Jeff fell in love with the physical and spiritual intelligence of yoga in his hometown of Gunnison, CO. He went on to develop a diverse background in the practice including Iyengar, Vinyasa and Yin. All have led perfectly to his discovery of Kaiut Yoga, the method he currently teaches and practices. He has an appreciation for the power of yoga as a healing meditation—an element that often finds its way into his classes. Jeff has found that with a curious, self-accepting approach, yoga can heal almost anything.
Jeff is RYT 500 certified. He holds two 200-hour teacher certifications, and one 300-hour certification. He heads up Yoga Loft’s Teacher Training programs. As a trained Rolfer, Jeff has a practical understanding of the body—how it can injure and then heal, and how compensatory patterns can be reprogramed through yoga and meditation for greater comfort and joy. While Jeff has studied with a variety of Yoga teachers over the years, he is most inspired by Brazilian yoga pioneer, Francisco Kaiut. Along with his wife, Dr. Lori Kemmet, Jeff is the proud owner of Yoga Loft in Boulder, Colorado, home to Kaiut Yoga teacher training, USA!
Heidi Philip started practicing yoga in 2007. She was first introduced to Francisco and Kaiut Yoga in February 2015. Since then she has returned to Colorado whenever Francisco has been there and travels to Brazil twice a year to study under him. Heidi is a certified Kaiut Yoga instructor and has been teaching Kaiut yoga since July 2016.
