Jenessa is a Pacific Northwest native, foodie, wellness fanatic, and big time dreamer. After discovering that yoga, meditation and proper diet helped to manage her anxiety, she aims to help others discover these essential life tools. Her approach is to do no harm and enjoy the growth that naturally follows.
Teaching a range of levels of yoga is just the surface of Jenessa's interest in the art of thriving. Her classes explore the anatomy of the physical body organically through Hatha yoga concepts. Without force and with precision she guides alignment of the body, control of the breath, and calming of the mind.
Jenessa earned her 200 hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) certification from The Lotus Seed in 2013. Since then she has completed a 100 hour immersion learning advanced techniques from Irene Pappas and Daniel Rama, taken anatomy courses, and attended workshops on adaptations for older adults, pranayama, and Ayurveda.
