The purpose of her classes is to help guide her students to live a life of purpose and passion, finding peace of mind and strength of body.

It [SUP Yoga] adds a fresh new dynamic. When I first started, it was like approaching yoga as a beginner/child again. You have to engage everything, or you fall in, which is a fresh reminder for someone who has been practicing yoga for years. It was just another beautiful learning experience for me in my journey, and now I love experiencing my love for the ocean and yoga at the same time.

Jessica has trained hundreds of Yoga Instructors worldwide and taught thousands of SUP Yoga students in various locations. Her Teacher Training and Classes have an incredibly personal feel as she puts her entire heart and soul into crafting an experience that will leave you feeling empowered.
