consistency + accountability = transformation
We're all aware of the benefits that having a yoga practice can bring. Things like improved mental wellbeing, flexibility, strength, and stress relief are top of mind.
Many of my students tell me that they want to be more consistent with their practice so they can
be more flexible and not feel so tight
improve strength and do the challenging poses
get better at being in the moment and destressing
But then... life gets in the way of our even our most well intentioned plans.
The dog needs walked.
Just a little bit more time on this project.
Dinner needs to be made.
The list of things demanding our time is endless. And not all of them is good for us. (Anyone else get stuck in that endless scroll through Instagram and suddenly wonder where all that time's gone?)
Yoga for Active People Semester 🎉
The yoga series for busy people with active lifestyles that brings in the accountability and support to go from a sore, achy body and restless mind to moving with ease in mind and body.
I’ve taken what I’ve learned from 4 years of teaching, various workshops throughout my 14 years of practice, and training that focuses on making this practice more accessible with teachers like Judy Gudmenstad and Lynn Crimando.
All this is infused into my classes so you don’t have to go through the Google rabbit hole and all the modality switching to find what works for you.
The Yoga for Active People Semester is more than a bunch of yoga classes. It’s a little oasis from your busy day that gives you the time and space to reset your mind, nourish the way you move, and relax.
You'll receive the benefits of yoga in a way that cultivates consistency so you can
Feel balanced and strong in your mind and body
Have the energy and patience to show up for the people you love (including yourself)
Love the way you move through the world
The all levels yoga classes in this program focus on building strength and flexibility in a balanced way.
We’ll move at a moderate to slow pace. There are periods of moving with the breath to help you feel energized. There are also periods of stillness to notice how your body feels, see where your mind moves, and tune into something deeper than a good stretch.
These classes are intentionally designed to help you enjoy the way you move through the world for years to come.
I enjoyed having a weekly session with guidance for a set period of time.
I started practicing with Jessica in private sessions and have been consistent about continuing on my own in between. Participating in a group setting gave me a different perspective and was valuable both in experience and the financial investment. The options for using props and poses with more movement offered variety and a playful element which I enjoyed.
I continue to grow in a fulfilling way with Jessica's teaching style which fosters the development of the individual to trust their practice.

Imagine what the world would be like if…
You didn’t wake up sore every day
You could move with confidence, joy, and ease
You felt recharged so you can show up fully for the people and things you care about most
You got time just for yourself instead of having to worry about all your other responsibilities
That’s what we aim to achieve with the Yoga for Active People Semester.
Every class I felt distracted and aches and pains when we began. By the end I felt calm, collected and relaxed.
Beth Little, Manager for early intervention services
Even though Jessica is physically located in Fort Collins and I am physically in Detroit, she provided inspiration and knowledge to get me back on the mat after a head injury. Through videos posted and modifications to the standard poses, Jessica gave me the tools to practice without fear. Jessica is truly passionate about what she does....and will share it with you!
