DT 013: Practice Checking In with Jared McCann

Jared McCann is an international yoga teacher, two time national and 2013 world asana champion. He has studied yoga extensively with Dharma Mittra, Anna Forrest, and Mary Jarvis and has decades of practice in Ashtanga, Bikram, Dharma, Forrest, and Iyengar yoga combining all disciplines together in his signature vinyasa series. Jared is the founder of Lighthouse Yoga School in Brooklyn, New York. He leads teacher trainings year round and can be found teaching classes at home and across the globe.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Jared on:

  • The words Jared’s guru (his grandmother, Honey) spoke to him to pull him out of an existential crisis during which nothing in life mattered
  • How yoga asana complicated his childhood meditation practice, and how asana can prepare all of us for the challenges of life and death
  • Deciding when to “wake the sleeping” and when to be patient and allow people to have their own process
  • Why Jared decided to open a yoga studio, even though he believed it was a poor business decision
