What to Expect

At your first visit, you and Jessie will explore and discuss your lifestyle, habits, beliefs, and orientation to your body in order to best cater the yoga session to your individual personality and needs. 

 

She will then guide you through the Yoga Movement ScreenTM developed in the ShambhaVananda school of yoga and adapted from Gray Cook's FMS.  This is an assessment of your functional movements via yoga asanas (postures) in order to determine what limitations your body presents with and how to best address them. 

Next, Jessie will help you learn asana, pranayama, and meditation practices that address your body's limitations and develop a home practice specifically for you. She will make lifestyle recommendations and depending upon your needs, may incorporate some manual therapy techniques for optimal results. 

This system works best when you schedule at least three to six sessions, preferably one week apart, so that together you and Jessie can address aspects that are challenging and progress you so you can optimize your healing journey.

"I attended a special yoga class for folks with back issues.  It was so much fun, and it was my first experience with yoga of any kind.  It was not what I thought it was going to be … it was so much better.  No stressing, no straining, just getting reacquainted with my body in new ways.  I learned some new breathing techniques and about discovering spaces in my body I did not know were there.  Thank you, Jessie, for your gentle guidance and your creative insights."

"I absolutely love Jessie’s yoga classes!  Her understanding of how the body moves combined with her knowledge of the healing and spiritual practices of Yoga and Reiki makes each class a gentle and beautiful experience as you learn to connect your heart and soul with your body.  She pays attention to each student, offering ample assistance, hands-on adjustments and alternative postures for the limber challenged student or those recovering from injuries both old and new.  Her classes are restorative and nurturing with a focus on moving with your breath and learning to pay attention to your individual body’s needs.  Loving, Kind and Compassionate.  An Excellent Teacher!"

"Jessie is an incredible, Intuitive healer. She takes the time to listen to you and your body so that she can help you move past any pain you are experiencing. She is also one of the most knowledgeable yoga instructors I've ever practiced with.  The depth of her understanding of the physical and subtle bodies is so evident in her sequences and ques. Every class feels therapeutic and nourishing."

“Oh, I cannot sing Jessie’s praises enough.  2 years ago I finally decided to try yoga to strengthen my core.  I told myself that maybe within 10 classes my back discomfort would lessen, and I cried at the end of the first class – and drove home with no pain.  I know that not everyone responds that quickly, but I have yet to leave a practice with Jessie without feeling remarkably like I am whole again.”

"I was new to yoga, never once having experienced anything remotely close to this type of exercise.  I had been recently diagnosed with a severe form of lumbar stenosis in my back, and I was in horrible pain 24 hours a day and a rather fragile emotional state after having cared for my mother who had just passed away. 

When I first started Jessie's class, the pain relief lasted an entire week and my emotional state was lifted enormously.  My condition is slowly healing. I don't' know what I would have done if I didn't have sweet Jessie and her extremely careful and considerate care."
