Jason - Founder, Yoga Star
Jason’s fascination with movement and health started at the age of six when he began studying Eastern martial arts. The art teaches respect, loyalty, and kindness; teachings which created a solid foundation for Jason’s path in life. The practice also teaches willpower and the ability to use the mind to have control over the body.
While attending the University of Toronto for his physical health and education program (BPHE), Jason joined a body movement class which would bring that teaching into question. This particular class emphasized the importance of finding balance between the body and mind, and challenged the "mind over matter" teachings of martial arts. This class opened up a new understanding, exploration, appreciation and respect for the harmonious relationship between the mind, body and spirit.
For 25 years, Jason has pioneered one of the first in-home personal training companies in Toronto, a business that still supports individuals to achieve their health and fitness goals through nutrition, individualized exercise programs, a balanced lifestyle and healthy choices. With his education and experience, Jason has become a leading expert in the field of health and fitness. He has contributed to many news articles by providing useful and approachable concepts to living a healthy life.
No matter his experience, Jason continues to remain, as always, a student. He has spent over four decades attending various international health and fitness clinics, workshops, yoga retreats and healing focused health services to continue to explore movement, well-being and self care.
Yoga Star allows Jason to share his life long experiences, knowledge and passion. He is able to offer classes and services which encourage thoughtful movement, mindfulness, and the importance of community. Yoga Star welcomes you to a warm, healing, inviting space where you can nurture your own connection to mind, body and spirit.
