‘For me – Yoga can restore confidence, ligntess and a sense of freedom.’
Touched by Ashtanga Yoga more than 10 years ago, Jessica was always supported by this practice during changes and trials of her life. By realizing the stability brought by Yoga, Jessica decided to go further her learning.
Thirsty for knowledge, she’s constantly inspired and has trained with traditional masters and teachers including Paul Dallaghan who certifed her. Jessi has continued her learning with world renowned David Swenson, Maty Ezraty and Richard Freeman which enables her to create transformational Ashtanga, Iyenger and Vinyassa sequences that cultivate curiosity, sensitivity and humour to raise the level of awareness. She focuses on the understanding of practice rather than the number of postures and uses Yoga as a tool to feel the subtleties of the physical and energetical bodies.
Yoga has changed my life. For years I have suffered with Adrenal Fatigue and positive RO antibody which is an autoimmune disease. That combined with being a workaholic in the corporate world often meant doing 13-hour days. I used all my energy up at work that I often had nothing left for me. I was regularly bed bound on evenings and weekends and dependent on coffee to get me from A to B, but the direct result of this was insomnia and I was in a vicious circle. I had dipped in and out of yoga for 15 years however as my physical and mental health was deteriorating I became more and more interested in how to heal myself so I started to develop a regular yoga practice and invite holistic healing into my life. Within weeks my life started to dramatically change. I knew very quickly that I wanted to learn more and I wanted to help other people so I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher certification. But it hasn’t stopped there… I have continued to learn and specialize in other aspects of Yoga and Healing and I believe I will always be a student craving to learn more so that I can share with you lovely people.
REIKI & SOUND
Working in the fire and rescue service was my dream job and after making the difficult decision to leave after 12 years service I lost my way a little. I missed helping other people and felt something was missing. I proceeded to spend another 12 years building up my own renovations and maintenance company and whilst really enjoying meeting new people and the practical side of working with my hands and being creative I still felt I had more to offer. I started going to yoga classes to help with a back injury and saw that a Reiki Level 1 course was happening so I signed up. It was very powerful and I had a real connection with the energy. I found it very calming and I very quickly received feedback on how I had helped others with personal issues or physical ailments. I then studied and completed Reiki 2, further progressing to Reiki Drumming and am now a singing bowl therapy practitioner and perform gong baths. Working with energy and sound is fascinating and I love seeing the impact it can have on peoples lives.
