Jess began practicing yoga nearly ten years ago. As a lifelong dancer and athlete, she first experienced yoga as rehab for an old dance injury. She fell in love with the balance between body, mind, breath and the potential to ground and release excess energy back into the world. Jessica received her 200RYT in the winter of 2013 after completing Teacher Training at Frog Pond Yoga Center in Princeton, MA. She is a dedicated Acroyogi and Ashtangi and continues to actively attend yoga forums and workshops. She teaches a variety of classes throughout Massachusetts, from Hot Power Flow to Gentle Restorative Yoga to Inversions Workshops to traditional Hatha Yoga- and she teaches children's classes, too! Jessica's classes are invigorating, focusing on alignment, flexibility and strength through creative sequencing and a spirit of playfulness and mindfulness. Additionally, she encourages growth of the spiritual self through the philosophy of yoga, including mantras, meditation, and work with the Chakra system. When she's not on the mat, Jess enjoys exploring the great outdoors and cheering on the Boston sports teams.
