Womb Healer. Late Bloomer. Truth-Teller. Shape Shifter. Shame Slayer. Provocateur of Soul

Jessica lives for connection. She's sought that connection in many different arenas over the last 20 years from massage therapy and yoga teaching to running a start-up business, hosting a podcast, working for corporate America, founding a non-profit, mentoring, speaking, writing, and consulting. She's traveled the world teaching, sharing and exploring the dynamics of connection. 

Her passion to explore and connect with the emerging feminine in her own life is redefining a new threshold to which she is an apprentice to the Great Mystery which surrounds all of us. Life in this moment is sweet, simple and the only accolade that feels important to share is that she is learning to trust herself, the wisdom that lives in her body and her wise, wild and free essence.

Her humorous, relatable and nourishing approach to spiritual life, relationships, motherhood and the challenges we all face on the path are what draws students to her classes. Her writing has been featured in Elephant Journal, Medium, Mantra Yoga & Health, Origin Magazine, Rebelle Society, The Urban Howl, and Intent.com.

When did you take your first Qoya class? I took my first "in person" Qoya class at my Teacher Training with Sara Ballard. Before that, I was practicing Qoya online with Rochelle and of course during my online initiation. The moment Sara invited us to drop into the class, I started bawling like a baby! I had followed the calling this far and I could not believe I was actually there!

What does it mean for me to teach Qoya? For me, teaching Qoya is about holding space and supporting women to not only return home to their bodies but to then journey through the land of their body and connect with SOUL. As a Provocateur of Soul, I feel that each class is an opportunity to defy convention and become swept away in the current of possibility.
