Jasper Trout has been pursuing an active, athletic lifestyle from his early years growing up in the Napa Valley. Participating in organized sports and exploring the natural world on hikes and adventures has kept Jasper busy over the years. Nearly fifteen years ago, on the beach in San Francisco, he was exposed to yoga for the first time and taken by its emphasis on a slow, conscious path toward physical, mental and spiritual integration and health. Jasper was trained and certified to teach yoga in 2011. He has been leading outdoor hiking and yoga classes as well as bringing his personal teaching style to students in studios and health clubs in Napa since that time.
