Jess has been rediscovering herself on the mat since 2011. As an elementary teacher and yogi, she was asked to teach kid's yoga at her home studio in 2012, which later evolved into a 200 hour teacher training with Travis Eliot and Daniel Head. She has since become completely enamored with the healing practices of Yin yoga and has studied with Bernie Clark and Sarah Powers for over 300 hours of Yin-focused training. Jess has been teaching Yin yoga since the opening of Vasa in 2014. She is currently a student of Sarah Powers' Insight Yoga Institute, which is an artistic integration of Buddhism, psychological inquiry, and yoga.
Jess' classes offer mindfulness meditation practices, breathwork, and skillful sequences that aim to help her students arrive in their bodies with compassionate awareness, acceptance, and curiosity.
