Why SHIFT YOGA Training?

Hear What Our Past Graduates Had to Say

As someone who's practiced yoga for over 15 years, it wasn't until I started taking classes at SHIFT YOGA that I truly loved yoga. Taking Jessie's classes was on an entirely different level.  She allows you to feel and be whomever you want, move in a way that feels good for you and brings you into a judgement free space. It wasn't until I was taking classes with Jessie that I knew I wanted to teach yoga and learn directly from her.

 Her YTT was super empowering, giving you knowledge to use personally for yourself and to use while you teach, really giving you an overall picture of the why's, how's and what's of yoga and the benefits for your mind, body and soul. She made it extremely easy to learn and teach back what she provided and allowed you to express and use your own version in a way that felt good for you. I loved the flexibility of making each class your own, but having the structure to follow easily.


I highly recommend Jessie's YTT to anyone looking to expand their yoga knowledge and learn from one of the BEST!
