Jess Peterson — Jess is the editorial intern at Yoga International. She is currently pursuing a bachelors degree in journalism with specializations in creative writing and Spanish at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
In addition to writing, Jess is an advocate for raising awareness around mental health, enjoys running outdoors, and has an immense love for her three dogs: Sammy, Juno and Reno.
When it comes to yoga, Jess has been practicing ever since she found her mother's old Rodney Yee tapes in her childhood home. Her favorite pose to practice is pigeon, and if she had a time machine and the talent would be cast as the Log Lady in the first two seasons of the TV series, Twin Peaks.
