In our efforts to make this the best platform for all your mind/body needs, we are proud to announce the addition of Josh Mathew-Meier (Instagram: @yoga_jamm) to the squad.
A long time colleague, Josh's unquestioned work ethic, dedication to being a perpetual student and skillful approach to instructing elevates the platform and fortifies the team of teachers.
At a young age, Josh always had an interest in movement as a form of expression. He went on to get his BFA in Musical Theatre and when he arrived in NYC in 2005, he started his yoga journey. His classes "[create] a safe, healthy environment for the exploration and play of dynamic asana... weaving the depths of ancient philosophy with the demands of modern life, allowing for a yogic approach to any situation the every day might present."
Let's get to know Josh in this week's 'Teacher Feature'
QUESTION: What is your favorite yoga pose/why?
JOSH: "My favorite yoga pose is headstand, mostly just because I love being inverted, but also because of the strength and focus required in finding a moment of quietude when my entire world is literally flipped upside down."
Q: What is your least favorite pose right now/why?
JOSH: "I find it hard to qualify a "least" favorite because I'm always seeking how to challenge myself to not judge the moment, but rather live in the pose with a sense of how it serves me, and in turn, how I serve it. With all that said, I rarely practice shoulder-stand outside of an Iyengar practice."
Q: What lessons from the yoga mat have you applied off your mat?
JOSH: "Ahimsa (non-violence) and Samtosha (contentment) I find to be the most applicable, in that I try and see every person as a reflection of myself, and that this moment is all I've got. Being kind to everyone I come in contact with and every experience I'm presented helps me find grace in my movements through the world."
Q: Do you have a guilty pleasure/binged watch anything etc., during quarantine?
JOSH: "I took a week in March and watched the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe chronologically from the first Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame. I also can sit down with Bob's Burgers and Schitt's Creek for hours on end."
Q: What is your post-class meal craving?
JOSH: "I keep a pretty structured diet, and generally coming out of class I want something light and nutritious. My always-craving is chocolate, in any form it's presented. I can't get enough!!"
