It's always been a natural part of our relationship to talk about and process yoga...it's a natural weaving in and out of our lives. We have this conversation and we share this passion and it informs the way we communicate with each other. It informs the way we communicate with the world.
Yoga has been a through-line since we first met in 2002 at Yoga Journal, where Jason was a staff teacher and Andrea was an editor.
It’s a conversation that we started over long lunches and continues to this day as we try to raise our nine-year-old daughter with as much presence, humor, and openness as possible.
For both of us, yoga has been an invaluable tool for a deeper and clearer relationship to ourselves, to each other, and to the world around us. This simple yet potent practice of moving the body mindfully, attuning to the breath, and watching the workings of the mind continues to set the foundation for our lives. In the work that we do, we hope to offer you that same clarity, insight, and connection.
Jason Crandell is a natural teacher and author with more than 20 years of experience. Named “one of the teachers shaping the future of yoga,” by Yoga Journal, Jason has been an in-demand teacher at conferences around the world for more than a decade. Considered a teacher’s teacher, Jason has taught on countless teacher training faculties, leads trainings globally, and regularly presents teacher training content at esteemed conferences. Jason’s primary teacher is Rodney Yee—who was kind enough to say, “Jason is taking the art of teaching yoga to its next level.”
For the past 10 years, Jason has honed his approach by looking to peers outside of the yoga community, in the fields of physical therapy, orthopedics, traumatology, and sports medicine. These collaborative partnerships have enabled Jason to offer the most up-to-date to asana technique, cueing, injury management, and hands-on adjustments. Jason’s goal is to blend the timeless wisdom of yoga philosophy with evidence-based information to create yoga curriculum that helps modern practitioners grow and evolve.
Andrea Ferretti started practicing yoga in the 1990s, after having spent many years as a dancer. During that time Andrea was hired to code HTML for a small website called Women’s Wire. In her four years there, Women’s Wire became Women.com and went public, the company grew from 15 employees to more than 300, and Andrea got to produce websites for Prevention Magazine and New Woman, as well as create original content.
After finishing her 200-hour teacher training with Sarah Powers in 2002, Andrea joined the staff as an editor at Yoga Journal. In her decade-long tenure there, she interviewed some of the greatest American yoga teachers of our time like Lilias Folan and Maty Ezraty, she coached cover models like Shiva Rea and Kathryn Budig on-set, and she honed her editorial skills by editing celebrated writers like Sally Kempton.
These days, Andrea’s goal is to bring all that she’s learned from her own practice, her experience as a mother, and her deep immersion with some of the greatest teachers of our time to help others. Through her podcast, her courses, and her writing, Andrea encourages others to cultivate their own inner resources so that they can live fully, compassionately, and with a sense of humor.
