“Jess is an extremely effective teacher for many reasons, but most notably because she is a living example of what she preaches. Her teaching is also greatly enhanced by her background in massage therapy, her experience training for and participating in Ironman triathlons, her knowledge of plant-based nutrition, and her commitment to a meditation practice. She is skillful at sharing what she knows in a way that is always relevant to what’s happening in the class.” – Renee, owner Rhode Island Power Yoga
Athletes like to think they don’t need yoga. If they’re not sweating or increasing their heart rate, they don’t consider it a workout and would rather not waste their time. But yoga has many benefits for athletes, including increasing your flexibility, which in turn, keeps your muscles and joints safe.
Additionally, your oxygen intake will become more efficient as yoga is all about breath and movement, while a regular yoga practice also improves your mental toughness and focus. With yoga’s emphasis on the mind-body connection, athletes can enhance their active recovery and get back to training sooner by incorporating regular yoga into their training plan.
Jess is a living example of all that yoga can do for you. She’s an experienced triathlete and yoga has played a huge part in her fitness accomplishments. With her 500-hour Live, Love, Teach yoga training, she knows what it means to be a compassionate instructor while tailoring her approach to meeting the needs of athletes.
