How I came to yoga
Hello and welcome! I'm Jessica and I'm so glad you're here.
A few years ago, I found myself living in a new state for the third time in five years with two young children and a husband who had quit his corporate job to start his own business. I had recently quit my own job to become a stay at home mom. All the change and uncertainty left me feeling anxious and often times resentful.
Then one day, on a whim, I went to a yoga class. I had attended group classes before and liked the way they made me feel. This time was no different! The physical practice and breath work were amazing and I felt healthier and less anxious with every class. After a few months of classes, I enrolled in a 200 hour teacher training. It was a great experience that taught me (among many other things) that the postures and breathing were only the tip of the iceberg.
I had noticed so many positive changes and I wanted to dig in a bit deeper. I started working with an amazing teacher and mentor one on one. I discovered that I was passionate about yoga philosophy and therapeutic yoga and wanted to keep learning. I began teaching small groups and private clients and enrolled in an advanced 500 hour training. This fall I'll start in a Yoga Therapy program.
I work with a variety of clients of all ages and various health concerns. I have a particular interest in the relationship of motherhood and alleviating the stresses that come along with it.
