Jessica’s yoga journey began in 2005 initially as a substitute for her childhood love of gymnastics and acrobatics, but she quickly fell in love with the practice and realized an eagerness to share this newfound passion while continuing along a path of self-discovery by completing her 200RYT and advanced teacher training with Briohny Smyth and Dice Iida-Klein.
In 2008, Jessica discovered the perfect combination of yoga and acrobatics in acroyoga and has since actively immersed herself in the practice, building the local acro community through her Facebook group, Acroyoga Hong Kong, and teaching workshops throughout the city after taking part in the first ACROVINYASA teacher training with Honza and Claudine Lafond of YogaBeyond. She is also currently taking steps towards becoming a certified SUP (stand up paddle board) yoga instructor.
A believer in the mantra “live what you love”, she made the choice to follow her bliss by leaving her corporate life to teach yoga full-time in 2015. She has been based primarily in Hong Kong since but has also had the privilege of teaching at yoga studios, conferences, festivals, and community spaces in Thailand, Korea, Australia, and the UK.
Naturally hypermobile and precisely five feet tall, Jessica has made it her mission to overcome her physical weaknesses and find balance through a strong, powerful yoga practice while inspiring others to discover their potential by becoming the best version of themselves. Jessica’s teaching philosophy is heavily influenced by alignment-based vinyasa and combines physical, dynamic sequencing with a playful approach. Her classes are all about connecting the breath with the flow, tempering the pose to suit the day, and working hard to the perfect playlist.
