Jessica
Jessica began dancing at the Canton Ballet when she was 4 years old and studied there until she was 18. She completed a dual degree at Ohio State University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Modern Dance and a Bachelors of Art in Psychology. After graduation, she danced professionally primarily for the Backspace Performance Ensemble. Her dance career led to her curiosity for Yoga, because many choreographers were using the practice to warm up the mind and body for rehearsals and performances. In 2009, she moved to New York City to continue dancing for Backspace, and her yoga practice became a priority, for not just physical benefits, but for emotional and spiritual health as well. In 2014, she completed her 200 hr RYT at Yoga Vida NYC, a program grounded in Vinyasa with influences of Ashtanga. After 5 years living the NYC life, she and her husband Jeremy decided to move to Los Angeles. The transition was the perfect time to visit India for a month, where Jessica completed an intensive at Parmarth Niketan Ashram. She was able to sharpen her skills and knowledge of yoga philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. The Ashram was the perfect preparation for teaching, dancing, and acting for Fugitive Kind Live Theater in LA. The calling to start a family brought Jessica and Jeremy back to Canton in 2017 and also inspired her to specialize in prenatal & postnatal yoga. She completed her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training certificate through Blooma Yoga at Kripalu Center For Yoga & Health that same year.

Jessica's classes are a movement meditation with an emphasis on alignment and breath. When leading a class, she hopes to meet each student where their body, mind, and soul are at! You can find Jessica teaching Vinyasa classes, Prenatal and Postnatal workshops, as well as private dance classes.
