Jerrod Smith was introduced to yoga while vacationing on a beach in the Bahamas. One class was all that it took for him to realize the significant difference yoga makes in helping to find inner peace and to live a richer life. Jerrod’s asana practice has an Astanga influence and his energetic practices are from a Kundalini Tantric tradition. His classes are typically a heated vinyasa flow with plenty of sun salutations and elements of power mixed in.
Jerrod is a Yoga Therapy Practitioner holding a 500 hour certification from YOGAspirit® Studios and is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher 500 (RYT® 500.) He is currently enrolled in the YOGAspirit® 800 hour master healing therapies apprenticeship studying tantric healing techniques with Kim Valeri. In addition, he has taken workshops with David Swenson, Barbara Benagh, Anna Forrest and many others.
Jerrod’s asana and meditation practices keep him steady and balanced to go onto the battlefield as founder and principal production designer of his firm, Designsmith Collaborative®.
