About Me

Hey there, I’m Jess. I am a registered 500 hour yoga teacher and would love to support you on your journey.

Thank you so much for visiting my website. I am so happy you found your way here. My intention behind having this page is for you to be able to gain more insight on what exactly I do and how I can be a part of your life through yoga, reiki, and/or your grief journey. I fully believe life is about making connections and I hope that on our journey we will have the opportunity to connect. On this page you will be able to find more in depth information about who I am, what yoga & reiki is, and how we can get in touch.

Why Choose me?

passion for yoga ~ heart for people

One of the most important things I want my students to feel when attending my class is: radical acceptance.
I want to be a walking reminder that no matter what stage in life you are currently in physically, spiritually, or emotionally.. it is accepted and okay. Yoga is a practice for all bodies, souls, and minds. You do not have to be flexible or have a clear mind to come to class, you just have to show up. On your mat you are accepted as you are and with me you have permission to be yourself fully. The energy we cultivate in class is the energy I want us to radiate in life. Accept yourself in all aspects and accept those around you for who they are, as we are all trying our best with the knowledge we have.

What People Are Saying

“During my initial meeting with Jess, she made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I had never had Reiki before, however I felt deeply peaceful and supported in the space that Jess had created for our session. During the healing I experienced a profound shift and clearing which I was able to discuss with Jess afterwards and gain clarity and understanding as to what had taken place on an energetic level. I am very grateful for the overall experience and I highly recommend Jess to others who are seeking a Reiki practitioner who is knowledgeable, as well as extremely intuitive, passionate and kind.”

Angela Moreta


“I had the opportunity to take Jess’s yoga class as well as experience my first ever reiki healing from her- both truly incredible experiences. As a yoga instructor myself, I was impressed by the attention to detail in Jess’s yoga class. Her cues are detailed and it is evident that she is well educated in proper alignment. I always really appreciate it when teachers place extra effort in theming a class, which she did very well. As for her reiki, I truly believe that Jess has a special ability to connect energies. She has an openness about her that creates a comfortable and healing environment. Overall I would highly recommend Jess’s services.”

Christina Lammey


Jess is such a well-rounded and extremely talented teacher! I would highly recommend her classes and her healing services! She is wholeheartedly passionate about what she does and cares deeply about everyone she comes in contact with. She is one of those rare people who radiates genuine love and positivity – you can’t help but feel uplifted in her presence. If you get a chance to take her class or reiki, don’t hesitate. Just do it!
