who is Jeffrey Posner?
Jeffrey Posner is a 200 Hour RYT, trained in the Lotus Flow™ at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York City. He has had the pleasure to train under Dana Flynn, Sheri Celentano, Alison Cramer and Mary Dana Abbott (MD) among the other lotus staff members all of whom he holds close to his heart. Jeffrey’s journey to yoga began with an effort to reduce lower back pain and stress in his daily life. At the time he was running a business selling real estate data online and flipping foreclosures in the NJ area. “I got so wrapped up in chasing success and money that I began to lose touch with myself and the things that really made me happy”. After being persuaded to attend a local yoga class he quickly found a centering of the mind and body he had not experienced before. Lacrosse, football, wrestling…although great sports and the joys of his athletic background, just didn’t compare to the overall feeling of a regular yoga practice. His classes encompass a creative flow that builds core strength and flexibility with plenty of opportunities for arm balances and inversions. Learn how to take flight and bring your practice to new heights! (literally)
Hi! I’m Jeffrey Posner, just a regular guy who played sports in high school/college then got wrapped up in the rat race and just concentrated on getting more “cheese”. After college, I rarely worked out and my weight went up and down like crazy. In addition, I began throwing my back out more and more from sitting in front of a computer most days for hours bat a time. Lower back pain became a major issue in my everyday activities and my health in general.
Enter Yoga into my life…My sister had been trying to get me to go to yoga for about 2 months before I finally gave it a shot. I would always ask, “isn’t it just a bunch of stretching?”, to which I would get an eye roll-asana response. After the first class I realized that not only is it more than stretching, it is more than a physical practice…and the journey began!
The yoga philosophy not only changed my physical body (starting with my back pain), it opened my mind up spiritually to see that there are other people out there like me…searching for more. I like to think of the yoga philosophy as a spiritual science, an ancient science of mind and body that man has passed down over time. An ancient practice designed to awaken the best in all of us.
