Jimi is the original self-proclaimed Modosapien. Originally from his mother, the native Texan has called Austin his home for the last 16 years. He found the Modo mat in the fall of 2015 while commuting through Midtown Commons on his unicycle. He was originally drawn to the “Calm Mind, Fit Body, and Inspired Life” signage on the front door, but it was the strong sense of community, pillar based practice, and free heat that kept him coming back. Jimi believes in a well balanced playful life of simplicity, health, and connection. He has a strong athletic and teaching background and holds a B.S. in Kinesiology and a M. Ed. in Child Development. He completed his 500 hour Yoga teacher training in Kelowna, B.C. in the summer of 2016 and continues to deepen his practice with every exhale. In the real world, he works with local schools and communities to run his non-profit organization One Wheel Many Children.
