Jessica Seid shares her passion for yoga with everyone she meets. Initially finding the time on her mat as a physical workout, it morphed into a practice that helped her to restore mentally and emotionally.
Jessica’s classes encourage you to sense your body, with an emphasis on using your breath to feel every inch. She believes in breaking down movements so that students understand the asana fully: the function, the benefit, and how it can be sustainable for years to come. As a bonus, you will also be exposed to her bad jokes!
Her teaching philosophy: Breath is a guide, movement as medicine. She believes that yoga is a gateway into reclaiming the mind-body connection that is often lost through busy lifestyles, trauma, stress, and other demands of life. Jessica provides an intelligent sequence that makes sense within the body while also breaking down elements of the Vinyasa style practice.
Jessica obtained my RYT 200 certification with Yoga Alliance in December 2016 and completed a second 200 hour in July 2017. With a love of learning she continued to further her education and became certified under the Prison Yoga Project to provide yoga to victims of trauma in June 2017, obtained her RYT 500 certification in 2018 through Jason Crandell, and recently trained in Restorative Yoga with Janet Stone. Jessica has also been influenced and has received guidance from her study with Danni Pomplun.
Outside of yoga, Jessica has a huge fascination with language and hold a Master’s in Linguistics from the University of Hawai`i at Manoa. Her life can be summarized into four words: yoga, language, cats, and carbs.
