20131111JessicaArdis074After a winding 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, Anusara, and yoga nidra.

I am so lucky to call these luminous beings my teachers: Lilavati, Zhenja LaRosa, Justicia DeClue, Douglas Brooks, and Rebecca Hooper.  I am eternally grateful to the beautiful Victoria Ladd for teaching me harmonium, and to Mukti (Michael Buck) for inducting me into the magical art of Vedic Thai Yoga Massage.  I am currently studying Sanskrit with Dr. Luther Obrock.

My style is gentle yet precise, with a focus on alignment.  Nothing makes me happier than chanting with harmonium, and I include this 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!
