I remember the first time I met Jason Winn very clearly.
He had come to our training, and described how at his studio (now closed) he taught all his students to align their mats, water-bottles and fold their towels so that the yoga room would be organized.
From that moment, I decided I loved him.
Jason was one of my favorite guest teachers at teacher training; he was tough, precise, knowledgeable and incredibly humble.
“When a student has a good class, always remember: it is not about you, it is about the yoga.” Jason Winn
Last week, I read this heart-breaking statement released by YogaJasonWinn.com :
Jason Winn senior Bikram Yoga teacher, is known and loved by many students and teachers throughout the world. Over the last few years Jason conducted Bikram Yoga workshops and retreats all around the globe. Unfortunately, Jason was in the hospital last year with double pneumonia for a few months and has not been able to work since February 2009. He has been recovering in Austin, but recently had a relapse and needs financial assistance to get treatment.
Jason’s sister has set up a pay-pal account to help cover his health-care costs, you can also mail cheques by following the link below.
Jason is an invaluable member of the yoga community, please support him in any way you can.
