Our Founder + Guide, Jessica Williams, has been practicing yoga since 2004. She started her journey at Baron Baptiste’s studio in Boston where she fell in love with the heat and strength of the sequence. Moving away from Boston and bouncing from coast to coast, yoga kept Jes grounded through life’s many challenges. She completed her first 200 hour RYT from Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia in 2012 with the inspirational Diana + John Vitarelli, and continued her studies with Lisa Murray at Yoga Community in 2013-2014. This 2nd training focused on the eight-fold path of Raja Yoga. Her personal practice and teachings range from a powerful Ashtanga vinyasa to the inner practices of Raja.
In 2015, Jes studied with the amazing Jane Austin in San Francisco, who focuses on prenatal and postnatal health and wellness. Jes is certified through her school, Mama Tree, and highly recommends to any woman thinking about being a mama, pregnant, or already a mama to learn from Jane!
In March 2018 Jes wrapped up her 500 hour program with YogaWorks and is joining their team of teachers August 2018! YogaWorks has been leading trainings for 30 years. Her mentors are Christy Brown, Michele Klink, Sarah Ezrin and Erika Trice.
Jes now resides and teaches in Sonoma County, Ca and through Yoga Alliance is an ERYT 200 // RYT 500 // YACEP // RPYT 90. She teachers classes, workshops, and teachers on the business of yoga as well as prenatal/postnatal health.
Jes's first child, Hudson, arrived in September 2015; her and her husband could not be more overjoyed! Her second child, Bodhi, arrived February 2017. She loves to giggle with her kids, paint, and explore the many uses of essential oils.
A jack of many trades, she's enjoying a big life in a small town.
