Zach Jenkins

Zach is from Mandeville, Louisiana. He attended LSU and studied English Literature. During his studies at LSU, Zach began to practice yoga and meditation. His aim while at University was to fuse western and eastern philosophical traditions. This pursuit of union, soon turned into a passion for Buddhist and Yogic philosophy. After completing his studies in English Literature at LSU, he followed his heart to the Omega Institute in New York, where he was inspired to become a yoga teacher. He completed his first yoga teacher training at Parmath Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, India. After returning to the States, he began another teacher training program with Sean Johnson and Mitchel Bleir. Since then, he has taught yoga at Wild Lotus Yoga in New Orleans and workshops at Big Bear Yoga Festival, the Omega Institute and other meditation centers and yoga studios throughout the country. Throughout his studies, he has fused traditional yoga, Bhakti, Tantra, with contemporary yoga styles, and western philosophy. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit “Yuj” or union. As such, it is his personal philosophy that all activities in life, all traditions, religions, and philosophies should be united, in order to alchemize suffering for the benefit of all beings.
