In 2001, while teaching yoga at the YMCA, Jodi met a student with Parkinson’s Disease. His doctor had advised him to try yoga. Because of the severity of his Parkinson’s, it wasn’t the best fit for him to be in a group class setting. At that time, Jodi was a new teacher and was unfamiliar with Parkinson’s Disease and the benefits yoga could have. But, she believed in yoga and knew there must be benefits, so she began researching, and later began working privately with the student in his home. Over the months that Jodi met with him, she was amazed at how much he looked forward to the sessions. He relaxed during the sessions, and was able to practice a full chair yoga sequence that was tailored to meet his needs. Some years later, Jodi lived in Bend, and while there, began teaching yoga to seniors at the local senior center. In 2013, Jodi completed the Silver Age Yoga Teacher Training. Since 2014, Jodi has offered her Senior Yoga Teacher Training as part of a 500-hour teacher training program at Spirit Yoga in Osaka, Japan. Today, Jodi frequently teaches yoga to seniors living at University House in Wallingford, as well as privately.
