Jessica is an American currently living in the land of the Midnight Sun- Norway. She loves embracing the slower and more organic lifestyle that she has found in Scandinavia, and is enjoying putting down roots in a community that celebrates nature and family, much like her native Idaho.
Jessica is a yoga teacher (ERYT 500), Ayurveda Yoga Therapist, and the Director of the Atman Yoga School. She also teaches and lectures at yoga festivals across the US and Europe (including the Bhakti Fest, Copenhagen Yoga Festival, Sedona Yoga Festival, Oslo Yoga Festival, and the Arctic Yoga Conference), and leads workshops and teacher trainings in Europe. Jessica is known for her creative and unique vinyasa flow sequences, and her ability to make yoga philosophy accessible and relevant to the modern yogi. She strives to embody her practice of yoga in all that she does, both on and off her mat, and she remains a student of the practice first and foremost.
Jessica believes that we all have the power to choose our own path, to choose our own happiness, and to create the life we want to live- the life we were meant to live. It is a daily choice. For her, this means a life of adventure, love, intention, and dedication. She is a free spirit who supports the ideology of power to the peaceful, truly feels that radical change is possible, and believes that compassion is the most important life lesson to be learned. Beyond yoga training, her love of movement, breath, and the study of the human body is also reflected in her 500 hour classical pilates training.
When not practicing or teaching yoga, Jessica can be found skiing deep powder on big mountains, hanging out with her husband, and playing with her husky dog Ada. Daily musts include: reading a book, drinking tea, chanting, and getting lots of sleep.
I want to thank you for being a wonderful mentor to me. I learned so much from you and admire you and your passion for the yoga practice. I hope one day I can be as much of an inspirational yoga leader as you are. Thank you for your patience and the time you have spent enhancing my teaching ability. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! — Megan S.
