focus on techniques of self-mobilization and self-care.

These are some of the best times of the year to visit this truly unique country and exquisite culture. Come join me this year… you don’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity.
