Jessie Kastler has been practicing yoga since she began attending classes at River Rock Studio upon her arrival in Ocean Springs in fall 2007. She completed the 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2010. Originally from New Orleans, Jessie moved several times on the way to becoming an environmental scientist. She enjoys sharing what she knows about both coastal ecosystems and yoga in classroom and informal settings – although usually not at the same time. As a co-instructor for the Community Yoga class, Jessie’s goal is to help students develop a personal practice that meets their individual needs.
