Practice connecting to your body and learn how it can improve your happiness!
After taking time to get to know you and what you need, I will create individualized yoga plans that "start where you are." This is a term we use in yoga classes that can also be used in our everyday life. Are you looking to carve out 5 minutes for yourself every day? Is your body hurting in a certain area and you can't seem to get to the root of it? Do you feel tight, weighed down, foggy? Let's patiently and kindly inquire into ourselves "What do I need? What do I want?" and see how we can answer and respond!

“My daughter took ballet from Jessica over the years. Jessica is a very warm and supportive teacher. She fosters a nurturing environment where dancers challenge themselves, while learning the proper technique. Over the years, I have seen Jessica turn students who took ballet as requirement into dancers who were passionate about the art form. I have had the privilege of observing Jessica classes over the years. She is an excellent teacher and choreographer for all age groups. Her passion for her craft is infectious. As a parent, I can attest that she is very approachable and a joy to be around.”
