SAM JACOBS

Chief Product Officer & Teacher

Creative. Fiery. Egg-Headed.

Music Style: Soul, Old School Hip Hop, R&B

Sam’s intellect, anatomy prowess, and creative sequences will leave no question as to why she is Ritual’s Chief Product Officer. She was the first full-time teacher hired at Ritual Hot Yoga and has been heavily involved in teacher trainings and development of Ritual’s offerings ever since.

Before coming to Ritual, Sam graduated from Yale Law School and later worked as a public defender for men and women on death row in Louisiana and California. Sam has been teaching and practicing yoga for eight years and training teachers in studios across the Bay Area for the last seven years. She practices Ashtanga yoga and after receiving her 200 Hour Certification, attended several advanced alignment and anatomy trainings.

Sam’s movement background includes training as ballet dancer and teaching Spinning classes. Students will see the grace, vigor, and musicality of both those endeavors at Ritual. Sam is also pursuing her Master’s Degree in Writing and students are immersed in her passion for stories because of the way she sequences movements of the body and weaves powerful intentions for the mind into the physical practice.
