San Clemente, CA

Jessilynn is a warrior for the sacred feminine and a cultivator of community. She has owned her own yoga studio for 9 years where she met Rochelle Schieck the founder of Qoya in 2013. Rochelle came in and taught a Qoya workshop that rapidly woke up Jessilynn's feminine side. Jessilynn told Rochelle that night that she would follow her around the world to have more of these experiences and she has been ever since, taking Rochelle's classes, retreats and trainings.

Jessilynn is passionate about sharing Qoya and facilitating and participating in anything that expands the heart and evolves the soul.

When did you take your first Qoya class? April 30, 2013

What does it mean for me to teach Qoya? When I teach I receive as much as I give. I connect to myself, my sisters and the oneness of all things. My heart, my body and my soul awakens...remembers.

What is your favorite song to dance to right now? Elastic Heart by Sia

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine? Return to Love by Marianne Williamson

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class? Trust the call that has you even thinking about it, there are no mistakes and there is no way you can do it wrong.
