About The Owners

Jess & Jered (and their little fur baby, Zeus) have spent their spare time exploring and traveling. They are nature-loving folks who are passionate about helping others as well as the environment.

How The Dream Started

In their travels they have found their purpose, their place in the world (more of that later). Jered is a “tech guy” and does everything from designing and coding websites to SEO (tech mumbo jumbo = search engine optimization). He is also handy, creative, and very adventurous! He enjoys hiking, biking, and cliff jumping. Jess, on the other hand, is interested in psychology, health, and wellness. She continues to study the brain and psychology. She also enjoys the outdoors. Her goal in life is to optimize her well-being as well as anyone she crosses paths with! They both love extending their hands to help others and Mother Earth.

Jess started her journey in health and well-being over a decade ago when she took her first yoga class and just fell in love! She took a teaching training in September of 2009. She is so passionate about learning and growing she has taken thousands of hours yoga teacher training and mental health workshops and classes to enrich herself to be able to enlighten others.

They started The Twisted Willow Studio to provide affordable yoga to all by offering the pay what you want/pay what you can philosophy. What does that mean? It means you pick the price. The price that is appropriate it for your budget. Jess started using this philosophy so no one feels left out. She still teaches and provides online classes or local classes to those in Southern Oregon.

So, now they have merged their passions with their entrepreneur spirits and have established Yoga is Lyfe. Yoga is Lyfe is a brand that represents Loving Yourself For Eternity (Lyfe). Jess & Jered have made it their mission in life to spread love and kindness. They have learned that what comes from within is the most important. You must love, accept, and heal anything that needs healing from within first. They believe one must love themselves fully!

Lyfe = Love Yourself For Eternity

Their vision is to grow Yoga is Lyfe to be able to open a local facility to help those in need then later to open more facilities around the country. These facilities would provide wrap around services, services like clothing, providing food, counseling, well-being, exercise classes, and training courses.

As the consumer, you will choose a nonprofit organization to donate part of your purchase to. Each quarter, Yoga is Lyfe will be donating 10% of their profits to a nonprofit organization. These organizations will assist to help those in need. Each quarter will be a different nonprofit, the goal is to provide assistance to as many organizations as possible. Each organization is vetted to ensure the money goes to the cause and not administration costs.

You can even give suggestions for nonprofit organizations you would like to see donations go! Just send them an email at yogalyfe4u@gmail.com saying why you pick this organization and a link to their website. They are all about supporting others too, so if you are interested in collaborating with them or have any questions you are invited to send them a message.
