Get to Know Neesha Zollinger
A former professional dancer, Neesha is a certified Anusara Yoga instructor, which combines Hatha Yoga, life-affirming philosophy and balanced action and physical alignment principles. Neesha is committed to both advancing a playful practice through fundamentals of accurate movement as well as the therapeutic benefits of clear alignment. She works extensively with all ends of the spectrum of people in their practice.
Neesha grew up in Logan, Utah and Chewelah, Washington. Her studies included dance, soil science and environmental studies at Southern Utah University and Utah State University where she graduated cum laude. She began her formal yoga training in 1991 and has been teaching regularly with blessings from her teacher, Terrie Lauterbach-Cotts since 1999. After moving to Jackson, Wyoming, she met Margot Snowdon who introduced her to Anusara Yoga and became her primary mentor.
A student of yoga for 24 years and a teacher for 16, Neesha has traveled around the world offering retreats, teacher training, immersions and workshops. Today, Neesha is owner and operator of Akasha Yoga in Jackson Hole. As a new mother, she finds that the most effective yoga is that done with her daughter, Stella. Neesha is a huge fan of the quick handstand—which never fails to make Stella laugh and refresh her own perspective.
