Jessie Headshot

Jessie has a deep love and respect for yoga.  She believes it works beyond mere movement and has the ability to bring us to a space where we can observe, accept, love, and nurture ourselves.  She has been a practitioner of yoga for over ten years and a teacher for more than five.  She received her 200-hour teacher certification from Shoshoni Ashram outside of Boulder, CO after completing a one month immersion course.  She has also completed further training with Shoshoni in adjustments, yoga therapy, and meditation instruction.  Jessie currently works as a massage therapist at Unity Healing Arts and likes to draw from her knowledge of bodywork to give gentle adjustments to willing students.  She hopes every student leaves her class with a firmer grounding in themselves and a confidence to continue to meet life’s challenges and grow.

Jessie’s Class

Vinyasa Flow, Tuesdays from 8 to 9 am (L1 & 2)

Nothing better than starting your day with this mindful and centering vinyasa flow! We’ll develop strength and stability with slow intentional movements and we’ll find opening and length while holding stretches for multiple breath cycles with conscious alignment.  Gentle adjustments will be offered to those willing to receive and space will always be given to those who do not. We will occasionally approach arm balances, binds, extended balancing sequences, and inversions with awareness (and modifications) but also with an uncritical playfulness – allowing ourselves to encounter challenge without despair.  Work out early morning stiffness and leave ready to embrace the day!
