Afro Flow Yoga® offers in-person and virtual classes, workshops, retreats, discussions, and teacher training programs.

Jeff W. Jones is a professional engineer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, composer, and musical director who has traveled the world with musical greats including Little Richard, Al Green, and Zap Mama, to name just a few.

Through music, Jeff creates an intuitive flow with mastery and his inspired use of an eclectic array of tonal instruments ground and center the yoga practice.
Leslie and Jeff have also co-facilitated the Mind Body program at the Cory Johnson Trauma Education Program, offering a safe space for people to share their stories of trauma, healing, hope and recovery. They are passionate about intergenerational, multi-cultural empowerment, education, healing, spirituality, and the wellness of all whom they serve.
