Jess offers classes that cultivate self-discovery. Her teachings are infused with yoga philosophy and biomechanics, creating a unique and fun experience in every class.
Jess Purtell is an E-RYT 500 (Experienced Yoga Teacher) and YACEP through Yoga Alliance and a Balanced Body Pilates Mat Instructor. She received her certification to teach yoga in 2010 and now has over 8,000 hours of teaching experience.
Jess’ practice transformed when she started focusing on the deep core muscles. Her intention is to teach those to move from their center, creating a more balanced and stable foundation for all things life has to offer. In her journey to discover how to teach from the core, Jess became an anatomy enthusiast, taking time to learn from and collaborating with Doctors, Physical Therapists, and Yoga Anatomy experts.
Jess leads a class with depth, her teaching style evolves with her knowledge. While some might say she is a teacher of teachers, she teaches all ages and believes we are all learning from each other. When you can’t find Jess on the mat, she is hanging out with her two children, her husband, and their pup, Freddie Mercury.
Jess is absolutely the best teacher you will find. She not only brings an incredible wealth of knowledge to her students but she is patient, funny, and very respectful. I can’t wait to get to her classes each week.
Jess is a complete yoga teacher. It’s clear she has studied many types of yoga and she does not only teach the physical part of the practice but the mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. She makes it fun and her sense of joy touches all in class.
Jess is a mix of wholeness and wellness. She integrates positive thinking along with the healthy mind/healthy body (and always some good jams on the side).
Jess leads her students on journeys of self-discovery and of new understandings. It isn't about what you do on the mat or during the class, but what you take with you when you leave. Her classes will make you stronger, inside and out.
