José Espinosa

José was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in 2010 by his mother Gail and her teacher Valerie Schneiderman. In 2015, he found his yoga home at The Shala and in 2022 he completed their 200-hour teacher training program under the guidance of Kristin Leigh and Barbara Verrochi. A graduate of Yale School of Drama, José is keenly interested in the integration of mind, body and breath and in transformative practices of peace. He is grateful to all of his teachers and to the diverse, creative community at The Shala.
