yoga teacher, student, nature lover, world traveler.

Jess found yoga when she was studying at drama school after her mum suggested she attend a class to help with flexibility for dancing. As a classic just-moved-out-of-home young adult, she instantly resisted the idea, but eventually gave in and tried her very first vinyasa class.

She was hooked!

(But no one tell her mum!)



As well as teaching yoga for various studios around New Zealand, Jess can teach specialist classes tailored to suit your needs.

Whether that be private lessons, yoga for performers, yoga for kids or assisting at your teacher training.


Jess provided beautifully crafted sequences that allowed her to reach all her students and open doorways for them to move past their physical practice and beyond the body.

Her ability to face challenges with humour and compassion, whilst always maintaining her drive to follow her passions is inspiring. She has a lot to offer her colleagues, friends and students.

I love Jess’ yin classes. After a stressful day at work I can come and be guided into letting go of any stress and tension I’m holding. Her sequencing always makes me feel like I’ve been able to truly get into a place of calm and release.

I have known Jess for over two years as one of my regular yoga instructors. Jess' vibrant personality and friendly nature  means she is highly regarded and well liked by all of us in the local yoga community. Her yoga teaching abilities are of a very high standard and she teaches each class in a thoroughly professional manner.
