Jessica Robertson

JESSICA ROBERTSON is the co-founder of Modo Yoga (also known as Moksha Yoga in Canada), co-founder of New Leaf Yoga Foundation and co-founder of Modo Yoga LA. She also co-directs Moksha/Modo Yoga International. She is a teacher, activist, musician student, and consultant on enlivening yoga philosophy in business and community.
Jess grew up on a farm with her hippie yoga parents in a community guided by her primary teacher Baba Hari Das. She studied yoga from 18-23 before teaching. She is trained to teach Bikram, Sivananda, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Power Yoga and Kirtan. Her greatest learning comes from being in nature and from practicing every day, even when she doesn’t feel like it!
Jess’s academic background includes studies in History and Anthropology of Medicine and Anatomy at McGill University, graduate work in Buddhism with Peter Harvey in the UK and personal studies in inquiry based learning, effective time management, sanskrit, guitar and bass flute.
Before teaching yoga Jess worked in the not-for-profit sector with Amnesty International, EarthSave, and the Canadian Association for Community Living in Panama.
Jess plays with kirtan group Lila and the indie-rock band Little Scream. She counts being on the faculty of the Moksha Yoga training one of her greatest blessings!
