Jason Leifeste

Jason initially discovered yoga through a colleague, but more seriously through his sister Kristina, who teaches and practices at Indigo. He found that yoga is not only a physical workout, but also a mental practice. When you combine the two, set an intention, and block out distractions, you can create a state of oneness through your breath. The people, food, weather, and amazing scenery of Southern new Mexico, along with the incredible yoga community, are what inspire him to live life free and do what he loves to do: cook and practice yoga with and for others. The New Mexican Food Truck is his "day job." He received his RYT-200 through Spacecraft yoga, led by local legend Holly Ray Bemis-Shurtz.  He is happy to lead others through Rocket, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa flow yoga classes for all levels of practitioners. When you live life without fear, all is coming and ALL can be accomplished!

Jason Leifeste instructs the following:
  • Rocket Yoga
  • What is the rocket?
    In the 1980s in San Francisco, Larry Schultz created the THE ROCKET, a series of routines modifying the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system for all levels of students. The Rocket combines key poses from the primary and intermediate series to create a twisting, heart opening, arm balancing, inverting, perception shifting ride. With plenty of ways to modify the classical poses, the benefits of the poses are transmitted equally to renew vitality and energy. The Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed the precious prana, life force energy. The spirit of change and freedom is found within the practice. Level: Intermediate/Advance NO HEAT
