Meet your new am­bas­sadors

Yoga Journal - - LIVE BE YOGA TOUR -

Every year, Yoga Jour­nal hits the road for six months to take the pulse of the prac­tice across the coun­try. In 2018, we’ll ex­plore where those trends are headed and how they’ll shape the fu­ture of yoga in the West. Meet our new am­bas­sadors here, fol­low their ad­ven­tures on­line ( yo­ga­jour­­be­yoga, @live­be­yoga), and don’t miss meet­ing up with them in per­son at events in 15 cities (in­clud­ing Lon­don)!


in San Fran­cisco, Jeremy Falk finds in­spi­ra­tion in ob­serv­ing how yoga is prac­ticed and em­bod­ied around the globe. His own yoga jour­ney be­gan in 2003, and was ul­ti­mately trans­formed when he landed in Rishikesh, In­dia, for five months in 2012. “The pro­found ef­fects the city had on my mind and spirit were in­escapable and life chang­ing,” he says. Falk com­pleted a 200-hour yoga teacher train­ing there be­fore re­turn­ing state­side. He has since stud­ied with prom­i­nent Bay Area yoga teach­ers Stephanie Sny­der, Janet Stone, and Ja­son Cran­dell, fin­ish­ing a 500-hour train­ing. His mis­sion: “At the end of the day, my pas­sion is to heal the world by em­pow­er­ing peo­ple through the prac­tice of yoga.”


while her mother was fight­ing ter­mi­nal cancer, Aris Seaberg turned to yoga in 2014. The prac­tice sparked a trans­for­ma­tion that quickly led to a 500-hour Akhanda Shakti teacher train­ing and ad­di­tional study of pre­na­tal, kids, and trauma-in­formed yoga. On top of all of that, Seaberg opened her own stu­dio in Orange County, called Lu­mi­nous Soul Tribe, de­signed to help com­mu­nity mem­bers stay healthy and bal­anced in body, mind, and soul. Seaberg sees the fu­ture of yoga as all-in­clu­sive and ther­a­peu­tic. “I have learned how help­ful yoga can be for deal­ing with stress, grief, PTSD, in­jury, ill­ness, and more, and I want to be part of a big­ger move­ment that shares this in­cred­i­ble prac­tice,” she says.
