Is there anything sexier than a man who’s built like a Greek god AND has the emotional intelligence that most of us dream a man could possess? I didn’t think so. And that’s why I’m thrilled to present to you this week’s #mancrushmoday, Jeremy Falk.
A yoga guru, dedicated philanthropist and volunteer and self professed hopeless romantic, Jeremy is pretty much any gal’s dream come true. With a Bachelors degree in Psychology, Jeremy hs dedicated much of his life to transforming stressed out human doings into balanced human beings. In his youth he played soccer with his inhaler tucked in his shorts, focusing on movement as his lifeline to overcome limitations. After working for seven years as a NASM certified personal trainer, he sought to expand his practice holistically by studying wellness. His intentions took him on a transformative journey that spanned 14 countries in 12 months, taking him to the edges of the Indian Himalayas where he became dedicated to and certified in teaching Yoga. On top of helping people through fitness and movement, Jeremy has spent countless hours helping others through social work. He has volunteered for earthquake relief in Haiti, worked as a victim’s advocate / crisis interventionist in Arizona, and currently supports Headstand, a local San Francisco non-profit that empowers at-risk youth to combat toxic stress through mindfulness and yoga. Jeremy is also a Lululemon Ambassador, a position that lets him create community events where people can sweat and smile together. Currently Jeremy is part of the founding team of mindfresh, a startup which makes yoga and meditation accessible to busy professionals during the work day, without needing gym clothes or even breaking a sweat. And if you’re lucky enough tbe joining us on the first Evoke Passion Project trip to Costa Rica, you’ll get to experience Jeremy’s talented yoga teachings and winning personality for yourself. If that’s not a reason to join up ladies, then I don’t know what is!
Take a read below and prepare to blush, smile and swoon!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Her presence, how aware and in-tune she is with her environment and subtle energies; the way she commands a room when she enters. Other things my eyes tend to get caught on are brunettes, boots, and soft threads. A sexy outfit has to be huggable.
What is your ideal first date?
We’d start with a yoga practice, to feel our energies before the biographical details. I’d bear silent witness as she would be lost in herself rather than me, confident and comfortable. We would gather much information about each other this way. After, we’d get dressed up for a spicy cocktail by a world renowned mixologist in a high rise bar and would be laughing a lot. We’d build on the conversation by dancing wildly to sexy bass music before hopping in a private jet bound for the mountains with our snowboards. We’d ride for hours in fresh powder through the back country and we’d end up cuddling by a fire, listening to Van Morrison!
What’s your instant deal breaker?
Ambition, wellness, and curiosity are important to me. A deal breaker would be someone who is lazy and too lost in the small details of life to be awestruck with cosmic curiosity on a daily basis. There is more to the world than meets the eye, as there is more to each of us than meets the eye. If that doesn’t move you to look beyond the obvious we probably will have limited conversations.
What’s the strangest thing you have ever done to get a love interest’s attention?
This may be the strangest one of all time but I’ll go with it. As a kid I had big ears and was pretty self conscious about them. When I was around a girl I liked, I actually learned how to engage the ear muscles to pull them in closer to my head. Pretty ridiculous, but now I can wiggle my ears independently!
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
It’s a quote from a picture frame at my parents’ house with one of their best photos. “True love doesn’t consist of gazing into each other’s eyes, but in gazing outward in the same direction together.” It resonates with me because I believe romance will thrive in a partnership where there are clear individual aspirations that support a common vision, where each person is mentally and physically elevating and stimulating the other, rather than getting lost in a codependency. Of course, I want to look in her eyes all the time, too.
Excuse me while I mop up the puddle I just turned into. If you’re single in San Francisco then make sure to look Jeremy up. If not, then snap up one of the last available spots on the Evoke Passion Project trip! Just head over to their website
