Why Choose me?

Passion for Yoga; Heart for People

My effort to build a lasting relationship with my students is what sets me apart from other teachers. Yes, I have completed over 500 hours of training to make it to this point, but I do not want to be just your instructor. I want to be your friend, your light in the darkness, and offer a place of freedom in each of my classes. Let’s grow and learn together.

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!
