JJess first stumbled onto a yoga mat back in 2001. A seemingly uncoordinated, inflexible athlete, with a bit of a competitive edge at the time, this was one challenge she unexpectedly could not resist. Admittedly like most, it was the physical asana that drew her in, particularly the challenge. But over time, her practice and teaching has evolved, and since her first pilgrimage to india in 2013, after the unexpected loss of her father, has become a spiritual path and way of living.
Jess has been a travelling yogini since 2004 with strong roots in the Hatha yog tradition including Ashtanga Vinyasa method, combined with a Fitness, Ayurveda, nutrition and Wellness coaching background. She shares her extensive experience & passion as a unique, inspiring light along the students individual journey inward encouraging their practice to extend beyond the mat. Jess lives by Patanjali’s eight limb path as closely as her own path has brought her to date, cultivating a lifestyle to inspire progress not perfection, intentional living and balance in all areas of life. Her ultimate goal is to bring the tradition of the East to the West to inspire and evolve our practices for spiritual growth, healing and cultivate a life of vitality and wellness. Jess also aims to assist in the immersion of Westerners into the East through retreats, in order to fund the education, development, and empowerment of young women in India to fulfill their dreams of visiting the West.
