Jodi Blumstein has been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 1994, and has a profound connection to the practice. After studying under the world's premiere instructors (including Sri K. Pattabhi Jois), she founded Priya Yoga, Chicago's first Ashtanga/vinyasa yoga school, and served as their director for eight years.

Jodi holds a space for students that is solid and reverent, while maintaining a level of levity, play, and humor. She is a teacher's teacher, and yet each student feels her precise attention, especially as they are at pivotal points in their practice. She encourages students to explore their edges both on and off the mat, and facilitates transformation in both arenas.

Jodi lives in Los Angeles, where she has been running the Mysore program for YogaWorks at the Center for Yoga since 2004. She also hosts exclusive Ashtanga retreats at her home, led by some of the worlds premier Ashtanga teachers.
