Jess has been teaching yoga since 2011. After a career teaching ESL and preschool, in 2017 she took the plunge into teaching yoga full-time while attending Maryland University’s Master of Yoga Therapy program. She is a Pelvic Floor Yoga Therapist and specializes in prenatal yoga and children’s yoga. Her passion is guiding people to communicate more intimately with their bodies. Each class is a combination of creative movement, anatomically based alignment, and purposeful movements meant to activate a deeper conversation with the physical body. When you’re in Jess’ class expect intentional transitions, deep breaths, loving assists, quotes, and a long savasana.
my life philosophy is many things, and always changing, but somehow always, landing among these two pillars…
discovery and exploration: viewing the world through the lens of inquiry and wonder. you know nothing, always be learning
sensuality: the body knows first, it’s asking you to feel. plug into the body to receive the messages it’s sending to you
my yoga classes incorporate these tenets through slow, intentional movements that allow for continuous curiosity and deep listening to the body
discovering the senses in yoga helps to discover the sensuality of every moment…
listening to poetry chant with each ocean wave as it laps at the shore;
drinking in coconut ambrosia as each sip rejuvenates my body;
breathing in the fresh green aromas of mother nature as we synchronize our breath;
bearing witness to the hauntingly bright moon as she fills the air with her afterglow;
feeling strength of the mountain in my feet as I ascend.
Each person’s journey, a cosmic journey, includes discovering the hidden bits of magic within each moment.
To appreciate and relish in the beauty of the world and life through each moment
– the good, the bad, the frustrating, the exciting, the scary, the illuminating –
that, that is the yoga.
dive into into it, what is the moment trying to tell you?
Each moment creates the mosaic of our lives
