Jessie Hill

Describe yourself in three words: fiery, happy, passionate

Why do you teach Yoga? It only seems right. How could I keep this amazing gift all to myself?

Something surprising about you: I was a Hammer Thrower at the University of Maryland

What inspires you? Progress. It's not always a straight line: sometimes we even take a few steps backwards first. That's ok because there is never an end to yoga- it's a journey. There's always a next step, always a deeper variation- whether that's physical or just a change in perspective.

Where did you get your training/certifications? Thrive Yoga 200YTT

 

Jessie found her way to her mat after years of athletics. While she was initially drawn to the challenging asana practice, what she found was so much more than a sport replacement! Jessie loves a sweaty asana practice but equally enjoys a sweet meditation practice. Jessie looks forward to sharing her zest with others, while encouraging them to listen to their bodies and stay present.

Jessica Apo

Describe yourself in three words: Outgoing, honest, caring.

Why do you teach Yoga? Teaching yoga allows me to move at a higher vibration. I enjoy seeing the transformation that takes place for my students not only on their mats, but in their everyday lives.

What is something surprising about you? I enjoy saying things for shock value!

What inspires you? Music, movement, and nature.

What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? It might seem silly, but to embrace the aging process.
