Jessica found the practice of yoga in 2006 during college when she attended her first class at a local recreation center. Realizing yoga was so much more than just a workout, she became dedicated to deepening her study of the practice. After several years of a consistent Hatha Yoga practice, Jessica began exploring the path of meditation and mindfulness, learning from teachers such as Louise Hay and Wayne Dwyer. Yoga and meditation provided Jessica with tools to help manage stress and shift patterns, ultimately leading to profound personal transformation.
After over a decade of pursuing her personal practice, in 2016 Jessica completed her 200 hour teacher training program at Gilbert Yoga under the tutelage of Cassandra Bright. It was here that she discovered the missing piece to her yoga and meditation practice, Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, love and presence. Bhakti Yoga inspires Jessica to focus on the present moment and witness the divine in all things; both of which strongly influence her teaching style.
Offering a heart centered practice with mindful sequencing, sustainable alignment cues and purposeful pranayama (breathwork), Jessica’s accessible classes are great for yoga practitioners of all levels. Jessica’s intention is to facilitate connection, promote awareness and support one’s self-inquiry through a functional yoga and meditation practice. Jessica’s genuine light and laughter is contagious, and by creating a playful space to explore she encourages others to be lead by joy both on and off the mat.
