Jessie has been a practitioner of yoga since 1999. She started out armed only with a copy of Yoga Journal and a bath towel for a yoga mat.
Jessie completed a 200-hour teacher training in New York City in 2008, with Jeff Migdow, MD and Priti Robyn Ross, E-RYT, both of whom are Kripalu-based yoga teachers.
She teaches a mindful, alignment-based flow, weaving elements of Iyengar, Vinyasa and mindfulness-based practices into her teaching. A trained and experienced birth doula for over 10 years, Jessie is also certified to teach pre and post-natal yoga. In 2009 she completed a children’s yoga teacher training through Little Flower Yoga, based in New York City.
Jessie encourages students to connect to their own personal experience of the practice through a keen presence and awareness, exploration of the breath, and compassionate acceptance of where they are in the moment.
