Bio:

Jessica, a native New Yorker, has recently returned home after living in California for the past twelve years.  She began practicing yoga in 2002 in Southern California and immediately experienced the benefits of a daily practice.  Jessica had been suffering from chronic back pain due to scoliosis and the one thing that has continued to keep the discomfort at bay is her yoga practice.  She is thrilled to be able to share this healing process with others suffering from the various ailments that affect our physical bodies. 

Jessica also applies her yoga knowledge on infants, toddlers, and children, with and without special needs.  Through her work with both typically and atypically functioning children, she has seen how guiding their little bodies into yoga poses can alleviate colic, emotional stress, and help them gain the body awareness they need to successfully make the milestones they need to in order to grow.
