Jessica is a mama to one-year old identical twin boys and the founder of Zenergy Yoga, her “first baby”. She is a strong believer that yoga, when practiced with intelligence and dedication, has innumerable benefits and can help to manage and alleviate many common ailments. Having witnessed the profound effects of yoga firsthand, she has dedicated her life to learning and experiencing as much as possible so that she can share her knowledge with others and support them on their journey to wellness.
Jessica is an E-RYT, (experienced registered yoga teacher), and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), and feels fortunate to have over 1000 hours experience working with individuals, groups and corporations to share her passion for yoga and wellness. She approaches teaching from the perspective that she is merely a facilitator, empowering people with the tools and knowledge to better connect with their body, mind and inner wisdom. She has a special interest in one on one therapeutic applications of yoga for both chronic disease as well as everyday ailments.
For Jessica, Zenergy Yoga is a dream come true. The vision for Zenergy Yoga was born in the Andes of Peru as she hiked the Inca Trail on a pilgrimage abroad. She dreamed of creating a studio that is accessible to everyone, regardless of their age, ability, experience level, or socio-economic status. She envisioned a space where people gather not only for classes, but also to belong to a community of like-minded individuals who support one another as they progress through their yoga journey. Her ultimate goal is to ensure that each and every person who enters the doors of Zenergy Yoga walks out feeling happier and healthier than they did when they first arrived. She is ecstatic to share the Zen Flow Teacher Training with the community and cannot wait to witness the growth and transformation that will arise throughout the journey.
