About

20131111JessicaArdis074After a circuitous route which included genetics and neuroscience research, oriental rug sales, and figure skating, I found my way to yoga.  Yoga is my passion and teaching is my dharma.  I am trained in vinyasa, yin, restorative, and anusara, and I continue to deepen my studies every chance I get.

I am so lucky to call these luminous beings my teachers: Corina Benner, Rebecca Hooper, Zhenja LaRosa, Justicia DeClue, and Lilavati.  I am eternally grateful to Victoria Ladd for teaching me harmonium, and to Mukti (Michael Buck) for inducting me into the magical art of Vedic Thai Yoga Massage.

My style is gentle yet precise, with a focus on alignment.  I believe in the power of mantra, and include chanting with harmonium in my classes whenever possible.  Yoga is not just about strengthening and stretching the body; it is about realizing that we are all radiant, infinite, primordial fires of truth, bliss, consciousness, bhakti, mukti, tranquility!

Om shanti!
