Hi! I’m Jess…
I initially found yoga through my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practice in 2016. I had every intention of beginning my practice with the purpose of increasing flexibility in order to be more efficient in BJJ. Prior to my YTT, I had only practiced yoga 3 times in college and had very little knowledge in the art. Little did I know, yoga would change my entire trajectory of life. Through yoga, I was able to connect with (and trust) the freedom in my heart to dive headfirst into my aspirations. After I finished my YTT, I left my career in technology and began living my life according to my dharma or life’s vocation.
I completed my YTT in 2016 at Bella Prana with Marley Vigdorth, Roni Sloman, and Shelly Happel. In 2017, I completed an additional 100 hours of training with Marley Vigdorth.
I am currently enrolled in an 800hr Yoga Therapy Certification Program with Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. Upon completion of this program, I will be a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. This program will enable me to offer students and clients wholistic healing rooted in the integration of physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental health.
I am also currently mentoring with Gretchen Hickmott in High Sense Perception training. Through this mentorship, I am learning: how to receive and interpret messages from Spirit; how to open, receive, and engage in Akashic Records; and how to utilize astrology for greater healing. This work is enabling me to be more in tune with my own meditation practice, as well as deepen my understanding of the energies of the universe.
Drawn to a vinyasa practice filled with a heart-centered intention, I love sharing the ancient practice of yoga with yogis of all skill-levels. My classes are Bhakti in nature: dynamic vinyasa with yogic philosophy, mantra, and meditation infused throughout. I encourage students to embrace both the physical practice of yoga and the unlimited mental benefits of the art. Although I specialize in vinyasa, I also teach beginners and restorative classes.
