"Until about 8 months ago, yoga was one of those things on my “should do” list. I’m fairly active, go to the gym, do a bit of running & cycling, and have a generally busy (hectic?!) life.
Also being a bit stressed a lot of the time, I’ve often thought yoga would be a good antidote to pressure I put on my mind and body day to day.
However, I’d been reluctant to start: worried about stepping into unknown making a fool out of myself in front of experience yogis.
I got the chance to give things ago through Yoga sessions arranged at work, and it’s been transformative. Jess runs these sessions. She is super friendly, makes you feel at ease and takes the group through the practice in a which makes you work to your own ability, achieving a great mix of physical challenge with some much-needed time to slow down and be a bit more mindful.
I’ve been going to her sessions for over 6 months now and I’ve really seen a difference: my flexibility and core strength are noticeably improved and most importantly it gives me a bit of much needed mental balance through time to reflect and put something back into my wellbeing"
"I have been coming to Jess’s yoga classes for several months now- I find the classes not only help me to switch off (following challenging working weeks) but help me to stretch & become more flexible following my vigorous exercise regime. From attending Jess’s classes I find my anxieties & mental health improve as it focuses on acknowledging yourself in the moment- rather than thinking about the long list of tasks that have yet to be accomplished. Jess always takes the time to help you get into the positions, as well as improving your posture & reminding you to breathe! 😊
I certainly notice the difference of when I cannot attend a class- to which tasks can become overwhelming & scenario’s stressful.
Jess is a great teacher & I will continue to attend her classes as there are so many positives to be gained from them.
Thank you Jess for your patience and enthusiasm in these classes- you are a heaven scent!"
"Jess’s classes are great, she’s so warm and friendly and makes everyone feel welcome and included no matter their level and experience. I really enjoy every class as it's varied and inclusive, concentrating on different elements every week with options for beginners and more advanced yogi’s! I’d recommend Jess’s classes to everyone of all yoga experience, she’s a fantastic teacher!"
