RYT200 Elemental Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher
Yoga inspired a new chapter of self-love and acceptance in her life, and has allowed her to leave behind self-destructive thoughts and habits.
With a desire for spiritual and physical self-discovery after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, she embarked on a two month journey to India in 2012, embracing new ideas, techniques, and movements from her teachers there.
In her hometown of Calgary, she began instructor training with the Mandorla family in January 2016, and is so grateful to have found such a loving, heart-centered and accepting place to continue her journey as a student and elemental vinyasa flow teacher.
In her own practice, Jess focuses on respecting the body through gentle breath, allowing it to guide her movements.
In her classes, expect some gentle hands-on assists, modifications, definitely some giggling, and general skylarking.
In her spare time, Jess enjoys bird watching, utilizing her green thumb, and aqueducts.
