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.
I love how passionate, caring, & competent Jess is. I love the vibe of her class, the versatility of the movements she coaches & the transition from one movement to another. I feel tuned in, myself, comfortable & safe in her class. I’m thankful & grateful 🙏🏽
Jess is a fabulous instructor. She brings her passion for personal wellness and sense of humor to each class. Today's session was well planned and included a mixture of flow and poses. I felt rejuvinated afterwards.
Jess always delivers! I have known her for over 10 years. She is a very skillful Pilates and Yoga instructor bringing balance and challenge to each of her classes.
As always, Jess put her heart and soul into a great class and a fantastic way to start the new year! Can't wait to start the year of the frog!!
