 I am Jacob Patrick Ellis,

creator of Solutions For Evolution. 

My dream is to awaken as many people as possible to the all pervasive power that moves us all…Love

           I’m a yoga teacher, soul shaker, and dream weaver from the Philadelphia area. It is my mission to help you dive deeply into your true self and assist you in discovering your natural power to create a life you absolutely Love. I use the ancient art and philosophy of yoga to achieve these miraculous feats. Solutions for Evolution is the foundation where you can find all of my teachings, healing’s and creations.

All of my life I’ve had a deep aspiration to develop new skills and challenge myself mentally and physically. One of the ‘biggest influences along my life path has been wrestling. I began wrestling when I was just five years old and later in life coached at the middle school level for five years. I guess you could say coaching/wrestling really stimulated my passion to help individuals evolve while also becoming the best person I could possibly be. Whether it was on the wrestling mat or perfecting my kick-flip on my skateboard, I grew up with a serious ambition to constantly expand who I was and what I was capable of doing. With this strong dose of determination for success I was confident I would be able to fulfill all of my desires as matured.

However, once I graduated High School the intimidating reality struck me that I would have to decide what I was going to do for the rest of my life and figure out how I was going to fulfill this prophecy. Stress began to accumulate and eventually led to overwhelming feelings of anxiety.

This was about the time my Yoga Journey Began. I was a college student at the moment and can remember being up late one night in a deep desperate inquiry about life. I found myself asking

Who am I and why am I here?


 If I can’t be happy then what is the point of all this (life)?

I was in a sacred search to find more passion and purpose in my life. I was desperate yet determined to seek an answer to these provoking questions. Thankfully this inner quest that led me to drop out of college and eventually find yoga, what I consider my true calling in life.

I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training under the Amma Yanni Yoga Center in 2014. Since then I’ve been on a mission to assist individuals in creating a life they love while realizing their unlimited potential. My passion is to aid you in the discovery that you can be, do and have whatever you desire in life. So whether it’s teaching you how to hold a solid handstand, or guiding you to manifest the life of your dreams, it is an absolute joy of mine to support you in your process of transformation.

I decided to name my site and services Solutions For Evolution because I believe that each of us are the missing solution to this planets evolution.  And only when you make the bold decision to investigate the deepest aspects of yourself can you truly heal and contribute to the healing of this world. My wish is to guide as many people as possible to become the highest version of themselves while unifying in the name of Love, ultimately becoming a Solution for this planets Evolution!


Currently I offer daily yoga classes and workshops in the Philadelphia area, as well as assisting retreats in the tropics over the winter months. You can connect with me by email, catch one of my local classes/workshops or follow along my winter travels by subscribing to Solutions for Evolution.
