Jason PRess Pic.tiff

Jason Samel is the owner of Buddha Jams Yoga and our headlining artist. He is a RYT 200 certified yoga teacher trained in Vinyasa by Always at Aum yoga school. He is also a record producer, musician, and activist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry.

Jason’s journey with yoga began in 2020, when the COVID pandemic shook the world and forced him to confront his past traumas and depression. He was 5’6" tall and weighed nearly 250 pounds, and felt hopeless and lost. One day, he decided to sit on a beach, breathe, stretch, and look within. That was the moment he fell in love with yoga and meditation, and never looked back.

In just six months, Jason transformed his life with yoga and meditation. He practiced for at least two hours every day, and lost 75 pounds. He also gained physical, emotional, and spiritual strength, clarity, and joy. He realized that yoga was not only a way to heal himself, but also a way to help others. He decided to become a yoga teacher and share his passion and wisdom with the world.

Jason’s yoga classes are fun, creative, and inspiring. He combines traditional and modern elements of yoga, and infuses his classes with music, poetry, and philosophy. He believes that yoga is not only a physical practice, but also a spiritual and emotional one. He encourages his students to find their own authentic expression of yoga, and to cultivate a deeper connection with themselves and the world around them.

Jason is excited to be a lead trainer at Buddha Jams Soul School, and to mentor the next generation of yoga teachers. He is looking forward to meeting you and guiding you on your journey of transformation and growth.

Kristina c.png

Kristina's journey through the practice of yoga has been an exploration of the places where science and spirit meet.  She believes it is every human BE-ing's birthright to live a life of joy, purpose, and greatest potential.

With over two decades of study, trainings, and immersion, ​Kristina received her YTT-200 Vinyasa Yoga certification in 2014 with Dana Flynn at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center NYC and KRI Kundalini Yoga certification in 2016 with master yogi Hari Kaur  Khalsa at HariNYC. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field of education and is certified to teach kids yoga.


Through the practice of yoga, deep pranayama and meditation, sound therapies, poetry, music, mythology, and storytelling, the yoga experiences Kristina creates help transport students to portals within themselves waiting for entrance. Safe containers for self-study, deep relaxation and life healing are benefits of this practice.  It is her privilege to guide students to discover and cultivate their own inner flame and promote true benefits to the body, mind, and spirit.
