Jessie Luttman, a Miami native with an MBA in Development Studies from Oxford, has resided in Asia for the past 13 years, where she has pursued her love for yoga and yoga advocacy.
The extensive exposure to numerous different practitioners & shared viewpoints on yoga was the most influential aspect in shaping her teachings. Her dedication to teaching yoga has touched people from all over the world, from beginners to experienced yoga teacher trainees.
Because of yoga's adaptability and diversity, Jessie has decided to pursue a more scholarly study of both the philosophy and history of yoga.
Her research into the history of women in yoga, as well as many years of studio observations, has led her to raise crucial questions about the ability of modern yoga to assist women's health and self-esteem.
Jessie uses the platform to investigate some of the most pressing themes in contemporary yoga (such as inclusivity, gender, and the hazards of commodification), as well as striving to guarantee that postural yoga is beneficial to women's health and social as well as environmental justice.
Angela Farmer, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Denise Payne, and Mark Whitwell are just a few of the wonderful teachers Jessie has had the pleasure of learning from.
