Meet Jess

Jess is a yoga instructor with years of teaching experience and a strong love for yoga. Jess has over 20 years of dance experience and almost 10 years practicing yoga.


Jess found yoga after graduating high school. She started teaching dance, but realized she wasn't dancing as much as she used to. "I needed something that would keep me in shape, keep me limber and strong. I didn't realize the impact yoga would have on my life."

Jess realized she needed to share her love of yoga and her experience with others. So she became certified and started teaching locally.

Jess loves to teach. Her students are her pride and joy. "I can't describe the feeling I get when I see my students finally making a breakthrough on a pose they've been working really hard on...or when they just feel that class helped them to cope with their day; that's the best feeling in the world."

Thanks Jess, Toga was awesome! When I left, I felt stronger, longer, leaner, and all of my kinks were stretched out.
