Jessy has been exploring movement for as long as she can remember. Her early interest in gymnastics and dance evolved into a dedicated Tae Kwon Do practice, in which she earned her black belt at age 10. She was nationally ranked in the youth musical forms division, which made for a smooth transition to cheerleading in High School. While studying psychology and biology at the College of Charleston, Jessy discovered her passion for yoga, which continues to be a profound physical and spiritual influence in her life. She holds an RYT 200 yoga certification and teaches flow-based classes that synthesize precise mechanics, alignment, and free form movement at several studios in the area. Following college, Jessy expanded her martial arts training and sharpened her heavy bag technique at local Muay Thai gyms while teaching English in Thailand. A few years ago, she joined a boxing gym in South Boston while working full time as a beekeeper. She also holds certifications in Massage Therapy and Thai Massage. Jessy brings the best of these complimentary disciplines and experiences to every TITLE class she leads, to help her students move efficiently, with both grace and power.
My personal mantra:
"Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should" - Max Ehrmann
My training style is:
Authentic & Fun
I joined TITLE during the most difficult time in my life. I experienced first hand the positive impact it can have on body, mind, and spirit. In this space not only do you become a member of a supportive community, but you get to hit a heavy bag with all your might - and in doing this, you can really feel your power. I also love learning about anatomy and the body and believe that teaching presents an opportunity for me to to grow, utilize my creativity, and an incentive for me to continue learning. I want to empower and challenge others to keep growing and learning as well.
What gives me my fighting spirit:
I witnessed my mom fight cancer for 20+ years, and she inspired me to live life to the fullest, help others, and to be the best that I can be.
