About me

Jessa is a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, who—through a deep-rooted interest in self-discovery and awareness—found herself traveling to the birthplace of yoga in the Himalayan Mountains of South East Asia, where she lived and learned Ashtanga and Hatha styles of yoga at the Vinyasa Yoga Academy in Rishikesh, India.

Empathetic by nature, Jessa seeks to connect with her students, learning from one another, and strengthening the feeling of oneness that exists between all. She enjoys integrating an array of mind, body, and breath connecting techniques in order to craft a flow that resonates within any level of student. 

Jessa invites you to join her in her art, and looks forward to working with one another in the wonderful space at Mountain Base Yoga. 

What to expect in my class

Beginner's Vinyasa:

This class brings forth a slow paced and expressive sequence that introduces foundational yoga postures, breathing techniques, creative movement as well as a sense of comfort on the mat while in a community setting. Consistent cueing and explanation of the guided movements class allow new students to familiarize with the vernacular and transitions commonly used in the practice of yoga. This class also provides an opportunity for non-beginners to freshen up on their body alignment, attune to their inner flow, and strengthen their awareness of the breath.

Intermediate/All level Goddess Flow Yoga:

Gather to join in on the dance of the Goddess in this intermediate/all level Vinyasa yoga class that inspires connection with the creative and expressive energies pulsating through us all. The guided meditations and flows of this class will include foundational postures from the Hatha Yoga lineage, sequenced to assist the practitioner in connecting with the physical body, finding strength and stability in movement, while also awakening the divine qualities within. Fluidity in the transitions between postures will be key in each class, as well as practices of pranayama, the utilization of the breath. Come to surrender, tuning into the subtleties of self, and learn to maintain awareness in motion.

Private Lessons:

In addition to her Beginner’s Vinyasa class, Jessa teaches private, one-on-one yoga classes that are tailored to meet the specific needs of her students, while assisting them in strengthening and deepening their yoga practice.
