Twelve years ago, Jessica’s Yoga practice began as a way to manage stress and anxiety, and to find more tools to better serve her instrumental music students at École secondaire catholique Lajeunesse.
After experiencing her first Jivamukti Yoga Open class, she very quickly realized that she wanted to learn as much as she could about the practice. This led her to complete her RYT 200 Hour certification with Mary Farrell at Blossoming Lotus Yoga in LaSalle, Ontario in 2013-2014. As a student, she has had the fortune of sitting with many teachers in the Jivamukti Yoga Method including Julie Kirkpatrick, as well as with Jivamukti Yoga founders Sharon Gannon and David Life at Wild Woodstock.
Jessica most often teaches alongside her husband Jason (also RTY 200 from BLY). Her classes each have a clear theme or focus based in yogic teachings. She combines sound, chanting and music at the core of her classes to uplift the practice, creating a space filled with love and compassion for all beings in order to extend that into the world.
Endless gratitude to her teachers Jennifer Simone for her first class in Kingsville, and to Maryji for guiding her toward the Jivamukti Yoga Lineage and practice, for her teachings, friendship, love and mentorship.
