Jacoby has taught workshops, received residencies, and given talks at the request of many high schools, colleges, and universities around the country, applying the wisdom of yoga and Buddhism to the needs of students, staff and faculty. He commonly teaches about compassion and forgiveness, works with activists around self- and community-care, works with student leaders around the inner and interpersonal skills necessary for effective leadership, and with queer communities around strength, courage, and resilience. Jacoby has also designed specific workshops on campuses for National Eating Disorder week, Coming Out Week, and LGBT Health Week, and would be happy to design something specifically tailored to the needs of your school.

If you would like to request a booking, please contact Jacoby.
