Jessica fell in love with yoga on Valentine's Day in 2016 when she attended her first Shakti Power Flow. The physical challenge, emotional benefits and friendly faces kept her coming back for more. She completed her 200-hour training with Empower School of Yoga in March 2018. As a teacher, it is her intention to encourage students to find joy and ease in yoga, and explore the modifications & variations that make the practice their own. She is a graduate of Belmont University and has been in Nashville hiking at Radnor Lake, seeing live music and dining on patios for the past 13 years. The unconditional love and support she found in the Shakti community is something she does not take for granted and hopes to pay it forward every time she walks through the door.
