Jessie has been studying yoga for over 23 years and teaching yoga for over 14 years. Prior to joining Izlind, Jessie was co-founder and co-director of Satya Yoga Center in Rhinebeck from 2005-2013. Her original studies brought her to Neyyar Dam, India, where she received her first teacher certification in the Sivananda tradition. She subsequently received her 2nd teacher certification from Bliss Yoga Center in Woodstock, NY, and continues her studies in The Yoga Anatomy Advanced Studies Program through the Breathing Project in New York City with teachers Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Mathews. Jessie teaches in the Vinyasa tradition from the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya, and she emphasizes an exploration of the breath within the postures and how the breath both informs alignment and creates a continuous, integrative thread between the postures. Jessie believes that yoga is an exploration of our entire being: body, breath, mind, and spirit; and she comes to these practices with joy, first and foremost. Jessie’s intention is to gently navigate our bodies into beautiful postures which reflect the natural world so that we can better explore our deepest potential and connection to each other and to our planet with grace and lightness of heart.
