RYT 500, E-RYT 200
Jason began his yoga journey in 2003, when he started attending Bikram classes at a local studio in San Francisco. He enjoyed the physical challenge of the classes, and soon found that all aspects of his life were improving: he looked and felt healthier, his emotional life improved, and the spiritual aspect of his being started to thrive. Jason received his RYT-200 certificate at Maui Hot Yoga in 2012, and his RYT-500 at Sampoorna Yoga in Goa, India in 2016. His classes are dynamic and creative, and he works to ensure that all students can thrive, whether they are beginners or long-time practitioners. Every class is unique, and Jason incorporates elements of yoga philosophy, pranayama, and meditation techniques into his classes as well.
Jason is the owner and head instructor of Mystic Monkey Yoga.
Jason Calsyn instructs the following:
Hot Hatha Yoga - 75 minutes
These classes consist of static postures held for longer periods of time. Students gain balance, flexibility, strength, and confidence in these classes. Each instructor incorporates their own training and background into their teaching, so you can expect to learn something new each time you step into the room. The room temperature for our Hatha classes will be between 100 and 102 degrees.
Hot Vinyasa - 75 Minutes
Vinyasa classes are a bit faster-paced, and place great emphasis on pranayama (breath control). These classes may be more aerobically challenging, but will rapidly build strength and flexibility. It is recommended that you have at least a few classes’ worth of experience in other classes before taking this class. The temperature for this class will be set to 95 degrees, but you will sweat just as much as in our hotter classes!
Warm Yoga Flow - 75 minutes
These classes are flowing and intuitive, and sequenced dynamically and with intention. They are therapeutic and challenging, and suitable for all levels. The room is a little cooler for these classes -- a comfortably warm 85 degrees.
Everyone is welcome in all our classes, but if you're unsure of the heat, this might be a good class to start with.
Yin Yoga - 75 minutes
Yin Yoga is a more restful practice involving holding postures for a long period of time to allow the muscles and connective tissues to release. This is a more passive form of yoga which uses gravity and the shapes of the poses to achieve the effect, rather than more active engagement. It is a very relaxing and calming practice and a perfect way to end the day.
