""There have been times in my life when I needed to focus on my own breath and rhythm of life, times when I needed to cry, times I needed to explore my yoga practice, times I needed to run to a friend and times when I needed to sweat. Thank you for creating a space where I can do all of these. You are such a bright light in my life and I love you." Love, Shannon
"It feels like yesterday that I walked into my 1st yoga class. This crazy lady was making us sit in a circle and listen to our breath...Iwas hooked. I fell in love with yoga in your classes and I'm so thankful for that. You inspired me to go through YTT and become a teacher. I hope to be the crazy lady who makes her students put their feet on total strangers shoulders to practice handstands. You are such a fun, inspiring and loving person. Most importantly I want to thank you for teaching me about my body. Learning how unique and different all of our bodies are allowed me to see even clearer how much God loves me. All my love, Mallory

She challenges me to dig deeper, love harder and shine brighter than the moment before. Jessie is the most authentic, genuine badass human I have the delight of sharing the space with." Love, Mo

"When I first took a yoga class with you it was just a class that happened to fit into my schedule on that day. Little did I know what was about to happen. Before I took your class I was still very focused on the physical aspect of my practice. One day, during your class, something started to change. First I think the music got my attention. Next I realized that you took the time each week to develop a unique flow that was like a dance to the playlist your prepared. I was hooked. I needed to be there to see what was going to happen next, how you would share and in turn inspire me to deepen my practice and go beyond the physical. One of the things I love most about you is how real you are and willing to share all aspects of you and your life. The abundance of knowledge and experience that you have on the topic of yoga is amazing and you are able to share it with others in a way that is fun." Namaste and much love, Julie
""Words cannot express how grateful I am to have met you. Your spirit, authenticity, and light have greatly impacted my life. I have gained so much perspective on teaching, on living and loving. Thank you for being you." Love, Salena
""Your Tuesday morning class changed my life. Every week I would eagerly wait so I could see your smiling face, listen to your inspiring words and gain new insight on my life. Each Tuesday morning would end in a tearful Shavasana as your words would touch my soul. My life has been transformed and it has been an honor to practice in your presence and learn under your guidance. You have helped me build confidence, love myself, open my heart, instill curiosity and find joy. You use your gifts in such a profound way and your teaching, humility, grace, love and laughter are blessing to me. You led me to a place of greater understanding and openness and my life has been forever changed by you." Namaste, Jill
""The first time I ever did her yoga class, she was standing outside the door greeting everyone. I walked up to her and nervously said "I've never done yoga before." She looked at me, shrugged and with a warm smile, gave me a hug and said "who cares?" She was so nice about it. She talked to me for a while and it was like we had already known each other for years. During her yoga class, she let me practically do what I wanted. I couldn't follow along as it was my first time, but she really emphasized that she we be most happy if we were happy, if we tried our best and did what makes us feel good. It was so non-intimidating and I felt so welcomed even though I was completely new to the class. I will never forget that Jessie." Love, Stephanie
"From the moment I walked into your class my life and my yoga practice changed forever. I will never forget the energy I felt rushing over and through me when you first gave me one of your loving touches. The impact you have is outrageous. You have transformed yoga for me. You always make me feel strong when I am weak, empowered when I feel doubt and ultimately loved when I feel unworthy. No one in this world has created a space of sheer vulnerability and freedom for me and for that my appreciation for you runs deeper than the blood through my veins. So thank you you epically formulated human being of consciousness and light. I love you, I love you, I love you." XOXO Morgan
""Your class has taught me so much about myself, but more importantly about other people. Allowing people to be themselves always and giving them the freedom to be fully present and who they are in any given moment. Through learning this about other people it has taught me to allow myself the same ability/opportunity and therefore making me a better person everyday." Love, Tiffany
"You have inspired me to be my best self. To show up authentically in all my relationships, to love unconditionally, to express myself and love who I am! You introduced me to the mental element of yoga. You have taught me how to not only do yoga, but live yoga. You are a beautiful soul and I'm so blessed to have you in my life." Love, Kristen
