Jack changed my life. His classes are very powerful and a wonderful way to take care of my physical, mental and spiritual health. There is magic in the air when he gently guides us through our asanas and every time there is a breakthrough as someone does “the impossible” asana. He has made me confront my fears so many times that I have forgotten how to be afraid. No fear, how liberating is that!
He is such an encouraging teacher that after struggling for many years, I finally let go of anxiety, self-doubt and limiting beliefs and my LIFE began! Thank you Jack for being who you are and keep your light shining bright! Thank you for believing in me!
Happy Jack takes yoga retreat and personal growth to another level! The retreat is more than just breathing and stretching exercises – he helps you grow into becoming a warrior in how you conduct your life. He pushes you to the very edge of your comfort zone, challenges you to take the plunge and confront your greatest fears, and he empowers you to confidently adopt a new way of being consistent with your intention.
Jack exemplifies the embodiment of authenticity and commitment to manifest one’s dream into becoming reality. I witnessed everything that Jack stood for in person and as he succeeded in achieving them, I became inspired to do the work and experienced transformation in my own life. I got my return on investment in hundred thousand fold of good Karma. Thank you Jack!!
