Jahan Mostofi shares that yoga first showed up in his life in the late 90’s in the form of Bikram Yoga. However, it didn’t stick until years later. After a tough breakup, a friend suggested he return to the mat. “It was in a heated studio and a power vinyasa flow caught my attention. Through creative sequencing, paired with meditation and pranayama, I began to see dramatic changes in my persona and overall attitude.”
Mostofi’s practice became so powerful and dynamic that he eventually chose the path of a yoga teacher. “Teaching yoga blows my mind. Every time I see a room full of students in savasana I almost come to tears. It’s so beautiful helping people truly feel better. I never thought that I would be a teacher, but I love it and my students seem to love me… so there is the connection.”
Santa Fe yoga students will enjoy Mostofi’s more animalistic approach to movement in his powerful bowstring alignment classes.
Still an active co-owner of Cherry Street Yoga, a donation based yoga studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mostofi says his Santa Fe relocation is one that has been coming for several years. “I’ve taught at the Santa Fe Yoga Festival and every time I visited Santa Fe I felt such a strong draw to return home. It’s such a healing vortex and I’m just honored to be a part of this powerful community.” See ad, page 39.
