Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
When I step onto my Manduka, I am stepping onto my sacred space. The place where my body and mind are free to become one. With each breathe, asana, and drop of sweat I learn to let my heart soar & my spirit blossom...all while on my Manduka.

Why Manduka?: The Manduka mat not only supports and cushions the joints during practice, but it supports the global push towards being kind to our environments with their eco-friendly mats. We can ALL use more support and kindness.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice Self Care.
Yoga Style: Vinyasa Flow , Yoga TuneUp®
After growing out of the severe asthma that left her not being able to participate in any sports or physical activity Jessica took on any and every type of workout. The physical stress combined with anxiety as result of the asthma led to her very first yoga class. Yoga became a way to bring balance to her physical and mental well being.
She now uses expertise to put together fun yet challenging classes. Her intimate knowledge of both anatomy and asana allows her to meet her students wherever they are in their practice.
Jessica is also a certified Yoga Tune Up® teacher.
