Jessica was a competitive swimmer for over 14 years. After graduating from university and retiring from the varsity swim team Jessica turned to yoga as a way to stay fit and active. Her initial interest in yoga was purely physical and she did not anticipate the deep connection between mind, body and breath she would find in her practice. In 2008, Jessica successfully completed her 500 hour Moksha Yoga Teacher Training in Kerala, India and has been guiding people through their own practice ever since. Jessica brings a positive, enthusiastic and encouraging energy to her classes as she tries to ensure that everyone is being challenged in the way they need to be challenged that day.

In 2014, Jessica opened Studio Blue Yoga and Fitness in Toronto’s Dundas West area. Warmed to a perfect 26 degrees, Studio Blue offers a variety of unique Yoga classes for all levels from Parents and Toddler Yoga and Ballet Fusion Yoga to Hip-Hop Yoga and Yoga Boot Camp. Jessica encourages her team of Studio Blue instructors to be free-spirited and to inspire a playful sense of community with every class. All participants are motivated to channel their inner child, let go of a busy day, and, for a short moment in time, be present in each and every breath.
