Growing up in athletics and always loving a good high intensity group fitness style class, Jessica had a very common misperception that yoga was all stretching and not really a “workout”. How wrong she was. She took her first class in 2012 and has been hooked ever since. -“I literally took a class everyday for the first week- I loved it so much!”
Power yoga is one of Jessica’s favorite styles of yoga to both practice and teach, but she has since branched into others like Vinyasa, and Hatha, she holds a special place in her heart for all. She loves the mental and physical challenge and reward the practice gives to her personal goals.
She hopes to bring you exciting and challenging class formats, inspire and bring the community of Saratoga Springs, Utah together with a shared interest in total body health and wellness. “Being healthy is more then just having a physically fit body- yoga helps you to be mentally and emotionally balanced as well.”
Jessica completed her first yoga teaching certification in Yoga Sculpt, which inspired her to then complete the 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teaching Certificate in Vinyasa Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage through LagoCPH at Anamaya Mind and Body Resort in Costa Rica. In the spring of 2017 she completed her additional 300 Hour Yoga Alliance certified program in Tahnā Yoga at The Yoga Underground in Provo, Utah.
