Owner and Managing Director of Studio Blue
Jessica was a competitive swimmer for over 14 years. After graduating from university and retiring from the varsity swim team Jessica turned to yoga as a way to stay fit and active. Her initial interest in yoga was purely physical and she did not anticipate the deep connection between mind, body and breath she would find in her practice. In 2008, Jessica successfully completed her 500 hour Moksha Yoga Teacher Training in Kerala, India and has been guiding people through their own practice ever since. Jessica brings a positive, enthusiastic and encouraging energy to her classes as she tries to ensure that everyone is being challenged in the way they need to be challenged that day.
Leveraging both her background as a London-based marketing manager and the passion she discovered while training in India to be a yoga instructor, Jessica decided to follow her entrepreneurial instincts. Armed with an MBA and 6 years of yoga instruction under her belt, Jessica left the UK and returned home to create a playful space for Toronto’s yoga community—Living proof of the benefits of a balanced life!
Jessica encourages her team of Studio Blue instructors to be free-spirited and to inspire a playful sense of community with every class. All participants are motivated to channel their inner child, let go of a busy day, and, for a short moment in time, be present in each and every breath.
