From Jee:For thousands of years, the primary objective of yoga has been to cultivate meditative awareness. This requires slowing down. To slow down we need to be able to wait patiently. Most of us who live in this fast-moving society do not feel comfortable when we hear the words "slowing down and waiting." Too often we get trapped by the allure of speed and are thrown off balance. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna says to Arjuna "Yoga is Equanimity." Cultivating meditative awareness is to invigorate equanimity by being in the balance between effort and ease, control and surrender, knowing and not-knowing, and yin and yang. Pico Iyer expresses the beauty of slowing down into stillness in his poem.
“In an age of speed….nothing could be more invigorating than going slow.
In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention.
And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still”
Jee has been dedicated to teaching yoga since 2001. Her studies began with a teacher training course with a qigong teacher in Seoul, Korea; she went on to train in Ashtanga and Anusara yoga in Thailand, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and Taipei and earned Yoga Alliance International Certification. Jee now specializes in teaching, and training teachers, in yin yoga. She has completed an extensive teacher training course and commits to yearly study in yin yoga and yoga philosophy with Paul Grilley, known for developing yin yoga. Jee's teaching of group classes and teacher trainings is rooted in years of practice and study of a diverse range of yoga styles, functional anatomy, meditation, and yoga philosophy. She teaches with great attention to detail, an individualized approach, and a dose of humor.
