JESSICA'S TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Jessica has been a student of yoga for over 15 years. As a college sophomore, she took a semester-long course on yoga asana and philosophy. The sense of calm and centeredness she felt after each class was intoxicating, and she strives to provide this same experience to students in her classes.
Her passion lies in creating opportunities for students to experience empowerment, particularly in prenatal classes. Using a mix of asana, pranayama, anatomy lessons, and birth education, her goal is to create a sense of community in which pregnant people are able to connect with their bodies and their babies, and enter into their birth experiences armed with knowledge and confidence.
Jessica intends that her teaching is inclusive of all bodies, abilities, and identities. She is committed to allyship and to the lifelong learning that surrounds it.
