Meet Your Teachers
JESSICA BELLOFATTO, lead SUP Yoga TT instructor, has been studying and teaching the art and science of Yoga for over 20 years. Originally certified in the Jivamutki method, she has spent the past couple of decades studying many styles of yoga and evolving her practice and teaching skills. She recently closed her brick and mortar studio on the east end of Long Island, New York, to focus primarily on yoga retreats, teacher trainings, and of course, her passion of SUP Yoga. As an avid waterwoman, she is one of the original pioneers of SUP Yoga, an ambassador for BOGA boards, Werner Paddles, and Mi Ola Surf bathing suits, among others. Jessica teaches several SUP yoga teacher trainings throughout the year in the Hamptons, NY and in Tulum, Mexico. Her retreats around the world combine stand up paddling, SUP yoga, and traditional asana practice with a strong focus on alignment—all the while encouraging her students to live by her motto “Just Be You!”
CIARA MCCORMACK, assistant SUP Yoga TT instructor, has been teaching yoga for over 3 years, with a strong background in Hatha/Vinyasa. She is certified in SUP Yoga, is WPA Level 1 Certified through JBYoga, and is an Ambassador for BOGA YOGA boards. After completing her B.S. in Nutrition and Food Science, Ciara always knew that she was not meant to follow a "traditional" path to find a career, which is when she decided to combine her passion to be outdoors & practice yoga to create OM Flow SUP Yoga. She is a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur, and an inspiration for those cultivating the courage to chase dreams while manifesting the mantra “empowerment through practice”.
AccomModation & Transportation On Maui
Accommodation & transportation are not included in the tuition cost for SUP Yoga Teacher Training. There are many options for accommodation on the South side of the island that you are able to choose from depending on your personal budget and lodging preferences. We will be meeting for class in the Kihei/Wailea area, so it will be best to book accommodation nearby.
Transportation will need to be arranged individually, and a car rental is highly recommended to get around the island. Car rentals are available online or through the airport. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on accommodation & budget car rental options on island.
