Born hypermobile, Jessica was initially drawn to yoga for the poses but quickly learned the hard way that one can be too flexible for their own good. Her injuries have inspired her to better understand how to move the body in a functional yet sustainable way, leading her to adapt her practice to incorporate strength and mobility training principles beyond traditional yoga.

She has since made it her mission to not just help others feel better through movement, but also to challenge her students to explore their bodies as much as their minds through reinforced alignment-based cueing so that they understand each pose has a beneficial purpose beyond just “making shapes.”

In addition to being RYT-550 certified, Jessica is the only ACROVINYASA Level 2 Teacher in Hong Kong and a leader in the city’s acroyoga community. Her continuing curiosity for different forms of movement has also led her to become a certified FRC Mobility Specialist and Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga Instructor.

 

Jessica has guest taught in Korea, Thailand, Singapore, China, Australia, and the UK, and currently leads program development while managing the student community for the Aligned Yoga Teacher Trainings with her mentor Briohny Smyth.

When away from the mat, she can likely be found hours deep into playing The Sims, dancing at a music festival, or exploring old buildings to appease her inner history geek.
