Coming from a background of playing competitive sports from a young age, Andre was ready
and accepted the physical challenges yoga had presented him. Soon after pursuing a regular yogapractice, he began to understand the struggle to balance competitive drive with respect for the body’s limits. Before long, he found peace, clarity, and stillness in his practice and is intrigued by the mind-body connection yoga has to offer. He believes yoga has a way of giving you what you want, but at the same time also what you need. Jackie Ibañez Jackie began her yoga journey in 2009 at CVYC after graduating from high school.
