Originally from Ohio, Jordan had been introduced to yoga and meditation as a form of cross-training during swim season. An athlete for most of her childhood, health and wellness were seeds that were planted early in her consciousness. Having to find a cheaper (aka free) way to practice yoga during college, Jordan turned to the internet. With the ease of being able to practice in her space, at any time, yoga crept its way into her daily routine. Once you become privy to life with yoga, not much makes you want to go back to life without yoga.
A fresh graduate in 2015 from Ohio University, Jordan took a leap of faith where she was ultimately brought to Hawaiʻi. In 2016 she completed her 200hr-RYT with Hot Yoga 8. Work required a move away from the busy and studio-saturated town of Honolulu, to the west side of the island where yoga studios are much more scarce. Teaching classes at farms of all places, eventually bloomed into the opportunity to run her own studio space, the studio space became West Oʻahu Yoga. The studio closed it's doors in early 2020, perhaps a blessing in disguise for what was to come.
A typical class with Jordan involves gentle movement to awaken the body, gradually building heat in the body, followed by smart sequencing to get the most out of your movements, then winding down with gentle stretches and a sweet savasana. Her goal as a teacher is for at least one person to walk away from class feeling empowered to do the right thing, and to water the desire to make it a habit. As a student of life and yoga, her goal is to never stop learning.
