Jesse J is a San Francisco based yoga instructor and East Coast native.  She is inspired to bring the ancient physical, mental and spiritual practices of Yoga to as many as she can reach.  She has found a niche teaching in office environments around the Bay Area and helps to bring blood flow & zen through the bodies and minds of some of the most impactful employee’s out there.

From her former corporate sales experience, Jesse is able to relate to the average office worker and helps to bring a comfortable sense of understanding of what working in an office environment means to the body and mind.  She is passionate about educating every body she encounters about the importance to move and release stress that builds up throughout working days.

Jesse is also passionate about teaching yoga, meditation and mindfulness to children, everywhere. She brings a playful energy into her kids classes that encourages the kids to be present and stay focused on the practice.

In her classes, in the office or in public studios around San Francisco, Jesse expresses the importance of the breath.  She applies a focus on the connection between breath and body movement in her yoga instruction for adults and kids, which she feels helps her students focus on their bodies in the moments throughout the practice, resulting in more mindful actions on and off the mat.
