In her personal journey to find that place of inner stillness, Jesse returned again and again to her Yoga mat. That yearning for peace finally led her into teacher training. Now, she hopes to assist others in their journey and discovery of peace in mind, body, and spirit.
Jesse is passionate about making Yoga accessible to all levels, especially to athletes. She knows well the drive for performance, but has experienced the bliss of proper recovery, the nourishment provided by spending time on the mat. In a light-hearted, compassionate way, her teaching blends these energies.
"Undying, untouched by fire or the storms of life, there is a place inside where stillness and abiding peace reside. You can ride the breath to go there." Danna Faulds
Jesse Hughes instructs the following:
Yoga for Athletes
This class is a cross training class for athletes to help improve strength, flexibility, recovery, stability and a strong mental focus. You don't have to be an endurance athlete to get a lot out of this class! All-levels welcome! Classroom is not heated.
Start the day off right! This all-levels class is designed to wake up and energize the body. We will salute sun with a complete practice: the linking of breath and movement, forward bending and back bending, a bit of strength work, and a mild inversion. Feel the benefits of the practice tangibly in terms of energy, alertness, and increased range of motion at the beginning of the day! Classroom is not heated.
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.
Yoga for Runners & Athletes
This class will focus on opening the hips, quads, hamstrings, while also providing poses to strengthen core and balance. This class is great cross training for the sports enthusiast and the city dweller trying to create more flexibility and mobility. All levels welcome! Classroom is not heated.
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.
