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.

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.
