Practice with Jessica
Jessica Stickler grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico and has always felt an irresistible magnetic pull towards New York City, where she has been living since 1998. Jessica discovered yoga as a means to manage anxiety and depression, and was attracted to the beauty of the forms and the depth of the philosophy. Having studied philosophy at Sarah Lawrence College, there was something strange and exciting about doing philosophy while standing on one's head! With the beat of punk rock in her heart, she headed into the concrete jungle only to discover that in the midst of a chaotic city, she could find some quiet and clarity at Jivamukti Yoga's flagship school in Manhattan.
She discovered through her practice that yoga can be the antidote to a dark and selfish world, and that compassion itself is radical action!
Jessica is an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher since 2008, and also serves as a mentor in Jivamukti's Teacher Training program. She teaches classes and workshops internationally in Australia, Germany, Trinidad, and the Czech Republic. She loves to teach a wide range of students from beginners through advanced practitioners, and has worked closely with those who are recovering from injury. She has continued her study of anatomy and movement with Amy Matthews, via The Breathing Project.
Jessica's classes incorporate dynamic movement, choreographic sequencing, with special attention to alignment and modification options. Classes are infused with a variety of inspiring music, meditation, and spiritual teachings.
