Jessica Defoe
300hr Certified

As a life-long musician, music educator since 2003 and sincere student of yoga since 2005, Jessica’s practice began as a way to manage stress and anxiety. Over the years, she has the blessed fortune of sitting with many teachers in the Jivamukti Yoga Method. After completing her first 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2014, and her Level I Yoga-Nidrā Teacher Training in 2020 with Brenda Feuerstein, when the opportunity arose to complete her 300 hour Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training (Online/Italy 2020) with Olga Oskorbina, Camilla Veen, and mentor Jessica Stickler, it was indeed “perfect” timing.

Jessica’s classes have a clear theme or focus based in yogic teachings and scriptures. She uses Nāda, music, chanting and sound at the core of her classes to uplift the practice, creating a space filled with love and compassion for all beings.

Jessica’s endless and boundless gratitude to her holy teachers Sharonji and Davidji for the beautiful lens to view and move through life that is Jivamukti Yoga: joyful devotion opening her heart, endeavouring the absolute best she can to elevate the lives of all (human, animal and plant) Holy Beings. As a teacher of both yoga and high school instrumental music, she humbly offers the many teachings she has been blessed with from her dearest teachers. Endless and boundless gratitude to the teachers who have come before us and who have so lovingly laid this path at our feet, for their teachings, friendship, love and mentorship.
