I have been a student of Yoga for 30 years.  I fell in love with the physical practice on the spot but it took some time to realize that I was also somehow becoming a nicer, calmer and more loving human being.  At last it was time to share with others the practice that has been  so transformative for me.  I am now a graduate of Key Largo Yoga's teacher training program. I am a retired high school French teacher and a current world traveler.  My husband and I moved to the Keys in 2018 to enjoy the ocean and the beautiful weather.  How fortunate that there just happened to be a top notch Yoga studio right down the street! There are very few styles of Yoga that I haven't tried:  my absolute favorite is Iyengar Yoga but Vinyasa runs a close second. I like to think that I bring a sense of lightness and fun to my classes, combined with close attention to detail and alignment.   Students will learn how to do poses the right way for their bodies and their practice in a safe and compassionate environment.

Jessica grew up in Syracuse, NY and moved to Key Largo in 2007.  She graduated from Syracuse University with a bachelors in Inclusive Education and a masters in Special Education and taught 2/3rd graders in NY for six years before moving to the Keys to take a teaching position at Key Largo School where she primarily works with students who have severe disabilities.  Looking for a stress release and another form of exercise besides training in the gym, Jess started practicing yoga back in 2013.  After seeing all of the benefits yoga had to offer both on and off the mat she started working on her children's yoga certification so she could bring yoga to first, her own students and then eventually all of Key Largo School.  The next step was to obtain her 200 HR RYT which she did right here at Key Largo Yoga in April 2017.
