Nate completed his 200 hour teacher training and has been teaching yoga for almost a year and practicing for over 5. He sees yoga as a playground for communal healing and challenging growth. When he’s not teaching yoga, Nate works in middle school based mental health with a local nonprofit. He can also occasionally be spotted Heely-ing through the streets of Cleveland.
My teaching style is: down-to-earth and physically innovative (integrated strength and mobility work).
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.
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.
Nate Jackson instructs the following:
Have fun with a combination of hip hop beats and classic vinyasa flow sequences that make for an intense and challenging experience. This is a high intensity class that combines strength, creativity and raw self-expression, in the music and practice alike. Full on rap music (yep, there will be swears), twerks, and fun. Don't bring the kiddos to this one gang!

Vinyasa, commonly referred to as a "flow" style, is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that connects movement with breath. This moderately paced practice seamlessly blends one pose into another to create heat in the body, build strength, improve balance, and increase flexibility. While these classes are appropriate for all levels of practitioners, some experience is suggested.
Temperature: Warm Flow: 82°-86°
