  • My favorite yoga pose is: Cobra.
 
  • My favorite music to practice to is: Anything calm and low key. 

 

  • I love my: Hair.  It's fun and it's different. It makes me, me. 

 

  • You must try this healthy snack: Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings."  A great healthy alternative to chicken wings!

 

  • My advice for beginning yogis is: Well, I'm still a beginner myself, but I would say don't get frustrated if you can't perfect a pose right away. It takes practice! 

 

  • I’m most grateful for: My amazing family. 

 

  • If I could practice yoga with anyone, it would be: Florence Welch because she might sing the whole time and it would be so peaceful to practice to her voice. I have no idea if she does yoga ... if not, we'd be beginners together!

 

  • My heroes are: My big brother and my grandparents, as well as my parents of course. They have always been there to make me smile and help me grow.

 

  • My one wish for the world is: Health. 

Nate Jackson

When he’s not teaching yoga, Nate helps fathers reconnect with their families with a local nonprofit. He can also occasionally be spotted Heely-ing through the streets of Cleveland.



  • My teaching style is: down-to-earth, physically innovative (integrated strength and mobility work), and individualized.

 

  • My favorite yoga pose is: locust so I can pretend to be a jet (and maybe challenge some ujjayi breathing).

 

  • Yoga has helped me overcome: neck pain and body shame.

 

  • I love my second toe on my right foot (‘the toe”)… come check it out and witness its glory.

 

  • My favorite deity is: brahman or “ultimate reality” because it pacifies my heart to remember that what is true is true whatever my feelings or perceptions dictate.

 

  • You must try this healthy snack: Krave Jerky it's healthy and unconventional flavors of various dehydrated meats.

 

  • My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is Namaste because I’m basic AF, but seriously because it truly is a lifestyle of appreciating the imago dei (image of God) in everyone.

 

  • My advice for beginning yogis is: start with your breath. Master your ujjayi (ocean breath)… google it, study it, practice it at least 5 minutes every day for your first month. It affects everything.

 

  • I’m most grateful for: 8 awesome niblings (nephews and nieces).

 

  • The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: in my mind… it gets crazy up there.

 

  • If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be with my beautiful sister, Tricia, because she introduced me to both yoga and a deep well of grace and compassion.

 

  • My heroes are: Aladdin and Abu.

 

  • My one wish for the world is: for compassion to become more contagious and invade areas of personal and systemic suffering.

Sydney Corbin

Sydney came to her mat at Release a year ago. Her journey to crafting this life has been a colorful one. As a disciple of Christ, she has found that yoga can be one of many ways she connects with God. You can count on a fiery flow in her classes with a heavy emphasis on the use of breath as a tool to cleanse the mind and body. Sydney has a burning desire to lead her students on a path of falling in love with yoga and growing towards the knowledge of their true self.

 

My teaching style is: Challenging, authentic, and explorative. I love pushing my practice to the edge and playing with new movements.   I love my core because: It's strong and powerful. It holds the fire to my practice. You must try this healthy snack: Avocado and tomato on whole grain seed toast.


My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is ... because: Ahimsa: Nonharmning.“Ahimsa” is as the absence of violence but also conscious consideration and love for one’s self and others.

My advice for beginning yogis is: Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, Listen to it and respect what it tells you. 

I’m most grateful for:Every twist and turn in the road that lead me to where I am today. Because it led me to exactly where I'm meant to be - RIGHT HERE! The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: Off the grid in the mountains of Oahu, Hawaii!
