Jess is first and always a student of yoga. She started her practice in 2011 in the hot room, stumbling awkwardly out of balancing poses and sweating in areas she never knew possible. For many years she focused solely on the physical aspects. As her practice evolved over time it became more about embracing stillness and connecting with moment to moment experience.
Jess took her first teacher training with Modo Yoga in Fall 2019 without being decidely clear that teaching would be in her future. Jess believes that inviting change and uncertainty however big or small can create opportunities. She likes to encourage her students to receive their practice with openness, allowing the experience to unfold both on and off the mat. Jess is certified in Modo, Modo Flow and Yin.
Outside of yoga Jess loves food, dancing, and solo travel.
