Yoga has been an integral part of Jessica’s holistic health lifestyle since finishing her 8 year journey with the Army National Guard in 2010. She has found personal relief from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) symptoms based upon the mind, body and spirit approach that yoga offers. With a particular focus on living in the present moment, meditation, pranayama (breath work), asana (postures of yoga), time spent in nature and healthy diet, there was incredible transformation from fight-or-flight mode into a balanced state of being.
Jessica recently graduated from ShivaShakti School of Yoga in Union, ME. Yogic studies included a strong foundation in asana, concentrating on alignment, vinyasa (flow,) strength & breath as well as classical yogic philosophy, and a thorough education in Anatomy and Physiology. Jessica has also been practicing as a licensed massage therapist in Maine for the past 10 years, after completing a comprehensive 700-hour massage therapy program with New Hampshire Institute for Therapeutic Arts in 2006. Jessica uses her personal experience and knowledge of the body to empower others to take charge of healing their own bodies & minds through the practice of yoga.
