Jessica has been a student of yoga for over 15 years. As a college sophomore, she took a semester-long course on yoga asana and philosophy. The sense of calm and centeredness she felt after each class was intoxicating, and she strives to provide this same experience to students in her classes.
Her passion lies in creating opportunities for students to experience empowerment, particularly in prenatal classes. Using a mix of asana, pranayama, anatomy lessons, and birth education, her goal is to create a sense of community in which pregnant people are able to connect with their bodies and their babies, and enter into their birth experiences armed with knowledge and confidence.
Jessica's teaching aims to be inclusive of all bodies, abilities, and identities. She is committed to allyship and to the lifelong learning that surrounds it.
Jessica completed her 200-hour yoga training with Tranquil Space in Washington, DC in 2019, and her 85-hour prenatal yoga training with Prenatal Yoga Center in New York, NY in 2020. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) and a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RYPT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with a Registered Yoga School (RYS).
