Neesha is a Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor. This form of Hatha yoga, developed by John Friend, is a combination of life affirming philosophy and balanced action informed by the breath and physical alignment principles.
Neesha Zollinger’s yoga embraces intentionality: cultivating skills and virtues to empower the yoga practitioner to become the person that he or she wants to be both on and off the mat. The results are freedom in the body, mind and heart, with a more expansive perspective of life. A former professional dancer, Neesha is a certified Anusara Yoga instructor, which combines Hatha Yoga, life-affirming philosophy and balanced action informed by the breath and physical alignment principles.
Neesha grew up in Logan, Utah and Chewelah, Washington. Her studies included dance, and soil science and environmental studies at Southern Utah University and Utah State University where she graduated cum laude. She began her formal training in yoga 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 23 years and a teacher for 14, 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.
