Jenn's Pilates class was recommended to me by my massage therapist, Julia Keller to help improve my core strength in order to ease back pain. I'll admit, it was a bit tough, but I haven't exercised in a while and Jenn said I did well (I was surprised!). I actually signed up for a private class with Jenn to really drill down on the areas I need improvement and to fine tune my posture and poses.
One of my greatest teachers during my 10 years living in NYC admired my serenity & slight obsession with inversions. However, for me, my admiration wasn't, and isn't, about the challenge of accomplishing these advanced poses; rather, the way my mind & body felt while “actually within”, and after coming out, of an extended headstand.
“Have you been to this new floating yoga from a swing?” he asked.
One visit...I was hooked!
Jessica Lubin returned to her hometown of Albany in 2011 after her life path took her almost around the globe. She moved to Guatemala to help build a bottle school, decided to stay and intensify her study of yoga and holistic health there. She then traveled to India for 5 months where she studied & received her yoga teacher training certification. She opened Good Karma Studio, the 1st and only Aerial Yoga Studio in Albany, NY in 2011.
In 2013, Good Karma expanded, offering two amazing studios within one building. Our 2nd floor, or “Flight Center”, continues to house all Aerial experiences. While our new first floor studio, “Ground Down” is a space to feel the earth beneath your mat. A perfect balance.
Jessica has since studied & trained under Tribe Yoga, Gravotonics, Rolf Gates, Janet Stone, Shiva Rea, Yoga Works NYC, Kula Yoga/Schuyler Grant, & Sadie Nardini.
She LOVES to teach, to learn, to be inspired & to inspire!
