Nominated as one of Canada's top fitness instructors, Yoga teacher, innovator, advocate for loving kindness, functional health enthusiast, Lightyear Leadership + Gems of Excellence facilitator. I am your biggest cheerleader and am so passionate about Igniting + Uniting you to yourself, your passion + other human beings.
I founded Embodied Adventure and choose everyday to be a Catalyst for Connection because creating experiences for people to live their most purposeful and authentic lives is my jam. What we need more of on this planet are healers, lovers of all kinds, mediators, peacemakers, storytellers and restorers. My mission is to support you in connecting deeper to yourself and to learn how to transform + lead with YOUR heart.
When you are deeply connected, embodied and listening to yourself + Nature, you are able to attune to others and accelerate success in any facet of your life.
I may be wee and compact but I contain big life-force. A juicy conversation and well heated latte bring light to my world even on the darkest day. My nickname is "Gypsy Jess" and I play a mean hand of Angel Cards (mean, like, dead on). I have been known to survive off tuna + eggs, while living in a van with only one big blue suitcase of belongings. The big spark inside of me that ignites others and their unique gifts to the world is a secret weapon even when they did not even think it was possible in their crusty hearts. I am a world teacher, wanderlusting lover of hugs + snuggles, leadership consultant, wickedly witty + your newest soul sister.
I embody both the Spiritual and Science based practices of Yoga and aim to integrate asana, meditation, mind-body medicine, visualization, philosophy, functional movement and somatic awareness as modalities for deeper connection and positive energy flow. I teach a movement practice that is fluid and dynamic, encompassing healing both the anatomy / physiology of the body as well as one's relationship to Self.
You can expect to flow and move sensually through your practice and feel encouraged to truly express, explore and enjoy your own unique experience. My classes ebb and flow to create a safe space that is inclusive and accommodating to all levels. I encourage kindness, play and lots of love and my ultimate desire is to support you in learning how to lead and transform from your heart.
