Jessica has a gentle way of teaching that is calming and yet pushes you at the same time. She begins classes by checking in with us, and then she attends to the needs of our particular bodies on any given day. She modifies poses for us with the effect of stretching us without over-doing it. Each class is unique; no two classes are exactly the same.Jessica is a wealth of knowledge and provides us with so much more than just a yoga class! Whether it's yoga, nutrition or other wellness advice, she offers a true mind and body experience. After class, we feel restored and strengthened and ready to tend to whatever might come next!

Jessica Sandhu is a wonderfully skilled yoga instructor whose quiet and focused attention on form, technique and breath has truly advanced my practice during the three years I have had the good fortune to work with her.
Over more than 15 years, since first starting to practice yoga, I have had many fine instructors, yet Jessica’s qualities stand out. I also appreciate the skill of her assists and her complete professionalism; always on time and extraordinarily generous and adept in making sure there is compatible coverage when she is traveling.
It is my pleasure to recommend Jessica.
“I reached out to Jess at the end of last year and asked if she could work with me. I needed help to become healthier; to make decisions to improve my life. At our first meeting, Jess asked what I wanted to accomplish. I had a long detailed list that she reduce to just one thing. I wanted to feel better about myself and how I looked. Thus began a journey that has really made a very significant difference. My friends and family refer to Jess as the miracle worker. Jess has helped my completely change my diet (and I am 15 pounds lighter now); Jess has worked with me to properly plan my exercise condition; but, most importantly Jess has worked with me to change the way I think about myself. The changes have been remarkable. They would not have happened without Jess’s guidance. To use her own words-Jess has helped me to be free and to live life more fully.”

“With no prior yoga experience, I started practicing with Jessica a few years ago. As a result, I am stronger, more limber and continually suprpise myself. My balance is improved and am always calm and taller at the end of each practice. Jessica is a fantastic teacher. She is reliable, patient, encouraging, and always challenging me. “

“I've tried yoga here and there, never really finding a studio at I loved or teachers that were memorable enough to make me want to return. This was until a friend recommended me to Jessica. She is an absolute delight and often what I look forward to most in my week. I've been able to see actual growth in my strength and flexibility in just a few months and as a competitive cyclist, practicing with Jessica has helped balance my training–making me stronger on the bike. It's been incredibly rewarding and I'm thankful to have found her.”

“I started practicing with Jess in 2014 when I was traveling quite a bit for work and needing a place to find grounding and calm. Jess not only welcomed a novice yogi when I first showed up, but she has helped me to grow stronger in my yoga practice, and as a person ever since! Her passion, happiness, and empathy for her students both new and more tenured is infectious and is the highlight of my day when I attend practice!”

“I cant say enough good things about how amazing it is to have Jessica teach yoga in our office. Even just one day a week has helped my back, and helped me build friendships with folks at the firm I never would have met otherwise. Jessica really focuses the practice to meet our needs -- to counteract sitting hunched over a desk, to relieve the stress of walking in heels, and to shut out work just for a bit to create a calm space in our minds! She was not overly-zen like some yoga instructors. She was real and accessible and that in turn made yoga so accessible. She is great about giving variations and explaining why we are doing certain poses. She is also great about working with those with very little yoga experience. I am a total fan girl!”

“Jessica is a positive force and an amazing person. As my life coach, Jessica was thoughtful, caring, flexible in working with changes that were happening in my life, clear with direction and feedback and incredibly skilled in how she approached my situation. Her guidance, experience, discretion, and method were invaluable. I am thankful for the structure and feedback she provided. Now that a few months have passed, I am even more impressed with Jessica. The work that we did together, the things that she taught me, the changes that she helped me find and encouraged me to make have lasted. Jessica made a huge impact. Any one who spends time with Jessica will find their life enriched.”

“Six months ago I tried to touch my toes and realized I could only get to my knees. Deciding it was time to be the person I used to be, I began working with Jess. She is patient and understanding; but more importantly my sessions are one of the things I look forward to each week. It is about the yoga but really it is a lot more. Learning to relax and be more mindful; and, of course becoming healthier. And, yes now I can touch my toes.”

“Wednesday yoga at lunchtime with Jess is hands down my favorite appointment on my calendar. Not only do I love having the opportunity to hit the pause button during the work week, but also I look forward to seeing Jess. Her energy and positivity brighten my week and inspire me to work harder to achieve my goals.”

“Jessica applies a truly holistic approach to health that's grounded in yoga but extends beyond this to include the impact of diet, day-to-day stressors and major life experiences on our minds and bodies. Our one-on-one sessions have taken her classes to another level with poses and other life tips (including a number of book recommendations!) tailored to whatever is happening in my life at that moment.”
-Alison P., VP at consulting firm
“Working with Jessica was a life changing experience. Whether you are in need of a complete life change or small adjustments to bring you even closer to self discovery goals she will guide you down the desired path. I felt I was doing everything well and there wasn’t much room for change. With her guidance, she took me to the next level and helped me re-frame and learn many new practices that were easy to implement and made an incredibly positive difference every day. I have more energy now than I had in my twenties and feel great all thanks to Jessica’s coaching.”
