Team

Yada Yada Yoga was founded over 16 years ago by Jessica Gordon. With a mission to create a lifestyle agency comprised of the top therapists, instructors, trainers, and chefs (just to name a few) for the Entertainment and Sports industries across California and New York. In 2021, Jessica decided to step down as President and CEO to watch the company grow with new leadership. She is still an integral part of the company and community as she continues to advise and be a part of Yada Yada Yoga's continued success as our Brand Ambassador.

Mike Packman

Owner & CEO

Mike has acquired Yada Yada Yoga as his personal growth throughout his own wellness journey has left him deeply passionate and motivated to find opportunities where he can give back and positively impact others' lives. Mike’s wellness journey began in 2012 when he went to India with Tony Robbins. Mike had never meditated prior to this trip but as it was a life-changing experience, he implemented the practice and within two years, Mike was meditating every day. A few years later, Mike took another trip which left him feeling the most awakened and enlightened he had been in his life. It was because of this experience that Mike added a regular yoga practice to his daily wellness regime and it is now Mike's belief that through regular health and wellness practices, such as yoga and meditation, we can elevate our consciousness in effort to contribute back to ourselves and society exponentially.
 

Mike is also the founder of Keystone National Properties. Mike began his career more than twenty-five years ago in the finance industry. In 2003, Mike formed his own diversified financial company, which he successfully exited. After the downturn in 2008, he became involved in the real estate space, initially focusing heavily on 1031 exchanges. He is also the co-founder of Bundlefi, a financial technology start-up where he serves as Vice-Chairman and COO. Mike speaks at large and small events, including nationally recognized family office and other business conferences. He has shared the stage with world-renowned business leaders, including Tony Robbins. Mike is the 1031 expert contributor for the New York Real Estate Journal and has been featured in the Real Deal.
