Jessica King, MSW, LCSW, E-RYT

Jessica came to yoga over 20 years ago as an alternative way to “work out”.  Immediately she felt the the mind-body connection, but it took her many years of exploring and practicing to understand yoga was more of a “working in” for her.  Jessica expanded her practice and by taking a 200 hour teaching training with Dolly Stavros of then Red Stone Yoga out of Charlotte NC.  Jessica’s training and style is in vinyasa yoga, linking breath to movement, and exploring the uniqueness of each practice day to day.  Jessica has had further training in special populations including kids yoga, prenatal yoga, trauma-informed yoga, and yoga for athletes.  Jessica teaches from an psycho educational philosophy of “when we know better, we do better” which makes her classes informative and experiential.

Jessica has taught in various settings including private yoga in homes, gyms, yoga studios, retreat centers, and she owned a yoga studio for several years.  Jessica leads workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and speaks to businesses/corporations on utilization of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness as a way to cope with chronic stress and burnout.

Jessica’s yoga teaching is heavily influenced by her career as a licensed clinical social worker.  She looks at the whole person, their environment, their support system, and works with all of the people within those systems to help people recognize their full potential.  Jessica believes people are resilient and they can transform after challenges and that mindfulness practices help the transformation process.
