Jessica, a native New Yorker, fell in love with yoga several years ago and has since enjoyed deepening her practice and sharing her knowledge. Aside from her love of yoga, Jessica is also a certified Health & Lifestyle Coach and Intuitive Reiki Practitioner. Her love of art, health and healing made yoga a natural fit. Jessica has practiced yoga extensively since 2005. After 5 years of a dedicated personal practice she went through a teacher training and earned her 200-hour certification in NY.
Jessica’s mission is to help bring flexibility and increased awareness of mind and body. Allowing students to let go and have the opportunity to connect with their own goodness as they enjoy healing through relaxation, focus through breath and movement and letting go through flexibility.
Jessica has a passion for teaching but is always a student at heart. She offers sequences that will challenge you, inspire you and keep your heart open. Her concentration on alignment and connection with the breath is a key element in her classes to connect with your physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies on a deeper level. She embraces healing with her warm and inviting nature as she guides her students on the pathway to health through use of asana, intention, energy work and breath. Jessica uses music to set the mood and create a warm, fun-loving class.

Jessica Calderon instructs the following:
A slow paced class, designed as a class focused on alignment and adjustments for foundational poses. Also perfectly aligned as the next step past "Beginners", to continue to introduce the foundational elements of yoga. Perfect for anyone looking to continue to hone their new practice (and perfectly suitable if you haven't been to our beginners class yet too!) and excellent for rehabilitation, recovery, or just not feeling up to a power flow on a given day! All levels welcome. Classroom is not heated.
Flow & Meditation
In this all-levels class, we will move thru 40 minutes of flowing yoga postures, followed by a guided meditation and/or yoga nidra. Here in a comfortable environment, you will receive the tools to find, practice, and feel the benefits of meditation and yoga nidra. Classroom temperature is 75-78.
Restorative Yoga is a slow all-levels class designed to balance an active practice or decompress after a stressful day. Using props, postures are held for a longer period of time to initiate a deep relaxation of the body and mind. Classroom is not heated.
The body is the vehicle to your true nature and meditation is the method used to experience peace and bliss. Learn how to calm the mind, be present in your body and feel rejuvenated. This class is structured using experiential instruction combined with group meditation, usually two guided sits offered with time for questions and clarifications. This class is open to beginner and establish meditators. The benefits of daily meditation practice can reduce stress, anxiety and insomnia as well as increase clarity, concentration and creativity.
Foundational Flow is the bridge between Basics and Infinity Flow. This class allows each student to flow thru a series of moderately challenging poses. Each series has been created to work through lines in the body building strength, flexibility, and endurance. Classroom is not heated.
Powerful dynamic flowing sequences with music! Many skill levels come to this class so many options are given, however knowledge of sun salutations and solid all around fitness is recommended for this class. Be prepared to sweat and have fun! Classroom temperature is WARM (between 82-87 degrees).
