Your teacher

Hello! I'm Jess

I found my Ikigai, my purpose, after studying environmental science at Stellenbosch. After 3 years, a number of traumas, and an epilepsy diagnosis, I made a conscious decision to change my life path for something that supported my mental wellbeing . The fact that the mind could be so overwhelmed and stressed that it affects the physical body in the form of a seizure was a huge reality check. My body shut down and said 'enough'.   Through yoga and meditation, I learnt to regulate my emotions and stress and stay in the present. I want to share this knowledge with you.

Yoga changed my life. I have been practising for 10 years now: in 2019, I went on a journey to Bali to do my Yoga Teacher Training. That training changed my life and I found my ikigai in teaching yoga, mindfulness and meditation. I am a qualified massage therapist, meditation, breathwork and yoga teacher, and baby massage instructor through internationally-recognised institutions throughout the world.

My passion is helping people to heal themselves by strengthening the mind-body connection, as well as sharing the power of nurturing touch and massage with parents and their babies.
