During this 8 day training in Hilo you will learn and practice homework exercises designed to deepen yoga postures.

This JFC will be led by JJ Garcia and Garland Hume.

His first Jedi fight Club was in 2012.JJ has participated in the past 5 USA yoga national championships, placing in the top 4 each year. JJ is from a yoga family; his mother was in Bikram’s first ever teacher training, and Esak is his older brother.

Garland is the founder and director of hot yoga Kauai, the President of USA Yoga, and has been teaching yoga full time since 2007. She has been a yoga athlete on the USA Yoga platform since 2009.  She has attended countless trainings, workshops, and classes with Esak Garcia, including over 16 JFC trainings. Garland has placed as a top 10 finalist for USA Yoga for the past 5 years. Although she loves practicing yoga for sport, Garland is most passionate about the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga, as well as its rich history.

This JFC is not a competitor’s only training, and therefore you do not need to have any prior competition experience, or an intention to compete.

Additional information

Although there’s no minimum level of ability required, in order to fully participate, you should be ready to practice 2 hot classes per day, plus additional training hours. In other words, you will be expected to arrive with a good level of fitness, but it doesn’t matter what you’re able to do in terms of postures.  What matters most is that spending your entire week doing yoga and training is fun and exciting to you, and that you’re up for the challenge. Your willingness to participate, and to take a step forward from wherever you are now, is much more important than your current ability.
