Jessica is a yoga teacher and YogaWorks teacher trainer
ask an instructor – 10 questions.
the very first yoga class you attended? I can’t remember when but recall being bored!
what is it about yoga that inspires you? How strong it makes me physically & mentally.
what yoga item(s) could you not be without? Cotton yoga pants (hard tail). Universalyogi mats are my fave.
your favorite post yoga class snack? Whole bowl – cabbage, spinach, brown rice, beans, avocado, hot sauce!
which book would you recommend to a brand new student of yoga? ‘The Heart of Yoga’ by TKV Desikachar is good for beginners.
if you could teach a class anywhere in the world, where would it be? Harbour Island, Bahamas Pink Sands Beach – I lead retreats there!
type of class you like to attend when you are not the instructor? Flow with creative & intelligent sequencing, not exhausting but empowering.
favorite thing to do if not doing yoga? Beach and travel.
if you weren’t a yoga instructor? A travel correspondent/journalist would be my first choice.
as a yoga instructor, what do you hope a new student takes away from your class? Better knowledge of yoga & burning desire to learn more.
Jessica is leading a Teacher Training at YogaWorks Mission Viejo in Feb. 2017 and a retreat in the Bahamas late February 2017.
