Keith Jacobson - Yoga teacher/Co-owner
Keith began practicing yoga in 2008 because he had health problems due to years of working long hours in stressful jobs. He realised a lifestyle change was desperately needed. He missed his young, ambitious, active self and yearned for a quality lifestyle. A year later his daughter introduced him to the practice of Astanga yoga at Yoga Space West Perth and he was immediately hooked into this ancient practice. It initiated in Keith the physical and spiritual connection he had been looking for and in 2011 began his journey to become a yoga teacher. Keith graduated early 2012 and is Certified Hatha Vinyasa Teacher, Yoga Australia Registered Level 1 Teacher.
During his teacher training it became clear to Keith where his journey was heading and he wanted to teach yoga and share the health benefits. He is specialised teaching yoga to seniors and has completed further courses in Yin and Yin Yang yoga.
Having experienced damaged spinal health, injuries, sickness and dealing with their associated challenges deepens Keith’s understanding and compassion of how people may struggle with health in their daily lives. The benefits of yoga has given him a quality of life to be a better person to those who inspire him the most, and improved his relationships as a husband, father and friend.
Keith is married to a wonderful woman, has 2 loving adult children and 3 amazing grandchildren. Keith is following a dream occupation… giving goodness to people.
Keith and Tammy are both members and registered yoga teachers with Yoga Australia. They are committed to their continuing personal and professional development, self-study and yoga practice.
